About me and my therapy practice

Life can be incredibly overwhelming and frustrating at times, and can lead to us feeling thoroughly burnt out - from pressures at home, at work, or from life in general.

Maybe you're here because you're longing for a life where you feel connected, fulfilled and understood, instead of feeling resentful and pulled in different directions.

Perhaps you're feeling overloaded or trapped by home, family or work life. You might feel like you're not the person you used to be, or want to be. What if you could put some healthier boundaries in place?

Or maybe you're feeling isolated, anxious or disillusioned with life after the pandemic, for example. Being listened to in a non-judgmental way can be extremely powerful when these kind of feelings take root.

I hold counselling sessions in accessible outdoor spaces (parks, woodlands, countryside) around Tonbridge & Tunbridge Wells in Kent. Daily life can feel pressured and stifling, and being in nature is proven to relax an overworked brain and calm our nervous system. We can look to make that load that you're carrying feel a bit lighter, and work towards building a life that's more on your terms.

Practice description

My counselling style is collaborative, warm, hopeful and pragmatic. I'm not going to give clumsy advice or dictate to you how to fix things. I'm here to allow you the time and space to make sense of your world right now. Starting counselling can seem daunting but it can also be life-changing, helping you to understand and build on your strengths that have helped you get this far, in spite of everything.

Maybe you'd rather brief therapy, or something more open-ended. We can review as we go.

Would you like to get in touch?

If you would like to have a discussion about counselling sessions, then please send me a message or call me. We can arrange a short phone call at a time convenient to you, to look at what you'd hope to achieve from counselling, and what our sessions together might look like moving forward.

Further background on my training and experience

My core counselling training can be described as person-centred and integrative. In a nutshell, that means that I believe that you've ultimately got the answers within yourself. I might offer up elements of different approaches (such as solution-focused therapy) to help you explore your issues, increase in confidence and work out your options.

Some further information about me:

  • Qualified counsellor since 2010
  • 10+ years experience working in counselling, advocacy, parental support and youth outreach roles, mainly in the charity sector. I have also provided counselling within community, NHS and education settings
  • Delivered individual and group support around burnout and self-advocacy
  • Undertaken specialist training both in delivering counselling outdoors and online.

My first session

Before our first session outdoors, we'll have a short phone call to run through some practical considerations and discuss how we'll make sure we maintain your privacy in an outside space. We'll choose a meeting point and, if you have mobility needs, we can talk those over and make a plan that works well for you.

When we meet on the day, you can choose our walking pace and we can do a mixture of walking and sitting, or do the whole session simply sat outdoors.

You might not always know what to talk about and that's completely fine. I'm here to provide you with a pocket of time in your busy life that is yours, to use how you need.

So if you feel like we might be a good fit, please get in touch. We can arrange our quick free-of-charge phone call, and go from there.
