I am an experienced Relate Trained Relationship & Sex Therapist. I work with couples & individuals who are in an intimate relationship. I extend that service to clients who are single, plus couples & individuals in the process of separating, deciding Therapy to be a more appropriate service when mediation is considered unnecessary, but closure is. I promote clients to feel valued & respected by inviting them to tap into their own resources & ideas about what suits them to make changes to move forward, by providing impartial, unbiased & a neutral lens into the relationship.

Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed or worried ? Perhaps your mood has been low for a while and you can’t seem to shift that feeling. Sometimes life events such as losing a loved one, relationship break-ups, family problems or work issues can leave us feeling helpless. Perhaps you are considering help to untangle your thoughts. Maybe you think a lot about things that have happened in the past that still affect you. Sometimes there may be a sense that life is lacking in meaning and direction. We can all lose sight of who we really are and what we want from life.

Relationships can at times be a great source of distress and anxiety; sometimes it’s easy to feel stuck and unable to move forwards. You may be having difficulties with communication, infidelity, intimacy, sexual difficulties, or perhaps you just can’t seem to get along anymore and you’re not sure why. Whether you are experiencing difficulties within your relationship, or find it difficult to form lasting relationships, counselling can give you the space you need to explore and understand these issues. I offer sex therapy and relationship/couple counselling from my base in Canterbury (Kent) and online.

Life can often present us with some difficult and painful challenges. How we respond to these challenges, will vary according to our life experiences, especially our early childhood experiences. Having the time and space to untangle and make sense of our past and it’s impact on our present, will help us move out of unhelpful thinking styles, help us move from being stuck in negative relationships and also help find ways to make the changes necessary in our lives. However, on occasion when the source of a persons difficulty is linked with traumatic experiences, then a more specialised trauma focused approach is required.

Feeling overwhelmed, anxious, down? Are you having issues in your relationships, or perhaps you're wondering how on earth it got to this? These thoughts and feelings can be isolating and, when allowed to, can take over. But, by taking these initial steps you’ve already accepted that this is not who or where you want to be; this is not your forever.

We all face times in our lives when we feel lost, anxious, and overwhelmed. We may find it hard to get out of bed in the morning, or feel like no-one will understand what we are going through. Sometimes intense memories of a loss or a traumatic event in our past may be hindering us from moving forward, creating painful patterns in our day to day lives. Perhaps we just feel that something is 'off' and sense that we are not living our lives in the most fulfilling and meaningful way possible. I am a qualified Integrative counsellor trained to work with adults and young people, and want to help you find a way forward.

Given the latest government advice all sessions will be offered online. I have ten years of experience of working in this way and I am happy to give you guidance to set this up. You will need an internet connection (preferably high speed), a headset and microphone. I can also offer telephone sessions but face to face via an online platform is preferable. Psychotherapy is about being listened to and seen in a particular way. There is nowhere else in life that offers a time and space to focus on your 'self' - your body and your mind. My Kent practice is in the village of Bridge near Canterbury and is easy to reach.

You come to me because you desire impactive integrative counselling and psychotherapy with aspects of personal coaching and mentoring. My approach is predominately analytical, seeking to identify and treat the causes of symptoms, both conscious and unconscious. Such insights reduce repeated patterns of thinking and behaviours that cause depression, anxiety and other mental health issues. With a background in philosophy, linguistics and the law we use a socratic but person-centred approach which established what you want to achieve before agreeing a bespoke plan for treatment.

Being a young adult in 2022 is not easy. From panic attacks, to a bad habit of browsing Instagram and Tinder at 4am - I specialise in helping young adults (age 18 to 30) build a healthier day-to-day life by talking about their lives, problems and thoughts. Do any of these statements describe you: "My coursework is just too much, I feel miserable, money problems, I lost someone I loved, I worry my girlfriend is cheating, I'm putting on weight, I suffer bad anxiety in normal situations, I'm having panic attacks, I need to understand myself right and get better now."

Great, you have already taken the first steps for you. I am not the expert on you, you are. I am here to support and explore with you what you maybe finding difficult or just not feeling Ok. This may be in your relationships, in your physical body or you are finding both these things are overwhelming sometimes. Together we can wonder, ponder and educate ourselves and understand, why? Then we can make a strategy and build on your already available resilience (you are here remember), and improve this together. This maybe just a few sessions, sometimes just one or a little longer if you need this.

I additionally have considerable experience in working with more severe mental health issues and complex presentations, such as personality disorder and psychosis.

In order to establish what my the client wants from therapy, how sessions will fit into their lifestyle and are their needs and goals realistic.

Are you feeling down, struggling with depression and/or anxiety, pretending everything is OK when it's not? Do you have the sense that life has passed you by, that you lack purpose and drive? Maybe you've lost that sense of self, suffer low self-esteem or feel that you just don't belong? Are you struggling with trauma/past abuse or feel isolated, anxious and lonely? Perhaps you have relationship difficulties or health issues that are getting you down? Maybe you're elderly or stuck at home, feeling forgotten? These are all good reasons to access counselling and help you move forward in life. I look forward to hearing from you.
