Helping you have a better and brighter future
HOW CAN I HELP YOU?
By considering counselling, you may have reached, or feel you are nearing, a crisis point in your life. Your personal circumstances may have changed for the worse, or you may have decided that you simply don't want to continue feeling this way. You have taken an important step in starting to create a better and brighter future for yourself.
I do not have a magic wand and I cannot "fix" your problems for you, but I am a highly trained counsellor with extensive experience of helping people with anxiety and depression. I can work with you to unpick why you are feeling depressed and anxious and give you the support and structure you need to make positive changes.
I'm Andrea and I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor specialising in helping people with anxiety and depression.
I work with individuals aged 16 and over and I have consulting rooms in Tenterden and Benenden in Kent. I offer weekday appointments, some evening appointments and have limited availability on Saturday mornings.
I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Transactional Analysis (TA) Practice, and have completed 4 years of Advanced Clinical Training in TA Psychotherapy and 2 years of counselling training. In addition to my private practice, I also work as a counsellor in local schools.
I am an Anxiety UK Approved Therapist, providing counselling to the charity's members and partner beneficiaries. I am subject to Anxiety UK's regular monitoring of my professional qualifications, supervision, continual professional development, insurance and professional body membership.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Association for Transactional Analysis (UKATA) and I adhere to the Code of Ethics and Professional Practice of these professional bodies.
