Hello, and thank you for visiting.
I'm an experienced Counsellor & Supervisor based in Kent, able to offer you a face to face, online or telephone counselling service if you are experiencing issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, bereavement, relationship problems, stresses, low confidence / self-esteem, addictions. Let me help you gain some clarity and insight on the difficulty that you might be struggling with at this moment, to show you how you are able to move forward from the pain that you are feeling. As an experienced Counsellor I can offer you effective, individualised counselling support to help you get to a better place of living and being, to make sense of what's causing you distress and discomfort.
Let's be honest, life at times can be a challenge and difficult, and the events and feelings that we experience during these times can be unsettling and confusing, though such moments do not have to define, entrap or hold you back. Are you seeking change to your life; do you want to be free from the difficulties that currently sit with you? You may have been contemplating where to go, what to do, how to go about achieving such a change...…well, the fact that you are reading this would suggest you have awoken and are ready to start the process of change to your life.
When is going to be the right time for you to invest in yourself, to seek and find a better way of thinking and feeling? The reality and truth is that as long as you live lost in thought you are not really living. A life that is experienced only through the mind and its stories is like a black and white picture of a beautiful sunset: drab and dreary.
If you have never experienced the benefits of counselling before then you may understandably feel a little unsure and nervous about taking that first step, though in doing so it will enable you to unlock and set free the potential that deep down you know already exists within you. Just think for a moment about the life that you want to lead; what does that look like, what would that feel like?
I would encourage you to be brave and purposeful in making today the day that you choose to begin moving towards a better place of living, to invest in yourself, to give value, recognition and meaning to who you are, and not to deny yourself the opportunity for your self-development and growth; the best thing that you can give is to bestow and show the love and care that you have for yourself.

'A journey of a thousand miles begin with a single step' Lao Tzu.
Everyone deserves a life of meaning, purpose and fulfilment, and together we'll identify the direction that you want to take to achieve this. We'll do this together by you having the time and space to share your thoughts and feelings, and for these to be fully heard.
We'll work together on ways in which you can realise your aims, help you understand the narratives and script patterns that may play out in your life, and how to you break free from these and make positive changes to your life.
My promise and commitment is to be there for you every single step of your journey. My goal is to help you better understand your presenting issues and struggles, to help you make sense of your thoughts and feelings, and to journey with you along your path of change.
Our work together will go at your pace and in the direction that you feel comfortable with. The counselling sessions are your opportunity to reflect on your life, the areas you feel stuck, and ways in which you can make the choices of meaningful change in your life.
Anxiety, fear and depression are some of the uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point during our lives.
Through therapy work I am able to help you find clarity, perspective and a deeper understanding of what may lay behind the challenges you are feeling and experiencing.
I can help you recognise the symptoms and triggers that cause feelings of anger, guiding you through the process of the 'anger cycle' and how to deal with these moments in a calm, measured and rational way.
Don't let feelings of anger be a destructive force that impedes your life.
Relationship counselling is beneficial to people looking to strengthen their emotional connection to others and to do so in a caring, thoughtful, compassionate and loving way.
Let me help you explore how you can enjoy more enriching, rewarding and meaningful relationships with people.
