I offer a Counselling service to individuals, young people and families who may be facing personal difficulties and challenges. We all experience painful events and losses at various times in our lives and Counselling creates a safe containing space for clients to explore and process their emotions on a range if issues that may be impacting on them negatively. This can help clients to identify their triggers which may be responsible for creating the emotional and or physical distress. It also helps develop some strategies for clients to have at their disposal to manage better the impacts of the distress being experienced.

I know that life has become really challenging and difficult to cope with. The stress and pressure we face has affected our health, work, relationships and mental well-being. Despite all our best efforts to manage, nothing seems to work. It’s during these times that having someone qualified and experienced to talk with and support us becomes a much-needed relief – especially as some of the difficulties we are going through are deep rooted and stem from painful childhood experiences like changing schools 6 different times, abuse, a bike accident and not having many friends. This is something I can personally identify with.

I'm here to support client's who have challenging lives which are affected by anxiety disorders, depression, bereavement or who feels stuck in their relationship patterns. We build our attachment styles from a young age. We can find ourselves stuck in the same attachment patterns as we get older. I have supported clients to face their own attachment fears that impact their personal relationships. Also worked with clients who have self-harm and suicidal ideation and supported them to face their missing voids.

Good rapport with your Counsellor's the first step towards achieving change. My Counselling approach is different to anything my clients (both Adults & Children) have experienced before and it's because of this, they've felt at ease quickly and gained maximum benefit from their sessions. I've Counselled since 2019 and have a diverse range of additional skills that I integrate into my Counselling work. I work with Victims of Crime within Kent, as well as Children & Families who've been bereaved. I have over 10yrs experience working with Children & Young People, including those with additional needs, so my approach is inclusive.

Hello and welcome to all of you who are taking the courageous step to find a therapist to help you. My clients have often commented on how relaxed and empowered they feel when working with me. This enables the exploration of emotions, behaviour and thought processes to help overcome concerns and issues. My work ethos is that successful counselling comes from a safe and trusting relationship, guided by professional principles. If you are struggling to cope with challenging situations your self-care starts here. You have nothing to lose by giving me a call because I believe everyone is capable of change with the right support.

Sometimes our lives are interrupted by events, changing circumstances and personal challenges. Having a trusting and non-judgemental relationship with a caring professional, can enable you to work through such difficult times and move forward. We can work together to explore your current situation in a safe, non-directive and confidential way. This will give you the opportunity to reflect, question, process, allow for change, or whatever you feel is necessary at this time. If what you need is someone to listen unconditionally and respectfully, as you find your way on your journey, then we can work together.

Sometimes life can feel like a struggle, provoking anxiety, distress and confusion. You may feel that something needs to change, but are unsure of which direction to take. Maybe you already know what you need but would welcome a little support and clarity to enable you to move forward. Perhaps you have experienced a significant life event, either recently or in the past, that has derailed you? Bereavement, relationships, work and health are among the many concerns that can be de-stabilising. Counselling can help to untangle past or current concerns that are causing you to feel low or isolated.

You may be looking to understand yourself better to live a fulfilled life, process difficult emotions and deal with stress and issues affecting your mental health. The coping mechanisms you've adopted may no longer serve you, so it's time to explore the root causes, understand yourself better, and develop your true self. I work primarily from a psychodynamic perspective, which explores early childhood experiences, patterns, and emotions and how these are impacting your life. I also integrate other approaches to therapy, for example, CBT and Somatic/Embodiment, depending on what you might need.
