Having spent much of my Adult life working in the property industry and learning to "manage" the extreme emotions that could be triggered within my Clients around moving, I decided to take a leap of faith in my 40's and retrained to work within the Profession that I do today.
I pride my role as a Counsellor and endeavour to offer the best support that I can to my Clients. Over the years I have learned much from my individual client work, and can acknowledge that the experiences that I have gained within the therapy room have lead me to become the Therapist that I am today.
Having a lived experience with an Eating Disorder certainly informed my decision to study further within this specialism and over the years I have been fortunate to work with a number of Agencies and Charities to offer support to those that struggle with their developed relationship and belief system around food. I have also worked within a number of Schools in Kent to help raise awareness of the issues around Eating Disorders and Body Dysmorphia.
My training as an Integrative Therapist allows me to draw on many different types of therapy, CBT, Humanistic and Person Centred and I am therefore able to offer support to Clients that have struggles other than Eating Disorders. I have worked in many Schools and Academies in recent years, with both Students and Teaching Staff alike, working with a number of issues Exam Stress, Bereavement, Post Natal Depression, Family Issues and more. Many of the areas that I can offer therapeutic support in, are listed below.
