About me and my therapy practice

As an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, I offer a safe, non-judgemental place where you can make sense of where you are, find solutions, and work out a way to move more comfortably into your future, and build the life you want to live.

I am an Integrative Therapist. This enables me to draw on a range of approaches to tailor the therapy to each individual client. I use the therapeutic relationship with you to explore what troubles you, and to change behavioural patterns and heal past trauma. This way of working enables us to transform our own processes, as well as how we relate with others, and find emotional freedom.

I have extensive experience of working, in both private and community NHS settings, with anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, sadness, trauma, relationship and family difficulties, childhood relational trauma, issues of identity, sense of self, self-esteem and self-compassion, obsessional thinking and loss and bereavement.

I use Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Attachment Based Psychotherapy, Body Psychotherapy and CBT and Mindfulness techniques. In line with Humanistic Principles I recognise, value and work with the whole person, in the belief that each person contains within them the potential for growth and transformation, which I facilitate by creating a nurturing, supportive therapeutic environment. I believe in the healing power of compassion.

As a registered member of the BACP, I abide by the principles of their Ethical Framework. My practice is a short walk from Folkestone West station, with free parking. Confidential messages can be left on the phone number provided, or you can email me. I offer a free brief phone consultation before meeting. I am also happy for you to begin to tell me what brings you to therapy when we meet.
