About me and my therapy practice
My counselling service is for both men and women, but consciously aimed toward men to offer a space where they feel, confident and supported to work through their issues. It is often a misconception that 'men don't talk', but rather that men don't know that counselling can be for them too.
Some of the reasons people come to counselling include;
- Sex or Relationship Issues
- Gay and bisexual issues or struggling to come out
- Sexual abuse
- Work Issues
- Bullying, verbal, emotional or physical
- Issues at work
- Coming to terms with loss, bereavement
- Struggling to live an authentic life
From time to time we often feel unable to move on or shift our patterns of behaviour that start to have an affect on our own wellbeing and that of those around us. Our relationships may start to breakdown or we feel unable to be in one all together. We can be finding ourselves isolated, overwhelmed and misunderstood.
I am a fully qualified Person Centred Therapist. I have over 5 years experience working with people who have come to therapy for a variety of reasons. I offer both short and long term therapy.
Currently working as a counselling supplier for NHS Trusts and accepting EAP referrals from organisations in and around Kent. Contact me for more details and availability.

There is often a lot of anxiety around the first session, and you have already taken a huge step in getting in contact.
In our first encounter with each other, we can explore the reasons you are thinking of having therapy and there is space for you to ask some questions you may have. This first session will also give you an opportunity to decide if I am the right therapist for you at this time.
