I specialise in treating anxiety and stress in young people.
BEING YOUNG IS NOT EASY. From panic attacks, to a bad habit of browsing Instagram and Tinder at 4am - I specialise in helping young people (age 15 to 25) build a healthier day-to-day life by talking about their lives, problems and thoughts. Do any of these statements describe you: "My coursework is just too much, I feel miserable, money problems, I lost someone I loved, I worry my girlfriend is cheating, I'm putting on weight, I suffer bad anxiety in normal situations, I'm having panic attacks, I need to understand myself right and get better now."

EMDR is a form of Psychotherapy used in the treatment of Trauma and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and is also used with other issues including Anxiety, Depression and Phobias with adults and children.
Therapy can be a catalyst for change helping us to regain a sense of control in our lives and begin to live life more towards our true potential. I have experience of working with a wide range of issues that impact on clients' wellbeing, offering support, empathy and a safe space to share their concerns. I work with individuals, couples, families, children, young people on short and long-term contracts in Canterbury and Waltham. I use different approaches and techniques that are tailored to clients' needs, believing that we are all individual and that ‘one size does not fit all’. I have also lived and worked extensively overseas.

You may be experiencing increased stress or anxiety. Your work or studies may have been more demanding. Your relationships with your partner, family or friends may have suffered or you feel sad, lonely or isolated. Do you feel you want to make sense of things or find a way to manage? Perhaps you realise that you want to make some changes in your life. Counselling is an amazing and beneficial process. I hope that I can support and be with you on this journey.

Working as a Jungian Psychotherapist, Integrative Counsellor, healer and Reiki Master, and Thought Field Therapist means I work holistically. Every aspect of you is included in therapy - mental, physical, emotional, and at the soul level. I believe we do contain everything we need to know - whether we carry that consciously or unconsciously. When we get in touch with both conscious and unconscious motives and drivers, and how they manifest as behaviours, we are able to make choices and to be more of our true selves. I have run my private practice for 8 years & am a member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy.

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.

I can help clients with the strong feelings and physical changes linked to the various life stages they go through, as well as issues around gender and identity, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, poor self-esteem, bullying, loss of motivation, exam/work stress, and eating disorders.
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.
