About me and my therapy practice

I am a Masters-qualified, BACP-registered integrative Therapeutic Counsellor offering sessions to adults and young people in Bexley, Kent.

I am interested in your personal growth and self-awareness, aiming towards a greater understanding of your difficulties and more compassion for yourself. I am warm, non-judgemental, professional and adhere to a strict ethical code of conduct.

When difficulties feel too overwhelming, some people feel that therapy is an effective way for them to acknowledge and appreciate what often feels out of control in their lives. Taking time to dissect your difficulties and to understand more about yourself can make some kind of solution, resolution or recovery seem more achievable.

Talking can help. Talking can encourage the processing of our emotions – we can really start to work out what is wrong and what could be thought about in a different way. Counselling can help you to expand your perspectives and to consider alternatives, which can encourage greater acceptance of yourself and compassion towards yourself.

Contacting a counsellor for the first time may feel like a massive step. You may be feeling embarrassed, or you may believe that your difficulties are not 'serious' enough and you would be wasting my time. ​

This is not the case. Every experience throughout our lives shapes us in different ways, perhaps ways we have not understood or fully processed yet. I am happy to work on whatever feels important to you. We will work at your pace, taking time to understand your difficulties fully.

Being honest and open takes courage, but facing your emotions and perhaps understanding where they have come from helps you to accept them and to put them into perspective, to enable you to manage them better and live your life more fully.
