Key Worker CounsellingMates in Mind

I am a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist and offer a range of therapies to suit client’s needs. I work with adults, individuals, and couples on a short, medium, and long-term basis, online and face to face from my private practice.

People seek therapy for a variety of reasons. Some want specific support following a bereavement, relationship issues, work issues, anxiety, depression, gender concerns low self-esteem or a lack of confidence. Other people feel generally overwhelmed with the challenges that life brings.

Whatever your need I offer a safe, confidential, and supportive space where you can talk about what's worrying you without the fear of being judged, so you feel heard and valued. I am passionate about psychotherapy and believe that it enables people to make meaning out of their problems so that they can take informed decisions about what they want to do to bring about change in their lives.

I live and work in Paddock Wood Kent. My practice has free parking and is within walking distance of Paddock Wood train station.

I offer an initial free consultation where you can see how you experience working with me.
