Location: Broadstairs

I am an experienced Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in Broadstairs. My private practice here follows my work in London helping people overcome difficult and challenging situations.

The approach I use is tailored to you and depends on the issue at hand. This style of working together is seen as an important factor for success.

Regardless of whether your concern is recent, long-standing or an isolated event, I can offer you a safe space where you can be yourself and express your genuine thoughts.

I work with a wide range of difficulties including struggles with anger, abuse, sadness, addictions/compulsions and depression.

I also help with:

Anxiety - Resolving underlining causes that are preventing a healthier life.

Self-Care - Understanding your needs to improve mood and self-worth.

Relationships - Exploring behaviour and entanglement issues with partners, family or friends.

Burnout - Managing boundaries to rejuvenate motivation and purpose

Identity and Sexuality - Celebrating who you are and improving your happiness.

Well-being and happiness are possible. They sometimes need the right professional support.
