Summerhouse Counselling

Set in my beautiful purpose built summerhouse in the Kent countryside close to Rochester,  I can offer you one to one counselling in a peaceful and tranquil environment. I believe that for the counselling process to really work we need to address ourselves as a whole, mind, body and spirit. As a counsellor I aim to provide you with a healing experience where you can feel safe, held, really heard and understood. I believe that when we are confused, hurt or misunderstood we don’t need advice, but just someone to listen and guide us through our choices so that we can make our own decisions.
