Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy ("BACP")
Member of the EMDR Association
I am a fully-qualified and experienced BACP psychotherapeutic counsellor in Maidstone and the surrounding areas. You can call me in confidence on 07738 197739 or click here to email me for a no obligation, confidential and free call or email discussion.
I am accredited by the BACP and provide counselling, psychotherapy and EMDR for individuals and organisations in Maidstone from Tuesday to Friday. I offer a professional service and have over ten years post-qualification experience working with individuals on a short or long term basis, including some who are experiencing multiple and complex difficulties.
I started working with clients at Bromley Community Counselling Service and Off-the-Record Youth Counselling Service during my second year of training. I now work with people aged 18 years upwards and enjoy my work tremendously.
After I qualified, I worked at Bridge Counselling in Basildon, Essex as an adult counsellor and was there for six years before building up my private practice initially in Maidstone, and later in Tunbridge Wells.
Having worked with many clients over the years, I feel privileged to have shared their individual experiences and helping them work through some difficult feelings, emotions and situations.
