About me and my therapy practice
My approach is to encourage clients to closely examine their past in order to expose the lasting effects of formative experiences that may be hiding in their unconscious mind, potentially having an unhelpful impact upon them and their relationships in the present.
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, with a deep appreciation for the spiritual dimension of life, and a firmly embedded belief in the importance of our personal story being told and genuinely listened to as we grapple for life’s meaning.
I have spent many years working with and alongside older people, both in community development and through the work of a national older people’s charity. This has given me valuable insights into living in later life, including an understanding that depression and anxiety are not an inevitable part of getting older, but conditions which can be treated by talking therapy just as effectively as they can be for an adult of any age.
Developing a strong working alliance with you as my client is an integral and essential factor towards you being able to benefit from therapy. This is why providing a safe, confidential environment and forming a trusting, respectful, non-judgmental relationship with you is key.
I work with adult clients from an office in Headcorn which is well placed to serve the immediate community, as well as surrounding villages and towns. Depending on the circumstances, I am also willing to work with a client in their own home. Either way, I would be pleased and privileged to work with you on an open-ended or fixed-term basis.
I would be pleased for you to contact me to arrange an initial session in which for you to describe the challenges you face, and for us to decide between us whether counselling is right for you, and whether we will be able to work effectively together.
