I am a fully qualified and very experienced BACP-Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in Broadstairs offering therapy to individual adults. My private practice here follows my work in London helping people overcome difficult and challenging situations.
Whether your concern is recent, long-standing or an isolated event, I offer a confidential and non-judgemental environment where you are free to be yourself and express your genuine thoughts.
I tailor my approach to you and the issue at hand. This integrative-style of working celebrates you as a unique individual whilst focusing on those aspects of your life that you feel need attention.
I work with a wide range of difficulties including struggles with addiction, compulsions, depression, shame, guilt and burnout.
My principal areas of interest are:
Relationships --- Issues concerning infidelity, trust and/or behaviour with partners, family & friends.
Anger -- Investigating root causes and establishing coping strategies.
Anxiety --- Identifying underlining causes that are preventing you from leading a healthy life.
Self-Care --- Understanding personal needs and boundaries to improve self-awareness, self-esteem, self-worth and self-respect.
Perfectionism -- Examining reasons for obsessive/unrealistic goal setting, procrastination, fear of failure and inability to acknowledge being 'good enough'.
Well-being and happiness are possible. They sometimes just need the right professional support.
I embrace diversity.
