A fully Accredited Integrative Therapist based in Maidstone, Kent....
Is life stressful and you feel unable to cope? Do you feel there is nobody to listen to you or that you can trust? Would you like to speak to a qualified Counsellor who has their own life experience and can understand how you feel? Would you like that Counsellor to be able to give you their time in a completely non-judgemental way and work together to find solutions to your problems? If any of this resonates with you, then please feel free to contact me.
Are you the partner, family member, carer or friend of someone who is struggling with their issues of depression, mental health, bereavement, self-harm? Well who cares for you? After all you matter too, if you feel unsupported then how can you support others? I specialise in helping carers too.
I am also qualified Hypnotherapist and find that this is a valuable tool to use for those who may be stuck. Some people know that something is not quite right or as it should be, Hypnotherapy can help you to discover for yourself what may be holding you back.
