I offer an integrative approach which draws from a range of counselling theories, to suite the clients specific needs and preferences; including psychodynamic theory, CBT, systemic approaches and issues of spiritual formation.
I hold a BA(Hons) in integrative relational counselling and a registered member of BACP. I have a number of years of experience working in the charity and private sector, supporting clients with a wide range of emotional issues. ​ At the heart of my counselling practice is the aim to provide a space where you can come to breathe, to be, and find unconditional acceptance, positive reflection and discover alternative narratives and perspectives for yourself. A relationship that enables that to occur, allows for the development of self-awareness, self- acceptance, hope and healing.

A fully qualified Integrative Psychotherapist and Psychodynamic Counsellor, I have worked in a variety of settings (NHS, Charity and Higher Education Sectors) with clients from all walks of life.
Do you feel overwhelmed in social situations, worrying how others perceive you? Are you having trouble sleeping or waking up in the middle of the night with your heart racing? Or perhaps on some days it is a real challenge to wake up and find the motivation to get out of bed, wondering ‘what’s the point?’ Sometimes, it might be difficult to share your thoughts and feelings with your family and friends. I aim to offer you a safe, confidential space to explore what is on your mind.

My integrative approach includes the warmth of the person-centred relationship, the depth of the psychodynamic therapies, and the pragmatic solution focus of CBT, depending on what you need.
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.

As a Relate Trained Counsellor, I particularly draw on the Systemic and Psychodynamic Theoretical Perspectives but also understand the importance of being client led, listening to the family scripts and narratives, with a person-centred focus.
I am very aware that walking through a Counsellor's door and coming to counselling is a very brave decision to make. It is a journey that can be a difficult and reflective one but hopefully also an exciting and rewarding one. I will support you in your journey with kindness, integrity, and understanding and always ensure you feel supported and safe.

During these difficult times, when we are isolated within ourselves, it is natural to feel stressed, anxious and/or depressed or low in mood. Now more than ever it is important for us to look after our mental health, so that we can all emerge from this period with more self-awareness, and with a better level of psychological balance. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, it is important to recognise your struggle and give it credence. Health anxiety, depression and insomnia may be writhe, but I am here to provide a treatment, tools and strategies that have a proven track record of recovery.

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 a talking therapy to work through issues causing you distress in your life. Perhaps your difficulties are clear to you. I work with anxiety, depression, panic attacks, bereavement, trauma, abuse and relationship difficulties. Alternatively, it be difficult to identify a particular thing and you feel a general sense of being lost and lacking direction. The therapeutic relationship holds the potential for healing and transformation. Links from your past experiences and how they may affect the way you live in the present can enable change to enable you to move forward making better decisions for yourself.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Canterbury, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
