About me and my therapy practice

I understand that it can take a great deal of courage to seek therapy and make that initial contact. This is why I offer a sensitive, non-judgmental and empathic attitude from the outset. I appreciate that there are many reasons why you might be seeking counselling. You might be suffering from anxiety, depression, loss, or bereavement or dealing with problems at work, socially or with family. Maybe your issues are due to more recent events. Alternatively, they may stretch far back to past abuse, trauma, or narcissistic control. I provide therapy for those suffering from troubling feelings and thoughts. There maybe social anxiety, low self-esteem, feelings of isolation, exclusion, and loneliness, or a sense of being overwhelmed, confused or numb. I also see clients with the particular challenges associated with neurodivergence including dyslexia, autism (ASD) and ADHD.

As a face-to-face and online integrative counsellor and psychotherapist I have provided therapy for a range of issues both big and small over the long and short term. I call on a variety of approaches. These include the person-centred, existential, cognitive, psychodynamic, and relational approaches. This integrative counselling enables me to be very adaptable and flexible to the unique problems you might be facing.

I am mindful that therapy can feel scary, intimidating and overwhelming. Consequently, I take great care to go at a pace that is right for you. I always endeavour to empower you to feel safe, secure and supported.

I qualified with distinction from Inter-Psyche Training Centre in Dartford which is affiliated to the Kent and Medway NHS Trust Foundation. This is a degree level 6 qualification. I am currently working towards BACP accreditation. I have a fully enhanced DBS check. Details of my privacy policy, how I secure and how long I hold data can be found on my website.

Practice description

I am happy to discuss your goals for therapy, check availability and to answer any questions you might have over the telephone or online. Subsequent sessions are 50 minutes duration and are usually one week apart.

My first session

The first session is an opportunity to get an overview and have our first face-to-face meeting. I briefly explain the 'client-counsellor agreement' which is concerned with the administration of the sessions and clarifies the expectations concerning the way we will work together. I also explain issues concerning confidentiality. After we have done this it can be helpful to get an appraisal of what has brought you to counselling and what you might hope to get out of it. It is a 'no pressure' session where we simply begin the journey forward together.

About me and my therapy practice

As a couples and relationships counselling, I offer therapy for those who may be facing seemly irreconcilable conflict and arguments. There may be familiar repeated cycles of harmful words and behaviours. You may be suffering from the impact of a betrayal. Alternatively, you may be suffering from a loss or have come to a difficult transition in life and are not sure how to work through it. Maybe, you feel as though you are in a controlling or narcissistic relationship and don't know how to move forward.

As an integrative couples and relationships counsellor I provide face-to-face therapy for a range of issues and look to work over the short term (ideally 12 weeks) but am flexible on this. I take a non-judgmental approach which is to say that I will listen to all parties with an open and equitable attitude. I am also happy to work with relationships that are, or wish to be other than monogamous or heteronormative.

Feel free to contact me and let me know what your goals for therapy are. What are the problems you are facing? How are these problems impacting your life? When did things start going wrong? If you have questions or want to check availability, we can arrange to discuss things further over the telephone or zoom prior to booking a session. 

Practice description

Before the first couples counselling session, I will send out some information about what to expect. It can be quite nerve-racking starting couples counselling, so I look to provide reassurance that I will contain and support all parties in equal measure. I will also ask you to provide some information ahead of the first session.

I encourage relationships to complete 6 sessions at which point we can do a review and decide whether to extend to 12 sessions. 

I don't follow a formula but might expect to work on strategies to help improve communication, resolve and manage intense conflict, develop insights into how previous relationships from childhood onwards are impacting your relationship now and what to do about it, help reframe and negotiate differences in attitudes to relationship needs and expectations, and look at challenges that may be impacting both desires for intimacy and for wanting separateness within the relationship.

My first session

The first session differs from subsequent sessions. I look to get an overview of the relationship and ask a few questions about personal histories. Subsequently sessions are less formal and less directive.

What I can help with

Anger management, Pregnancy related issues, Redundancy, Relationships, Sex-related issues, Stress, Work related issues

Types of therapy

Behavioural, Brief therapy, Cognitive, Existential, Family therapy, Humanistic, Integrative, Person centred, Psychodynamic, Relational, Solution focused brief therapy, Systemic, Transactional analysis

Clients I work with

Adults, Couples, Families, Groups, Older adults

How I deliver therapy
