About me and my therapy practice

I will work to establish a connection, a correlation between us. That is the fundament of my therapy, so I offer a free 15-20 minute assessment for both of us to see how well we work together. I will then work at your pace, listening rather than bombarding you with questions, so that we can both make sense of the issues you bring to the work.

I have also been working as a counsellor for young people since 2018, and am experienced in making a therapeutic connection with a young person who may find the environment unusual. I do this through talking but also through art, sport or fun.

I have a Certificate in Adoption Counselling (2023) from Bernardo's, enabling me to work with adoptees, adopters, birth family or adoption workers.

I have completed Continuing Professional Development from BACP in working with autistic clients.

Practice description

I have a private room away from the street in my home in Ramsgate.
