About Me

I am a qualified psychotherapist, counsellor and coach with many years of experience helping others to manage difficult situations in their lives and deal with the powerful emotions they bring. I also help them to reconnect with who they are, what matters to them, their values and beliefs, their dreams and expectations, and to explore what is the right way forward for them.

I have years of experience working at a senior level in organisations and in my own consultancy practice. This adds to my experience as a psychotherapist and counsellor to enable me to work with a range of people from all walks of life and with varied experience.

I am told I am very good at offering a grounded and calm environment for others to share their concerns and problems and can often enable them to find the best solutions for them in a very pragmatic and grounded way.

I have always been someone who intently listened to the stories of others both what is said and what is left unsaid. I love the unfolding of people’s stories, hearing what moves them and what intrigues them. I am curious about how we come to be how we are today and I am convinced that we are the masters of our own destiny.

My curiosity led me to study psychology at university eventually followed by undertaking various types of psychotherapy training including Transactional Analysis and Transpersonal Psychotherapy and Counselling. Whilst I appreciated the insights and learning of other courses I loved the holistic and integrative approach offered by the Transpersonal perspective.

I have a private psychotherapy and counselling practice in North Kent, close to the M2 so it offers very easy access for those travelling from parts of East Kent,West Kent,  Mid Kent or the outer boroughs of South East London.

My experience with clients is broad, ranging from: those suffering stress and anxiety; childhood abuse and trauma; low confidence and self-esteem; anger and behaviour management; relationship issues; exploring and healing life crises; bereavement; and depression. I have also worked with those facing transition periods in their lives such as change or loss of job, or relationship break down as well as helping people to re-engage with their life passion and meaning – to refocus their future path and to re-energise their commitment to the next steps. Others have used the space we create to focus on how they use their Leadership in shaping their own lives and how they are able to be authentic in their Leadership of others in the workplace.

As a member of BACP and through registration with UKCP, I work to the Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct of both organisations.
