About me and my therapy practice
Thank you for reaching out today, I know it’s not easy and it takes great strength and courage to finally say, something's not working.
We often carry on as we always have, putting our doubts, worries, traumas, patterns and behaviours to one side, as life is often so busy for us all.
Yet as you know they do not go away, and sometimes something pushes us to say ‘STOP, I need to deal with this.’
We then often reach out to friends, family or colleagues, and although we honour their opinions, do we truly let ourselves be vulnerable within these relationships?
Are we openly honest about how we truly feel, or do we often water things down, as to not worry or upset those we love; and in all honesty how often do we sense that they’ve not truly listened or understood us?
Counselling therefore offers you that one true safe space, where you can talk openly and truthfully about you, and what you need.
You now may be thinking, how can just talking bring about change?
And my response would be, when was the last time you truly felt heard?
Yet in the context of our professional relationship, I will hear you, as you will to, allowing you to slowly make sense of your difficulties.
As well as my private practice, I have many years experience working within Domestic Abuse Services; consequently I specialise in Trauma focused therapy.
Yet my work is not limited to Trauma and I have experience working with a broad range of issues.
I also currently work in numerous Kent Primary and Secondary Schools, where I use a range of creative resources to support the children in expressing their thoughts and feelings.
My therapy space is also fully equipped for children's therapy.
My Private Practice is based in Sittingbourne, where I offer Face to Face sessions.
I also offer On-Line sessions for clients that are unable to attend in person, or need more flexibility.
My first session
I understand you’ll have many questions racing through your mind at this stage; will I like them, will they like me, will I feel comfortable, will they judge me, what if.....
So please let me put your mind at rest; I offer a free 30 minute ‘coming together’ session, which gives you the time to ask as many questions as you like, and decide if I’m the right person for you.
It also allows me time to explore what’s going on for you, and for you to talk openly about your hopes and expectations.
