About me and my therapy practice

Therapy works best when it's a collaborative process. You want to affect some change in your life and I want to work with you to enable you to discover that change. 

I am a Counsellor/Psychotherapist and hold a Diploma in Integrative Counselling, which means that I use different counselling models and tailor them to meet your personal needs. 

As a Accredited Member of the BACP this gives you the assurance that I will act ethically, professionally & with integrity. I am experienced in working with children, young people & adults in private practice, GP surgeries, prisons, rehabilitation units and schools & colleges. I have full & enhanced DBS (CRB) registration, professional indemnity insurance and regular clinical supervision. 

My practice is based in Kent with locations in Dartford & Longfield. In addition to working privately I offer my counselling services voluntarily through two agencies in the county, as I believe it’s imperative to give something back. I have a genuine passion for the work I do and am committed to being the best I can be for you. Whether you are engaging in therapy for the first time, or returning to explore a new issue, I will work with you and to your agenda. So if talking to a brick wall hasn’t provided any answers yet please contact me:

About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified supervisor and an Accredited BACP Member working with trainee & qualified counsellors.

I believe in providing a supportive space in which you can explore and reflect upon your client work, take some time out for yourself and feel listened to without judgment. 

I will work collaboratively with you to ensure the best outcomes for your clients, and provide an environment based upon mutual trust & transparency to assist your professional growth.


Practice description

In my private therapy practice I have experience working with a variety of presenting issues from adults (individuals & couples), children & young people. 

My clinical theoretical approach is Integrative and this is reflected in how I work as a supervisor, with all my work being underpinned from a person centred perspective. 

I have benefited from some amazing support from supervisors and it’s my endeavour to deliver the same in return. 

My first session

I offer a free, 30 minute session for us to get to know each other and to assess if we are comfortable working together.

I offer face to face, online and telephone supervision.

Supervision sessions vary from 1 to 1.5 hours and their frequency will depend upon your level of experience and clinical case load, all of which we can discuss in our first meeting together. 

Types of therapy

CBT, Gestalt, Integrative, Person centred, Play therapy, Psychodynamic, Transactional analysis

Clients I work with

Adults, Children, Couples, Older adults, Trainee, Young people
