About me and my therapy practice

I am a Kent based Integrative Counsellor with a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I am registered with the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) the largest professional body for Counsellors and Psychotherapists in the UK. My practice complies with the BACP’s stringent ethical and professional guidelines. I have full DBS (CRB) Certification, professional indemnity insurance.

As part of my training, I have worked for Walk Tall charity supporting clients with various issues including grief, depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. I work with different modalities based on the client needs, including psychodynamic, humanistic and cognitive behavioural theories.

I am experienced in working with a range of ages; from teenagers and young people up to adults. I currently work with complex mental health needs and Special Educational Needs in alternative provisions dealing with complex trauma, mental health and emotional resilience. 

I am able to develop trusting relationships during the counselling process to enhance the clients knowledge of self and to develop positive changes to support organic growth and mindset.  

Practice description

I am an Integrative counsellor and Therapist working with both short or long term therapeutic models based on the clients needs, drawing on differing modalities such as Person Centred, Psychodynamic and CBT tailoring each session to your individual needs. 

My work is focused around strict confidentiality and having a non-judgemental space to assist you in exploring your own development with a guidance into understanding a deeper personal insight into your presented problem/s. 

  

My first session

I offer an initial free no obligation phone consultation of 20 minutes to discuss the nature of your needs, to see what you are seeking from counselling and to understand how best I can support you on your counselling journey. This is also the opportunity for you to get to ask questions, get to understand how I work and how we would work together.

We would also discuss the next steps in counselling/therapy and what that would look like, including day and time of sessions should you decide to take up counselling/therapy offer.
