Who are we?



I developed a love for people and mental health following a difficult period in my life which changed my perspective on life. It left me with a passion to help people get where they want to be, reach their potential and most importantly feel less alone on these personal journeys which can feel so frightening and endless at times. I completely changed my career path, retrained and here I am doing a job I love. With help and support I learnt we can get through these challenging times, and I want to share your journey with you and help you get to where you want to be.

I am an experienced psychotherapist and hypnotherapist. I have worked in various clinics including Harley Street London alongside my own practice. Additionally I have been invited into schools delivering motivational teaching to harness self belief, confidence and recognise that we can take control of our thoughts and therefore our future. I have worked with the council providing support for front line staff and within doctors surgeries offering stress management and relaxation techniques to NHS staff.

I have successfully treated many clients for everything from smoking, weight loss and phobias to depression, anxiety and family breakdown and have worked at inpatient clinics for alcohol dependency, eating disorders and breakdowns. I maintain contact with clients offering future support if or when someone needs it and prefer to think of my service as a support for life that people feel they can turn back to at other times of difficulty. No one should ever feel alone.

I have had a love for people my whole life including an interest in psychology that I have pursued from an early age. I have a BSc Psychology (Hons) and am working towards a MSc mental health science.
I have suffered with anxiety and panic attacks myself so know first hand the overwhelming disruption it can cause to daily life, coupled with a frustration that people around you don’t truly understand how you are feeling. I believe mental health is massively under valued and that therapy should be as routine for people as going to the doctors and have seen first hand the difference it makes.
I also home school my two children who both struggled to cope emotionally in the current education system - my youngest has autism and over the years I have developed strategies and support for him and through support groups I also began helping other parents develop systems and support for their own children which have been hugely successful. I have completed courses in autism and believe every child can learn and should be celebrated for who they are. I developed a passion for children’s mental health following my own experiences as a child but also from my own children who both suffer with worries and anxiety. I have helped Marcus to set up ‘Snowflakes’ - our exciting new children’s project designed to educate children on emotions, taking care of their mental health as well as physical, self acceptance and confidence for who they are.

The Practice

Our practice is based within David Lloyd Maidstone in a separated part of the building with its own waiting area to allow privacy for our clients.  Our waiting area and clinic has recently been refurbished to give a fresh relaxing and secure environment for clients.  Our hope is for your visits to us to be just about you - when you come through the door the outside world can wait and we focus on your feelings, hopes and struggles.
