Counselling, Psychotherapy, EMDR, Mindfulness & Supervision in Cranbrook & Online
I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist, and an EMDR Europe Accredited Consultant with 17 years' experience in the field of psychological therapy. Since qualifying as a Counsellor in 2003, I have completed many additional trainings in trauma-focused approaches (including EMDR), systemic approaches, mindfulness, CBT and supervision. I have worked with a broad range of clients presenting with many different issues in the NHS in Primary Care, in the Welfare Department of Kent Police and in private practice. I work with clients experiencing symptoms of trauma, anxiety (including performance anxiety), low mood and phobias. Clients also come to me to address relationship issues and habits/behaviours they would like to change. I describe my approach is Integrative, with a Person-Centred philosophy underpinning all of my work. I am particularly interested in working to relieve my clients of present day difficulties which may have their roots in trauma. This may be single incident trauma or more chronic, and possibly subtle, attachment trauma from childhood. I work mainly with attachment-focused EMDR and Internal Family Systems, both of which are powerful ways of understanding yourself and both of which gently and creatively support transformation and healing. As well as counselling, psychotherapy and EMDR trauma-focused therapy, I offer clinical supervision and am a teacher of mindfulness.

When third parties instigate contact with me via phone (calls, voicemail and text message), and via email, I will consider, by convention, that they intend and acknowledge that I may return contact by these means. Likewise, where an enquirer provides me with alternative contact details I will consider that they are inviting me to use those contact details in good faith.
