About me and my therapy practice

I believe for counselling to work well you need to find a therapist you can connect with on a human to human level, this is referred to as a therapeutic relationship and is built on a strong foundation of trust and rapport between the client and counsellor. Therapy works best when it is a collaborative process. I am a qualified integrative counsellor/ psychotherapist which means I will look at a variety of models and ways in which I can help and support you best. I offer a professional, ethical non-judgmental , safe and confidential space to enable you to explore and gain understanding of the situations that may be affecting or surrounding you. In my own personal counselling career experience I have worked with an array of issues and ages working with colleges and local communities suffering with trauma, personality disorder, abuse, anxiety and depression etc specifically within loss, bereavement and complex grief through my work at a Hospice. As a Counsellor I believe that with the right support and empathy we can all make beneficial changes if they are needed. My sessions are client led where I will try to help you find your own solutions.

Practice description

Most of us will struggle with something at one point in our lives or another, some times this can be an illness or lack of support, others can be triggered by a life changing event, a relationship breakdown, a loss of career, or maybe a bereavement or a past trauma, all of which can lead to us feeling overwhelmed and leave us struggling with day to day tasks. Sometimes we just need a sounding board, someone to listen to help us process and untangle the thoughts and feelings we are experiencing. I myself know how hard this admission and acknowledgment can be and seeking help is not always easy. However it is out there. My Practice is in Dartford, Kent where I offer 121 sessions. Zoom or telephone appointments are also available.

My first session

Our first session will be about trying to establish and build trust and rapport to allow you the safe space and time you require to bring to the session what ever you need to discuss. We will go over some questions and a personal review to help work through and determine your personal needs and goals of therapy. This can help to bring some focus when needed.
