About me and my therapy practice
I am a BACP registered psychotherapist situated in Tunbridge Wells. I have a Masters in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling, 3 years of clinical mental health experience and 16 years of oncology nursing.
Taking the first step and making initial contact can be difficult. I understand that the thought of sharing painful experiences, fears and expectations may feel daunting, but therapy provides a confidential, warm and supportive space, where you can feel listened to and explore what is going on without judgment.
As an integrative therapist, I combine different theoretical approaches (humanistic, cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic) to enable a flexible and individual approach to working with each client’s individual needs and goals. I offer both short and long term therapy, depending on each client’s needs and expectations of therapy.
You may be considering therapy for various reasons; relationship issues, trauma, bereavement, anxiety, stress, or you may just feel stuck and unable to move forward in life. Therapy can help to unpack your difficulties, gain clarity on a situation and offer a new perspective. My role is to facilitate a better understanding of the choices, motivations and patterns of behaviour that impact on your life. I believe you are the expert on yourself and so my approach is to work together to explore your difficulties and find some resolution. This can include building emotional resilience, making changes in your life or coming to terms with a difficult situation.
My qualifications include;
MA Integrative counselling and Psychotherapy (Roehampton University) 2018
Certificate in Counselling Psychology (City University) 2014
BSc (Hons) Human Sciences and Nursing 1994
