About me and my therapy practice

Having been qualified for nearly 20 years I have grown my tool box of skills to be able to adapt my way of working to what suits you best.  I believe that your experience of our relationship is the key part of the work that we will do together.  I am able to work using a range of skills including CBT and Psychodynamic.  

I aim to offer all of my clients a safe and confidential space where you can talk about what you want to talk about, after all this is your time.

I work with adults in a individual, group or family setting and will taylor my approach to best suit your needs.

I have worked in a variety of settings from Community based substance misuse services, in-patient Rehab to NHS primary care.  

Practice description

I work from my home in Otford, but am also able to offer session via Zoom/Skype.

My initial training was in Psychodynamic counselling but I have since had training in other ways of working and now aim to adapt my skills to suit you.  I draw on the use of CBT and person-centred therapy in my work when appropriate.  

I feel (& have experienced through my own therapy) that the relationship we will build is the most important part of the work.  Through this we can explore and make changes to areas of your life you feel unhappy or dissatisfied with.  

My first session

The first session is an opportunity for us to establish if we can work together and if my way of working suits your needs.  

Above all it is vital that you feel comfortable with me.  Having had counselling myself I understand how daunting the first session can feel.  

You can read more about the first session on the blog on my website.
