About Me


am a qualified  Integrative Counsellor, meaning that I am not fixed in one perspective I use a wide variety of approaches including CBT,person-centred and solution focused brief therapy.
I combined these approaches according to the clients needs believing no two people or issue can be solved with one process.
 My training includes working for DAVSS - domestic abuse charity as an advisor  . I have also worked  at West Kent College as a  student  counsellor .At present ,I work for  The  Place To Be  charity ,as a children's counsellor . 

I work from the premise that our early experiences have a big influence on who we are today. From the early years, we learn to adapt to our environment, often at the cost of our more creative and unique aspects. I see those experiences as powerful forces subconsciously shaping our lives, determining how we are in the world now, how we relate to others and what is the relationship with ourselves.

Therapy provides an opportunity to heal the wounds of the painful disconnections from the past by expressing your truth in a confidential and non-judgemental space. It can be challenging, but it can present opportunities for growth and life that feels more real and satisfying.

I attend regular supervision and attend training sessions on a regular basis in a variety of counselling topics.
I have a  DBS enhanced certificate and  I work with adults, young  people and children.
