Mates in Mind

I am a qualified, committed, caring and experienced integrative therapist, trainer and Lecturer of Counselling Skills. The service I offer is a confidential, safe and non-judgmental space to explore whatever issues you care to bring. I am dedicated to supporting my clients through challenging times.

I have worked as a therapist with children and young people in schools and colleges, young adults and staff at university and with couples on both a short and long-term basis. Within my practice I use different approaches and techniques that are tailored to your needs, believing that we are all individual and that ‘one size does not fit all’.

My area of specialism is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), which is a form of psychotherapy used in the treatment of trauma and PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder) and can also be used for a wide range of other issues including anxiety, depression, panic attacks, addiction, phobias and grief. I also offer Eco Therapy in woodlands near where I live, which invites clients to walk and talk in nature. I have lived and worked extensively in many countries, including Denmark, Bolivia, Qatar, Thailand, India and Bangladesh.

I currently work for the University of Kent at Canterbury as a therapist and as a Lecturer of Counselling Skills at East Kent College as well as working in private practice. I am also a Counselling Supervisor in Training, which means I can offer reduced rates to Counsellors seeking supervision.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am also an Accredited Registrant with the National Counselling Society MNCS (Accred)) and a Member of the International Alliance of Holistic Therapists. I hold an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service certificate (DBS) and have Professional Indemnity insurance.

I offer face to face and online sessions, couples’ sessions and messages can be left on my confidential counselling mobile.
