About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I mainly work with adults and enjoy doing so with people from all backgrounds and orientations. I believe that all humans appreciate understanding, kindness and connection and wish to avoid suffering and move towards greater well-being. And even if we do not always know how or have the supportive conditions to help us do so, when those conditions are put in place, then movement towards greater well-being will naturally occur. A supportive therapeutic relationship can contribute significantly towards this happening.

I believe that ultimately you are the expert on you
, however I provide an open, kind, aware space that is accepting, empathic, safe and confidential to help you explore your life situation and yourself. Helping you bring more awareness, clarity and kindness to your experience, we can then explore what choices and options there are regarding how you relate to your inner and outer worlds, and then see what strategies you can use to help implement those choices in a way that is beneficial to you in your life.

My past experience, integrative training and continuing professional development, provide me with the flexibility to draw on a number of theories and approaches including, Person Centred, Relational, Existential, Psychodynamic, Cognitive, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Based Approaches, to match what best serves you.

So, whether you are looking to make defined and definite changes in your life or are less clear about your current experience and would like a more open exploration, the style, structure and pace of the sessions follows your needs.

I also provide Clinical Supervision from an Integrative perspective for individuals and groups.

If you have any questions or you would like to make an inquiry, then please feel free to get in touch as I will be happy to speak with you.

Practice description

I work out of a professional Counselling and Therapy Centre in Gillingham, St. Barnabas House www.stbarnabashouse.co.uk. The centre offers a quiet, calm, comfortable atmosphere and is easily accessible by car (with parking close by), bus or train and has wheelchair access and rooms on the ground floor.

I also have access to a therapy room at the Quaker Meeting House in Rochester. The Meeting House has a peaceful atmosphere and is easily accessible by car (with parking close by), bus or train and has wheelchair access.

If you are unable to physically attend in-person or it isn't convenient to do so, I also offer remote sessions online via secure video call and over the phone, although I prefer that we can see each other in-person or via video where possible.

Get in Touch

You can contact me by email or phone by using the contact details on this page and share a little about what it is you are finding difficult and what support you feel you need. I will reply and get back to you, usually within 24 hours on a weekday, via email or we can arrange an informal chat if you prefer, to see what the next step might be.

My first session

Our first session will give us an opportunity to get to know each other a little, find out more about your needs, what has brought you to therapy and what it is you would like us to initially look at together.

If you have had therapy before, then I would be interested to hear about your past experience, what went well or not so well, for example.

We would also talk over our working agreement, looking at things like confidentiality, ideas and expectations of therapy and practical considerations like how often we plan to meet and when, for example.

​There is no need for you to share everything all at once, anything you are uncomfortable about sharing or discuss anything you don't want to. As a therapist grounded in a person centred approach, I take your lead in terms of what you want to look at and where you want to go. You are invited to share your experience and give feedback about the process whenever you choose to and during times when we review how we feel the work we are doing together is going.

Completing your first session of therapy is a personal achievement, as the first step can often be the most difficult but its one many people have made before and thanked them self for later. So, if you are reading this, then I encourage you to make that first step for yourself and we can see what the next step might be together.

About me and my therapy practice

Clinical Supervision

I have a Level 6 Diploma in Individual and Group Supervision and have been providing supervision since 2015. I offer supervision to Counsellors and Psychotherapists, as well as individuals and staffing bodies in organisations who's work either requires or would benefit from the support and holding space of the group supervision process.

I see supervision as a space where peers come together to openly explore work in a way that helps support your professional and ethical integrity as well as your personal and professional growth and development. The overall aim is to enable you to be of most benefit to your clients within the contexts being worked with, best you can, following your preferred model of orientation. I really enjoy the privilege of working with and supporting peers in this way.

I use a number of integrated supervision models to help guide us in this process and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework and the guidance in the BACP Supervision Competence Framework.

My Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling had a Humanistic, Person Centred, Relational base and also gave consideration to Psychodynamic, Cognitive and Existential models. I am also trained in Mindfulness and therefore emphasise embodied presence and the felt-sense in my work, as well as the methods of mindfulness which can help individuals meet a range of difficulties, including anxiety and depression for example, with more insight and compassion.

I currently work with adults in full time private practice, as well as run workshops and courses in mindfulness and mental health. In the past I worked with students in an FE college and addicts in a drug and alcohol service within HM's Prisons.

For organisations, supervision can happen in the workplace or via video call.

My first session

Our first Supervision session allows us to get to know a little about each other.  Find out more about each other's background, training, experience, current work and case load and particular theoretical orientations.

It will also include a period of defining our working agreement, including any practicalities, frequency of supervision and mutual expectations, for example.

We will then move onto your client work or begin to focus on that in our next Supervision session together.
