My practice in Tonbridge is available open on Mondays and Tuesdays from 9am with the last appointment at 4pm.

About me and my therapy practice

I am empathetic, I am curious about who you are and I will also challenge you to explore and be curious about yourself.

Therapy can be enlightening, life changing and tough so I encourage you find a therapist who you want to share yourself with.

The modality of counselling I practice is Transactional Analysis and I incorporate the 3 fundamental philosophies of TA:

-People are OK.  This means that everyone has worth, value an dignity.  I accept myself as me and I accept  you as you.

-Everyone has the capacity to think and and therefore, we can all take responsibility to decide what we want from life.

-Each of us is responsible for our own feelings and behaviour and we can make decisions.  Therefore, we can decide to change.

I often include psycho-education in my sessions which can be beneficial in helping you understand why you might think, feel and do the things you do.

When appropriate and with your consent, I like to work creatively; drawing diagrams, using objects, pictures, timelines, genograms and other tools to help clients explore and express themselves.

Having a safe, confidential and regular space to be listened to, where you can talk freely, without judgement and without shame can be disconcerting and liberating too.

I am also an Approved Therapist with Anxiety UK.

Practice description

My practice is located in a dedicated, private counselling room above the YMCA furniture store in Tonbridge where there is ample parking.

Sessions last 50 minutes and take place at the same time and, initially, every week.

After 4-6 weeks we have a short review where we discuss the direction of therapy, the frequency of sessions and anticipated total number of sessions needed.  This is reviewed again at regular intervals.

I also work from my home in Faversham from Wednesday to Saturday.

My first session

This is an opportunity for you to tell your story and talk about what has brought you to counselling, what you would like to get out of therapy and your expectations.  I shall also answer any questions you may have.

The first session is about 10 minutes longer than usual so that we can cover a bit of admin to include our therapy contract, safeguarding, confidentiality and how therapy works. 

I shall listen and question to clarify and gain the necessary information to complete an assessment about your situation and make sure I am understanding you and that you feel understood.

It is when we begin to establish our therapeutic relationship and make sure we can work with one another.

What I can help with

Abuse, Addictions, Anger management, Anxiety, Bereavement, Child related issues, Depression, Health related issues, Loss, Obsessions, OCD, Phobias, Redundancy, Relationships, Self esteem, Self-harm, Stress, Work related issues

Clients I work with

Adults, Children, Couples, Older adults, Young people

How I deliver therapy
