I believe in the importance of providing a warm and safe environment that aims to allow an open, honest and non-judgmental space for the client to bring what is important to them. I am aware that life challenges and difficulties affect people in different ways, therefore i believe that it is paramount that this is acknowledged when working with clients by viewing each client as unique in their own way. Therefore, I use a variety of approaches as i believe that when working with the client’s needs that flexibility is important to explore and allow the client to build in self awareness, confidence and empowerment.

The reality is that we all encounter things in our lives which cause us suffering and pain. Many of us will reach a point where we feel a sense of impass or something which challenges our sense of who we are, particularly as we develop outside of the families we grew up in. The human brain is able to develop ingenious ways of coping, but our coping mechanisms can end up causing us more distress than they fix. We then end up in a pattern of beliefs and behaviours which negatively affect us and leave us feeling hopeless and stuck. I belive that it's possible for everyone to lead a fulfilling life. We sometimes just need a little help.

I strive to be an approachable, warm and accepting counsellor who can offer you a confidential, safe and non-judgemental space to talk about whatever it is that is troubling you. I work integratively, but I do so from a philosophically person-centered standpoint, in a relaxed yet respectful environment. I can help restore past issues and facilitate positive change, often in as few as six sessions, using a Solution Focused/CBT approach that focuses on overcoming life obstacles and moving away from feeling 'stuck'. I can help you with building confidence, resilience and focusing on new achievements and becoming goal oriented.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Ashford?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Ashford specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
