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. 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 use several different types of therapy, enabling me to have various approaches to suit different issues.
I currently work with adults and children in one to one sessions or groups in schools in Kent (with Kent Counselling for Schools) and within my private practice in Sevenoaks. I also have experience in working at Family Matters (UK Charity for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse), Place2Be and Eden Counselling in both primary and secondary schools and at a GP Practice.
I work with adults and young people in many settings. Therapy sessions available are either in the comfort of the counselling room or outdoors with walk and talk therapy.
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.
It is counselling in motion, and it works because it is often more dynamic than a traditional indoor session. If you have felt stuck in therapy in the past, being physically active helps release some tensions and stimulates new thoughts and ideas. It is a metaphor for moving forward.
