About me and my therapy practice
Specialising in trauma, stress and anxiety - I will work with you to look clearly at everything you may be facing and the impact it might be having on your mental health and general wellbeing. I can help you to gain a greater understanding of your thoughts and I can assist you in finding (and implementing) strategies to deal with whatever life throws at you.
Some wish to focus on a specific life event - a bereavement, sudden diagnosis of an illness or a particular distress that they may be facing. For example, low mood/depression, work related stress or symptoms of general anxiety. For others it may be a chance to gain insight into why they feel as they do or to understand changes they may have been considering. Both coaching and counselling provide an opportunity to explore, make sense and take control of what is happening in your life.
I began my counselling career fifteen years ago in hospice care, supporting patients from diagnosis to end of life. I have been privileged to have worked in this specialist setting providing positive reinforcement to patients, families and frontline staff.
Working with Kent Police in the Counselling & Well-being team, I was involved in the design and development of an award-winning psycho-educational well-being programme - used by both officers and civilian staff. Helping them to cope with the inherent anxiety, stress and trauma that they face in their roles.
I am an Integrative Counsellor meaning that I draw from different theoretical practices to help the individual as a whole.
I am fully insured and registered as a Counsellor with the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I am bound by its ethical framework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy.
