About me

I was born in All Saints Hospital in Chatham Kent. My family all live in the area and where in the forces when I was little, so I have lived in a few different places before returning to settle in Kent. I have always worked in Jobs that have supported people and as I entered my thirty’s I found myself interested in mental health. I think this came with more questions than answers. I had always found myself in conversations with people going through struggles, being that listening ear but having not much to respond with. I had life experience but how do you really help someone? really understand how to give real support to people struggling. I decided to find out how to become a counsellor and as they say the rest was history. I studied at Dartford Inter-psyche which is a counselling school with a fantastic reputation and graduated after three years.

I started off as a counsellor for a charity, then moved to become a manager and now I also run a private clinic. I enjoy doing them all. Outside of my job I like outdoor actives and am always heading off to go for bike rides, swimming or exploring national parks. I also love restaurants and cooking basically anything to do with food. I have learnt that these are the things that help me to feel grounded and balanced in my life. My selfcare routine. I aim to help my clients in finding their own along their journey into therapy.

I am a great believer in finding what works for you, for one person it might be a quiet meditation but for another it might be singing in the car at the top of there lungs!
