About me and my therapy practice

We all face times in our lives when we feel lost, anxious, and overwhelmed. We may find it hard to get out of bed in the morning, or feel like no-one will understand what we are going through. Sometimes intense memories of a loss or a traumatic event in our past may be hindering us from moving forward, creating painful patterns in our day to day lives. Perhaps we just feel that something is 'off' and sense that we are not living our lives in the most fulfilling and meaningful way possible. I am a qualified Integrative counsellor trained to work with adults and young people, and want to help you find a way forward.

Practice description

I am passionate about supporting people move beyond trauma, and create meaning and satisfaction in their lives. I have five years experience working with individuals who have experienced serious trauma and abuse, including sexual violence. I offer a deeply empathic and relational space where we can explore together what has brought you to counselling.

My integrative approach includes the warmth of the person-centred relationship, the depth of the psychodynamic therapies, and the pragmatic solution focus of CBT, depending on what you need. I work both short and long term and offer an initial telephone consultation so you can get to know me and ask any questions.

I have a private therapy room in Birchington where I am able to offer face to face sessions. I am also happy to work remotely by phone/online - or a combination of the two.
