Her practice is ideally situated to take clients from the surrounding areas including Herne Bay, Canterbury, Thanet and the Medway Towns. Beverley offers short and longer term therapy to individuals and couples. The treatment offered will depend upon the issue that you are struggling with.

It can contribute significantly to the individual's mental and physical health, to their sense of well-being and to their ability to manage their lives more effectively.
Couples Counselling will focus on the problem within the couple relationship and help to understand and resolve the couple difficulties.
