About me and my therapy practice

Your future depends on what you do in the present........... 

Counselling offers you a safe, confidential, non-judgmental and caring space to explore issues, thoughts, emotions and feelings that have come about as a result of various life events. While we cannot change difficult situations of the past we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life.

My aim is to help you understand what may be going on in your life, look at what you might like to change and empower you to do so. Being heard, understood and valued by another person can help to unlock our potential to change and grow. It can feel good to be free of the burdens that you originally came in to counselling to address.

As an integrative counsellor I am able to tailor my approach drawing on different elements of specific therapies such as person-centred, psychodynamic and CBT. As all people are unique the therapy will be tailored to suit your personality and preferences.

I run a private practice in Sevenoaks where I see adults and young people. In addition to my private practice I am the Lead Counsellor in a primary and two secondary schools in Kent. This is with Kent Counselling for Schools (KCS) and in this role I work on a 1 -1 basis and with groups.

I have previous experience in working in the NHS at a GP practice, Family Matters (UK Charity for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse), Eden Counselling and Place2Be in both primary and secondary schools.

My key motivation as a counsellor is to see people thrive and live life to the full. I have an enduring hope in the capacity of human beings to change and heal.

Wondering what walk and talk therapy is? Walk and talk therapy is something that I find to be very therapeutic with clients of all ages. Instead of sitting in front of your counsellor in a traditional therapy room, the counselling session takes place outdoors walking side by side.
