Hello and welcome to the Integrative Counselling website
I am a fully-qualified and experienced BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) psychotherapeutic counsellor with practices in Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells, Kent covering the surrounding areas. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental relationship in which you can explore personal or difficult issues that may be causing you distress.
My professionally accredited training and experience enables me to work with clients on a short-term focused or goal-orientated basis, as well as an open-ended longer term basis to enable us to explore personal challenges at a deeper level. It is so important for you to have a robust connection with your counsellor and that is why we meet for an initial assessment so that you can make sure you feel comfortable working with me. Not only can we talk about what is troubling you, but also what may be blocking progression and any feelings about personal change. Counselling is a fluid process and can be challenging at times but you will find the best results through your commitment and engagement.
As your counsellor in either Maidstone or Tunbridge Wells, I will only work on a face-to-face basis, as this is proven to be the most effective form of therapy. Studies confirm that a substantial proportion of our communication is non-verbal - i.e. behaviours such as posture, facial expressions, eye gaze, gestures and tone of voice. These non-verbal details reveal who we are and impact on how we relate to other people giving a much fuller picture.
Counselling, psychotherapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming (EMDR) can help you with:-
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Work related issues
If you are experiencing distress with one particular issue or a combination of different issues, please contact me to discuss how counselling and psychotherapy in Maidstone or Tunbridge Wells can help you.
I believe that we cannot forget what has happened in our lives but through psychotherapy, counselling or EMDR we can positively change the way in which our experiences affect our daily lives.
