About Me

I am a Counsellor, an Accredited Play and Creative Arts Therapist, and Play Therapy Supervisor. I offer my services through Smiles Counselling and Play Therapy which is based in Gravesham and I work within the County of Kent. I have worked in Primary Schools, in teaching and SENCo roles, since 2007; I later trained as a Play Therapist as I recognised the beneficial results and difference play therapy can make in and outside of school. I then trained as an adult and children’s counsellor as I recognised the need for this support. I can now adapt the therapy to suit the needs of children or adults and work in a way that suits each individual.    

Areas covered: Gravesham, Dartford, Medway and surrounding area.
