As well as my private counselling practice I also work as a Psychological Therapist for West Kent Talking Therapies. I have experience of working with the Bariatric Service providing 1-1 and group therapy with an obese client group. I have worked within a college environment providing therapeutic counselling for young people aged between 16 - 19. I also have over 15 years experience working within Human Resources, supporting both managers and staff with day to day employee relation issues, such as sickness absence.
I worked for IAPT (Increasing access into psychological therapies) as an employment adviser, supporting individuals back into the workplace following a period of long-term sickness and/or experiencing difficulties at work.
To provide a warm, safe, respectful and non-judgemental environment for you to explore and express your feelings. To support and help you to assess and evaluate issues with a view to putting mechanisms and strategies in place to enhance your life.
This involves working through issues and reorganising the way you think about matters.
Most importantly it helps you to understand, be kind and begin to like yourself, allowing you to grow as a person and accept who you are.
My standard rate is £40 per session. A session is 50 minutes.
In our first session we can discuss and decide if we both believe that we can work together effectively.
I offer reduced rates for students and trainee counsellors.
