Location: Wateringbury Maidstone

I am a trained hypnotherapist and Psychotherapeutic counsellor based just outside West Malling in Kent. I’m a member and listed on the accredited register of the National Hypnotherapy and Counselling Society who abides by the code of ethics in my industry. My course is also accredited by AIM Awards and the RoyalCollege of Nursing. I genuinely care about my clients and treat each person who walks through my door as an individual and never impose a “one treatment fits all” approach. You are a unique individual and my commitment is to listen to your challenges, however big or small, and then treat accordingly.

My promise to each client is:

* To listen
* To provide professional care and empathy
* To offer you a calm and restful space, where you will be supported through your transformation
* To bring caring, compassion and non-judgement to whatever challenge you are experiencing
* If needed, to safely support you through crisis to the other side
* To help you have more meaningful connections in your life
* To enable you to feel joy again and feel excited by all the possibility and potential in your life.

I do all of this in a relaxed, comfortable and safe environment and work out of a beautiful, private cabin located in my secluded garden, called The Therapy Cabin. This spacious and tranquil space is the perfect place for privacy and relaxation. There is also free off-street parking and air conditioning.
