Welcome

Thank you for taking the time to look at my website. My name is Beth Garrett and I am an accredited counsellor, supervisor and trainer.  I have a private practice in Kemsing, Kent which is situated at the foot of the North Downs.

I hope the following information will help you decide whether you would like to pursue counselling with me.

Counselling

Counselling is a collaborative relationship where we both work together, in a supportive environment, on the things that may be troubling you.

Sharing a problem can be hugely beneficial and counselling provides a safe and regular space for you to talk and explore difficult emotions. It can be a great relief to share your worries and fears with someone who acknowledges your feelings and works towards helping you reach a solution.

About Me

I have over 16 years’ experience of working with adults and young people in a variety of settings. I enjoy offering different approaches which I integrate to best match particular needs. I also provide a creative space with a variety of media to use including clay, paint, postcards and miniature figures. Using the arts needs no previous experience, the focus is on self expression rather than being artistic and is always invitational, not an expectation.

I have worked with a large range of presenting problems including physical, sexual and emotional abuse, self-harm and suicide, anxiety, stress, panic attacks, work related issues, bereavement and loss, depression, identity, life stages, relationship issues, eating disorders, miscarriage, infertility, stillbirth and SIDS.

I am an Accredited Counsellor and a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, whose ethical framework I abide by. I am also an accredited counsellor with The Foundation for Infant Loss. I have a diploma in Counselling and Integrative Arts Psychotherapy, a certificate in Advanced Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy as well as a diploma in Supervision from The Link.

I offer a half hour free telephone consultation as a first meeting. This is an opportunity for me to hear about your situation and for you to ask any questions and learn more about what I can offer.  After this conversation, if you feel happy to work together, we can then arrange a regular weekly appointment time.  Fees are negotiable, I work on a sliding scale of charges depending on circumstances. Each session lasts for 50 minutes. My hours are Tuesday to Friday from 9am till 8:15pm.

All of my work is bound by confidentiality.  I am CRB checked and approved and my practice is covered by Professional and Public Liability Insurances.
