About me and my therapy practice
Sometimes life can be overwhelming and isolating, especially in these challenging times. As a qualified and insured Counsellor with BACP, I provide a safe space and humanistic approach to therapy to help you express your emotions, without judgement.
I listen, respect, and accept you are an individual and believe that talking through life’s challenges with a trained, impartial third party, who has your best interests at heart, can help you arrive at a sense of clarity. This enabling you to either change, accept or learn to cope with your situation, promoting wellbeing and help you to reach your full potential.
I run my counselling service from my Rose Cottage Counselling Room which is nestled away in a calm and rural location within easy reach from Faversham and Canterbury, well-lit and with free parking.
My person-centred approach lends itself best to face-to-face counselling to help you gain a better understanding of your thought processes and feelings. However, I can also offer online sessions should you prefer to remain in the comfort of their own home.
I recognize the importance of having a strong, collaborative and trusting relationship between client and counsellor and work in accordance to the BACP Ethical Framework and code of Ethics to ensure safe and confidential practice for both of us.
My experienced comes from working with long term open-ended clients as well as shorter more focus solution based sessions, and take a tailored approach as to which works best for you.
I have been very fortunate to work within the charity sector at Mid Kent Mind offering long term counselling to a variety of ages and supporting clients to work through a variety of issues.
I also have experience and currently enjoy working with young adults and staff members in a college environment.
My trained approach is person-centered counselling which means I am non-judgmental and non-directive. I believe we all have our own unique perspective and hope to empower you to make the decisions you feel fit for you.
A variety of learnt theories also work well when integrated with this approach.
We can work through our sessions together, in a safe and supported environment, at your pace and your agenda, taking small steps toward an ultimate outcome, to become the best version of your true self.
My first session
I understand it can be difficult to start the counselling process, especially when you are unfamiliar with the counsellor, this can be a daunting experience.
It is often hard to open up for the first time, and feeling comfortable with a therapist is so important to allow good work to happen.
For this reason, please feel free to call, text or email me for a confidential, no obligation discussion.
