Counsellor in Kent

Are you feeling down, depressed, anxious? Are your relationships causing you stress or hurt? Do you feel that you are alone or have no-one to talk to? If you have answered "Yes" to any of these questions then please get in touch, Im here to help you.
I am a fully trained and accredited professional Integrative Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor with experience in many issues. I work with all ages and offer both short and long term counselling.
I am also trained in Life Coaching and can use this alongside counselling to help clients manage their lives to maximise their potential and reach their own goals.
By offering you a confidential and safe space to talk through your issues I can help you begin to understand how past events and experiences may be responsible for your current beliefs, behaviour and actions. By helping you to see things in a new way it allows you the choice of change. With help and support you can make the changes you may have always wished for or have yet to discover. I believe that by helping you to understand yourself it enables you the tools to make the most of your future.

These approaches are:

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) - Questioning Core Beliefs
Person Centered - Affirming and offering Unconditional Positive Regard UPR
Existentialism - Concentrates on the 'here and now'
