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.

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.

Psychotherapy is a talking therapy with the aim to support you work through issues causing distress in your life. Perhaps the root of the distress is clear to you and may be causing anxiety, depression, panic attacks or relationship difficulties. Sometimes it is not easy to identify a particular problem and you feel a general sense of being lost and lacking direction as if things just aren't quite right. The therapeutic relationship holds the potential for healing and transformation as we work to make links from past experiences and the present day to day situations potentially enabling you to move forward in a different way.

I don't have a typical client. Everyone is unique and complex and if you have found yourself drawn to the idea of counselling I will do my best to build a trusting relationship, offering a safe, non judgemental space and ring-fenced time just for you to talk about the issues you want to bring. I work with adults both short and long term to strive to help you reach the goal you had in mind from it. I have found these reasons can be very diverse, from dealing with past or present events, fears, traumas, anxieties, grief. My aim is to help you get a deeper understanding of yourself and help you bring about the changes you want to see.

Too many people still think they need to "suffer in silence". There's a strongly-held belief, especially among men, that it's not OK to talk about emotions, about problems in relationships, or about those moments when we feel overwhelmed. I've worked with many clients who come to counselling as a last resort, not really believing it can help them. But thousands of people out there have found that talking does make a difference. If you've been wondering whether it could make a difference for you, contact me for an introductory appointment, to see whether counselling is right for you.

Coming to counselling is an adventure! It can be immense fun and incredibly inspirational. It can also be hard and will certainly make you take a good look at yourself! If you want to make changes in your life then counselling is one of the most effective ways to do it... and I will help you along the way, walking alongside you, giving you support. It is a great privilege for me - and I deeply value the vulnerable person (within all of us) that counselling helps to find the courage to reveal. I work with kindness, warmth and respect, and our relationship will become strong - yet I will challenge you - but in a caring and gentle way.

Life can be challenging; navigating relationships and attempting to get our emotional needs met. Sometimes we can have an ongoing feeling of unease or sadness or have specific fears related to facing particular people or situations. We can worry about what other people are thinking about us and what we have said or done. Or we can question who we really are. Often these worries can keep us awake at night, or stop us from doing things we have previously enjoyed or would like to try. We can know in our heart that life could be better but can feel stuck and unable to work out what we need to feel more content and self-accepting.
