About me and my therapy practice
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
I understand how hard it is to reach out for professional help and admire your courage in taking this first step. Should you choose to work with me, I will support you in your journey towards change and growth.
I’m here to help you find ways to gain balance in your life, build resilience and improve relationships – with yourself, your past and those around you. I offer warmth, kindness, strength and understanding in a secure space that feels safe to talk. I will help you develop new strategies and draw on current resources to find effective solutions.
I believe that effective counselling stems from a trusting relationship, where you have the courage to share, with honesty and vulnerability and I have the desire to listen, with compassion and empathy.
Counselling is not about telling you what to do; nor is it is a conversation with friends or family. I understand the value of being able to speak with someone independent, when you do not feel able to share with loved ones.
Are you struggling with stress, anxiety, anger, low moods or maybe a mix of emotions that have become overwhelming?
It may be that you are experiencing grief, loss, panic, ruminating thoughts or struggling with sleep.
Sometimes, relationship issues, work pressure, changes in circumstances and life, in general, seem unbearable.
Are you looking for space and time to discuss your worries with someone independent, professional and caring?
I will listen to you, with non-judgement, kindness, empathy and validation. Together, we can build a relationship of trust and work side by side to explore ways to find balance, emotional stability and build resilience.
I offer short term therapy, focusing on immediate solutions or longer-term work, where you can explore in more depth.
I am trained, experienced and able to provide counselling that is professional, ethical and effective with empathy and non-judgement.
I provide in-person, online or telephone counselling for adults 18+ in a safe and confidential space.
As an accredited member of the BACP, I work within their ethical framework and have regular Supervision, to support my practice.
My desire to help others has led me to work for a charitable counselling agency and to volunteer at The Hospice in the Weald, working with varying ages and presenting issues.
My training in Transactional Analysis enables me to understand how previous experiences are affecting you now and we can work, together, to change repeating patterns and improve communication skills to help you reach your full potential.
I have trained in Gender, Sexual and Relationship Diversity, this means that when I work with you, I am informed of the significance of these in your life and my practice is inclusive and accepting.
My practice is based at Salomons Estate in Southborough, which offers free parking close to a stunning Victorian mansion set in 36 acres of rolling gardens, parkland and woods, convenient for Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and surrounding areas and I can meet, in person with you here. Perhaps you may want to extend your session to take some personal time to enjoy the grounds or a coffee in the lounge.
My first session
We can start to get to know each other through a free 20-minute telephone call. If you decide to continue, we will meet for a paid assessment, which will give you the opportunity to ask any further questions and I can further understand your needs.
