About me and my therapy practice

Are you struggling with anxiety, stress, depression or sadness? Maybe something from your past is holding you back? Have you ever found yourself caught up in the same frustrating spiral, trying to break free from old habits, but somehow end up right back where you started?  You don’t have to face this alone.

As a dedicated and compassionate counsellor I work with adults, children and young people offering a safe space for self-discovery and growth. I have experience working with many different types of emotional and psychological problems.  Whether you’re navigating life’s challenges, seeking personal development or enhancing relationships I am here for you. I can support you in addressing your problems in a positive way by helping you to clarify the issues, explore options, develop strategies and increase your own self-awareness for a more fulfilling life.

I have experience working with different charities and agencies. I continue to work as a specialist therapist with Family Matters where I work with and support survivors of sexual abuse and rape. I have extensive training in this field and work within a trauma informed practice. 

I have many years of experience working with Children in different settings including working as a school counsellor and within the care system. I now work with children and young people from the age of 6 in private practice.

Practice description

I customize my approach and way of working to align with the unique needs of each individual.

I offer flexible hours with day and evening sessions and some weekend availability. Sessions are usually weekly or fortnightly and these do not have to be on the same day or time each week as I work with each individual client’s needs.

My therapy room is in Downswood Maidstone and has good access to parking. Please note that there are 3 steps down in the garden where my cabin is.

 I have a large comfortable therapeutic space that is suitable for both adults and children. It is sound proof for confidential and is fully heated in the winter and has air conditioning for the summer months.

My first session

I understand that searching for a counsellor can be difficult, especially if you are feeling vulnerable or anxious . Finding the right counsellor can be a daunting process, this is why I offer a free 15 minute phone call. This is where you can ask any questions, explore your goals and expectations from counselling and see if we will be able to work together. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is at the heart of the counselling process, so finding the right counsellor is the key to the work and the counselling process. 

In my work with children and young people, I provide a 30-minute free of charge consultation for parents and carers. During this session, we conduct an assessment, allowing you to share your concerns about your child. This also gives you the opportunity to explore the environment and approach I use in my work.

My aim is to make you as comfortable as possible and support you on your journey of change. Your well-being matters, so please feel free to reach out with any inquiries or questions that you may have.
