About me

I am an experienced psychotherapist offering one to one, couples and group psychotherapy, and clinical supervision (Please see my response to the Coronavirus-Covid -19 situation below). I have been a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist since 2002 and practised within the NHS as a Highly Specialist Psychotherapist from 2006-2018. Prior to this I practised as a GP Counsellor for five years. My private practice is based in Whitstable, Kent.

In my work as a Humanistic-Psychodynamic practitioner I have gathered extensive experience in working with people who present with many different emotional and psychological difficulties such as: problematic relationships, sadness and loss, depression, anxiety, trauma and abuse, impulsive behaviours, self-harming and addiction concerns.

Emotional and psychological difficulties can become debilitating to the point they can impair the quality of our every day life. Psychotherapy provides a space in which experiences and difficult feelings can be sensitively thought about, and where you can feel heard and understood. This experience ideally leads to greater self-awareness, to better understanding of your personal relationships, and to an understanding of the psychological patterns which underlie your presenting symptoms.

In light of Coronavirus/Covid-19 and the implications that this pandemic can have on mental health, and on accessing treatment itself, I am extending my provision of non-face to face treatment to include online and also telephone support. Online and telephone support are a means of maintaining contact in a safe way and of providing treatment during periods of self-isolation.

If you would like to talk through your concerns in a private confidential setting you can arrange an initial consultation, and then from this take the time you need to consider if you want to proceed with therapy.

To arrange an appointment please telephone or send me an email with your contact details. I will then contact you at my earliest convenience.

As a UKCP registered Clinical Supervisor I offer one to one and group supervision to Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Counselling Psychologists and Clinical Psychologists.

I am a registered Psychotherapist with medical providers BUPA, AXA-PPP, WPA and VITALITY.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
