I am a qualified, BACP registered counsellor & psychotherapist with over 10 years of experience.

My practice is based centrally in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, and I offer both face-to-face and online therapy sessions.

I am a humanistic integrative therapist, which essentially means I tailor my approach based on your individual needs. I am a Certified Lifespan Integration therapist and will either work in an integrated or pure LI way depending on how you would like to work. Either way our work will involve gently enquiring into your past and your future aspirations, but with a particular focus on how both may be shaping you in the here and now. With that understanding achieved together, we will focus on any childhood wounds, misheld beliefs, internal conflicts as well as any ‘coping’ strategies that have worked for you in the past, but that may be contributing to your struggles today.

I hold a particular interest in working with trauma (acute, chronic, complex and vicarious). Trauma relates to any life event that is physically or emotionally threatening and causes on-going psychological distress whether it be through attachment trauma (childhood difficulties with our primary caregivers e.g. neglect, abuse, loss of parent or parental divorce), or a traumatic event or experience at any time in our lives (e.g. bullying, accidents, domestic & sexual abuse, bereavement and loss, natural disasters, war). This means I work with a wide range of struggles including: anxiety, depression, stress, anger, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, addiction & self-harm, sexual identity, lack of meaning or direction, isolation, life choices.

I hold that each of us possesses the inner strength and resources to overcome our struggles, but that it is from within a safe, warm, trusting and fully accepting relationship that we find the capacity to heal and grow. My aim is to provide you with that relationship. A relationship that allows you to open up, explore your most inner thoughts and feelings and in so doing better understand yourself and make positive changes.

I look forward to working with you.
