We ALL have difficulties of one kind or another throughout our lives… some things are easier to deal with than others and many of us could do with a trusting, non-judgemental relationship with a caring professional who can enable, guide, and support you through such difficult times. Therapy will give you the opportunity to be heard, to reflect, question, process, analyse, and heal, allowing for change(s) in your inner and outer world. I am a compassionate and empathic Counsellor with a down to earth approach and here to assist you on the journey- whether short or long-term. I embrace the ‘Integrative approach’ to therapy, meaning

Are you unable to move on? Are you being triggered not fully understanding why you react, often caught in a repeated upsetting memory or memories and unable to shake its grasp? Do you feel misunderstood, confused, angry, and isolated? Do your loved ones and friends comment on how you've changed? Sounds familiar? You may be suffering from PTSD, grief or trauma. Don't despair. There is hope. As a qualified mental health practitioner and trauma therapist I have worked with people like you. Some have experienced violent crime, domestic violence, sexual assault, road traffic accidents, bullying, abuse, neglect or complex military trauma.

Sometimes life can seem "too much".  Maybe you are feeling stuck and not sure how to move forward?  If you are in a place of overwhelm, counselling can help you to talk through your feelings, explore who you are and learn to cope with the struggles that life can bring. I offer a calm and supportive space where I will listen without judgement, something which can be difficult to find when confiding in friends or family. I currently work with adults and young people over 16.

Don't despair, help is at hand" I have been an integrative therapist for over ten years and lecture at Inter- Psyche, Kent and Medway NHS Trust. I work with children and adults, in couples or individually. I utilise an array of counselling approaches as I believe not one method is superior to another and that we are all unique individuals.I have helped my clients understand themselves better, be it overcoming depression, loss, anxiety or improving their personal relationships. What to expect: Counselling is about building a trusting relationship. To help you feel safe and secure I provide a boundaried, respectful, confidential and non-discriminative alliance. At the end of our first session I always ask “do you feel you can work with me”, as it is important that you feel comfortable and safe. Due to the busyness of modern day life and people being constantly on the move, I am able to accommodate this by offering skype or telephone sessions. Next step Seeking help is often the hardest part yet I would like to commend you on your courage for taking this first step. Get in touch so we can start this journey together.

We may use different words to describe what's going on for us when we are looking for therapy: unsure, fed up, low, empty, frustrated, anxious, panicky, over-thinking, unable to sleep, too sensitive, or like can't carry on... Perhaps feeling not in control, not belonging, invisible or wanting to escape, or lost. It can be overwhelming, taking too much from us. So starting therapy is right. We can use therapy space, free of judgement, expectation or failure, to talk it all through and work things out.

I am a clinical psychotherapist who is experienced in working with adults and young people (ages 11-16). I work to help my clients through a wide range of issues known for causing psychological distress. These issues vary from anxiety to low self-esteem/confidence, stress, depression, addiction, grief and loss, bereavement, relationship issues, anger issues, abuse, self-harm, bullying and trauma. Sometimes it can be overwhelming when experiencing such issues causing us to feel disconnected from life, ourselves and those around us. Maybe it’s time to talk to someone.

Life can sometimes becomes overwhelming, what you thought you had a handle on can suddenly feel incredibly unbearable. Conflicting emotions or unhealthy behaviours can arise from self-expectations, family or peer pressure and the never ending demands of a 24/7 world. Whatever your age, background, race or culture, being heard and talking freely in a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space can be incredibly empowering in understanding who you are and making sense of the thoughts and feelings that arise. As an integrative counsellor, I am flexible in working with the best possible approach to achieve the best outcome for you.

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 Dartford?
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 Dartford 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.
