About me and my therapy practice

I am a fully qualified counsellor with a humanistic and empathetic approach, deciding to seek counselling is often a huge step and I am there to support and work with you. I have a diploma in therapeutic counselling and have worked for the last four years with a local drop-in cancer centre and have vast experience in working with serious health issues, the impact this has on family and friends and also loss and bereavement. 

Having spent a significant time working in a large corporate environment I have a wide and varied experience. I can help with all types work related issues I understand the professional challenges that arise, work related stress, low self-esteem, redundancy, anxiety and depression as well as being able to help with personal development. 

I have also worked with a local college and am experienced in working with young adults with anxiety, exam stress, panic attacks and low self-esteem.

I offer a safe space where you can bring any concern be yourself and be heard with respect, empathy and understanding.

Practice description

I work in a counselling room in central Tunbridge Wells and this is a warm, comfortable and safe space where I welcome clients with support and without judgement.

Each session will last 50 minutes and I can work either face to face, by phone or virtually. I can work either on short term basis or longer term dependent on client need. 

My first session

I will talk to clients on the telephone prior to our first session as an introduction. 

During our first session, this will be an opportunity for an understanding of the expectations of counselling and what you would like to talk about and get from the sessions or if there is something you just want to talk about in a safe and confidential space. It is important as the client you are comfortable with your surroundings and also to get to know me as we work together.

We will agree in our first session the time of your session that will be the same each week.
