About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and a Clinical Supervisor. I am a Accredited Professional Registrant (MNCS Prof Accred) with the National Counselling Society. I am also a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapist). As well as being a member of the BACP, I have also passed the bacp's enhanced level certificate of proficiency. I hold a Specialist Certificate in Clinical Supervision with an emphasis on supervision of the substance abuse counsellor.

I have regular supervision with a registered supervisor and hold a current Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service Certificate (DBS) and indemnity insurance. I am an Approved CPCAB (Counselling And Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body) tutor, also a EFT Master Practitioner, and an Accredited Infant loss Practitioner. I work with Children, Young People and Adults.

I am a experienced school Counsellor working with primary and secondary schools, Medway youth services, the charity sector, and in partnership with the local authority, all of which have been located in deprived areas. I work for EAP providers, supporting mental health in the workplace.

I am experienced in working with disabled people and those with learning difficulties, ADHD and ASD, etc. I also work closely with Military families. I have a particular interest in complex mental health, as it relates to physical and social wellbeing. I work with PTSD, Bipolar, emotional regulation disorder, Schizophrenia and Borderline personality disorders to name a few.

I am a creative therapist and alongside talking therapies I also use many creative tools, which include play therapy, music, drama, art and sand trays etc. I use visualisation and Mindfulness-based techniques and draw from many modalities, including Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Psychosynthesis and CBT to name a few. I also use EFT (emotional freedom technique)
