About me and my therapy practice

Hello and welcome,

Please know that seeking help is a sign of strength. I am here to support you and walk alongside you on your journey in achieving a more peaceful, fulfilling, meaningful and balanced life.

I am a BACP Registered Counsellor, deeply committed to supporting my clients in their journey to overcome emotional challenges, reduce emotional suffering, increase self-awareness and enhance their overall well-being.

My counselling services are available through in-person, online or telephone sessions. I also offer "Walk and Talk" therapy sessions in and around Tunbridge Wells.

I work with adults and welcome clients from diverse backgrounds, respecting cultural and individual differences and offering a non-judgemental and welcoming environment.

I have experience of providing support to patients and carers facing end-of-life issues and to bereaved families, helping my clients to navigate and express complex emotions related to grief and loss. Furthermore, I have worked with the charity MIND where I have supported clients with a wide array of complex mental health concerns.

I offer support with a wide range of emotional and psychological issues, including:

• Grief and loss

• Stress

• Anxiety and Depression

• Relationships and Friendships issues

• Identity and self-exploration for personal growth and building resilience

• Neurodiversity

• Life purpose and meaning

I offer short-them and long-term therapy.

I'm committed to continual professional development and adhere to the ethical standards of the BACP, ensuring you receive the highest quality of care.

Practice description

Values and Philosophy:

My guiding principles centre around the belief that every human being possesses the capacity for positive change and personal growth and is “good enough”. My practice is grounded in empathy, respect, and a commitment to maintaining the confidentiality and privacy of my clients.

Approach to Counselling:

My approach to counselling is deeply rooted in Humanistic Integrative Counselling and has a strong emphasis on a client-centred and personalised approach. I specialize in Person-Centered, Gestalt, and Existential therapies, which means I create a safe, empathetic and non-judgemental environment for you to explore your feelings, thoughts, and experiences. I genuinely believe that every human being has the capacity for positive change, self-awareness and personal growth. I adapt therapy to the unique needs and preferences of my clients while developing a trusting and empathetic client-therapist relationship.

Creative Counselling:

In addition to traditional therapeutic approaches, I offer creative counselling techniques such as using art, writing, sand tray or visualisation and other creative mediums to help my clients express and explore their emotions and thoughts. Creative counselling offers self-discovery and deep self-awareness, emotional expression, and healing, providing a unique and holistic approach to therapy.

Walk and Talk Therapy:

These outdoor sessions allow my clients to explore their thoughts and emotions while engaging in physical activity outdoors. As a former Forest School practitioner, I believe that spending time outdoors and in nature is beneficial for our mental health and overall well-being. It's an excellent option for those who find nature and movement enjoyable and conducive to self-exploration and growth as well as those who may find the indoor talking therapy sessions too formal and intense or those who may find being in indoor spaces difficult.
