About Me

Fully Qualified Integrative Counsellor

I am a qualified counsellor based in Tunbridge Wells, who began training in 2006 at the Wealden Institute of Counselling.  I began in private practice shortly after qualifying in 2009 and have build up a thriving and successful practice.  Prior to counselling, I worked in Financial Services for a number of years in London.

I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families of all ages and backgrounds.  I have undertaken many hours of CPD (Continued Professional Development), and more specific training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Neurodiversity and Eating Disorders / Disordered Eating. I underwent training with Deanne Jade (as seen on television) with the National Centre of Eating Disorders.  I have also worked with ITV in relation to some of their guests on a regular morning TV show and I have been a regular guest on the BBC news and BBC radio regarding eating disorders and mental health in young people.

In relation to the Eating Disorder therapy, I work closely with a team of nutritionists, GP's and dieticians, to offer a network of support for each individual if needed.  I also provide guidance and support for the families and partners of those suffering.  Please contact me for more details.
