About me and my therapy practice

Counselling can change your life! As a therapist with many years' experience in both the NHS and private sector, I see the changes clients are enabled to bring about in their lives by having a safe and therapeutic place in which to share problems and difficult issues. 

 Different perspectives and interpretations of life events can  evolve through counselling,  enabling  you to gain new insights and understandings so that you can move forward feeling happier and more at one with yourself. 

My approach is psychodynamic  - looking at your presenting problem in the context of early experiences, but I will also draw on strategies and ways of understanding that come from other traditions as I feel appropriate.

I have experience of helping with an extensive range of client issues and am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society as well as MBACP.  In addition to my work in the NHS and private counselling field, I also work as a counsellor for Canterbury Diocese and have  been involved with training for the Samaritans and worked in schools helping with anger management and behavioural issues.

Academically - I have a degree, a masters in Organisational Psychology as well as a diploma in counselling  and psychotherapy in hypnotherapy and postgraduate teaching qualification.

My goal is to help you to move forward understanding yourself better, to be more at  ease with yourself and better able to manage life's difficulties -  both current and future!
