Member Status: Senior Accredited

Location: Hythe

I work with people from all different background including individuals, couples, trainee counsellors, adults coming to terms with childhood trauma and abuse, professionals seeing to manage stress and support their wellbeing.

In a world that often feels in crisis and full of heightened anxiety, stress and depression life seems to have become even more challenging than ever. I see counselling as a tool to help overcome anxiety and stress and to create change towards living a happier, more enriched, fulfilled and meaningful life. My aim is to offer you a safe, confidential space to help you explore and make sense of whatever your difficulties are, whether they are emotional or relational.
