Life not turned out how you had expected or hoped? Something not sitting right? A niggling thought or unrest within you? Happiness feels out of reach? Having experienced my own, at times, bumpy journey it has given me a fierce and unshakeable belief that change is possible in us all and we all have the potential to have a life beyond our wildest dreams! That’s not always to say we get what we may have fantasised about but that we work on ourselves; and as we embark on this our dreams change and they become reachable as we become more teachable and learn about the authentic us and what we really want

I use an integrative style of counselling that enables a more personalised approach for you as a client. Counselling sessions are client led, in that anything that is concerning you can be discussed, including things past or present, major or seemingly minor issues...anything that is causing concern. I care passionately that every individual understands their value, significance and potential, no matter what their past has held, or the nature of present difficulties.

You might have been experiencing uncertainty and anxiety, or low self-esteem. Your life experience, or how you relate to yourself and others, may be troubling you. There could be patterns in your behaviour which you feel unable to change- history repeating itself. Possibly the ways that you have learned to see yourself and others are unhelpful, and you are want to create better relationships with yourself and others. Perhaps you are looking for another way, to give yourself time and space to explore and understand yourself better, and how to respond in life situations, relationships and work.

You may be finding life tough, finding it hard to put your finger on what’s causing distress. General feelings of sadness and low self-esteem may be making it difficult to see who you truly are. Your sense of purpose may be ebbing, or indeed gone altogether. Instead, there may be a constant, nagging feeling of wishing things were different. But not knowing what that different looks or feels like. Whether or not it even exists. Do you feel your voice is being smothered by work pressures, or your personal aims are being crushed?

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.

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 underlying my theoretical approach is a belief in autonomy and the tendency towards growth and the possibility of change. These are the hallmarks of the humanistic tradition, and whilst I occasionally draw from behavioural approaches, I do so from a philosophically person centered standpoint. Essentially, I can help facilitate positive change, often in as few as six sessions only, through using a Solution Focused approach.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Folkestone are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Folkestone then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Folkestone, or Child Psychologists in Folkestone.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Folkestone psychologists specialising in EMDR.


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 Folkestone 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.
