About me and my therapy practice
I specialise in helping adults heal, recover and reclaim life after trauma; releasing them from feeling hostage to what happened and finding balance and contentment without having to rely on medication.
Whatever your experience and whether your trauma is reported or not, recent or historical, you've come to the right place!
• Have you been affected by domestic abuse, childhood abuse, bullying etc?
• Have you witnessed something distressing or are you the direct victim?
• Is your trauma the result of a single event or ongoing circumstances?
• Maybe you have been traumatised by something others deem insignificant but the impact on you is anything but
Flashbacks, nightmares, fear, isolation, depression, anxiety, anger, worthlessness, powerlessness etc are commonplace as are physical symptoms such as racing heart, trembling limbs, poor concentration, churning stomach. Not to mention hypervigilance, avoiding places/people and safety seeking rituals such as continually checking locks to ease our anxiety. Exhausting!
Imagine now a world in which you feel in control of your trauma responses rather than fearing them, a world in which you have learned to respond rather than react from a place of fear. Well, the good news is that world is within your reach. With my specific training and experience you can rest assured you are working with someone who has an in depth understanding of the issues and complexities that trauma brings.
I am proud to say I have successfully worked clients, just like you; educating, supporting, and empowering them as they travel the road to recovery and a brighter 'new normal'. I’d like to start helping you to reclaim your life now so go ahead, drop me a line and take the first step of your recovery today.
My private practice is located on the outskirts of Sittingbourne and just a few short miles from Maidstone. Being situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the counselling room offers far reaching country views and provides a haven of peace and tranquility - the perfect antidote to the stresses and strains you may be dealing with.
I also offer counselling online and 3yrs ago completed a Diploma specific to this way of working so you can feel confident you are working with someone experienced and who understands the additional considerations and complexities that working online can bring rather than having just 'switched to Zoom' due to Corona virus.
My first session
Our initial consultation will involve discussing your presenting issue and exploring what you hope to achieve from your counselling sessions. This gives us your goals for therapy ensuring you get best value from your investment in yourself.
Please note there is no obligation to continue with sessions after the consultation if for example we did not feel comfortable or perhaps I felt an alternative therapist would be more suitable for your specific requirements in which case I would signpost you on.
