My name is Charlie. I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I offer a safe, confidential and understanding environment for you to explore your thoughts and feelings. Whether you are looking for short-term therapy relating to a specific issue, or long-term therapy for ongoing problems that are impacting your life, I can help.
I work with adults, young people and children aged 5+ years. I have experience of counselling for local agencies and within schools in North Kent. A keen interest of mine is working with individuals with Special Educational Needs and I work closely with local support groups.
Counselling can help you discover new insight and understanding about yourself, as well as working out new ways of approaching situations. I am not there to tell you what to do but to work alongside you in building a trusting relationship and encourage you through your difficulties.
Counselling is a talking therapy that aims to improve an individual’s well-being and mental health. It allows people to explore their thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential environment with a trained professional.
Common subjects that can be addressed are:
Working integratively means that I use three main theoretical approaches: the Person-Centred Approach, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Psychodynamic Theory. I will integrate these models depending on your needs. I understand that one size does not fit all and, therefore, I may also use play, sand, art and creative materials alongside talking therapy to explore your problems in a way that works best for you.
