About me

As a professional counsellor I believe people access counselling for varying reasons. It maybe to gain understanding, because they are fed up or because something has happened that has left them struggling.

We all have difficulties at some time in our life. The memory of these experiences and the painful feelings associated with them can be felt for a long time afterwards, without being acknowledged. Unresolved feelings can result in emotional problems and/or health failure. Identifying that there is a need to seek help is the first step to recovery. Counselling can take place when a person who has an emotionally or psychologically related difficulty seeks the assistance of a counsellor to find a way to deal with it.


Experience

I feel passionate about people becoming empowered. Everyone should be the only person who decides in which way their life steers.

I trained primarily within the Kent & Medway NHS Social Care Partnership Trust, Inter-psyche. I also have worked in various settings including; community counselling, community mental health, substance misuse & structured residential settings.
