About me

How Bad Does It Get?

No matter the low moments you have and no matter how much you blame yourself for any difficulties -we can find a way through that helps you deal with the past and manage your days and future better.

If you feel trapped by repetition, this is not uncommon but actually, you hold the key.  Letting some old ideas go and giving yourself new tools to carry with you, will create change.

We (you and I)  process your thoughts together.  Do not underestimate yourself.  You may just need someone to help you make sense of the past and follow a pathway that doesn't lead to the same old outcomes . The biggest obstacle for many is letting go of rigid ideas you have about yourself. Those who take this step are far more likely to get to where they want to be.

Shall we try?

A Little About Me

I am a highly experienced, dedicated and skilled Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and a Psychodynamic Counsellor.  I have accreditation and am registered with the UKCP. I have been counselling for 20 years and also delivering psychotherapy for 15 of those.

My clients are from every age group and walk of life.  All deserve my best....and get it!

You Are So Important

No matter the ups and downs and struggles you have survived, your life and history are deeply important to me and highly relevant to a successful therapy.

I regard all people as being of equal value. You will made welcome and will always get the very best care and attention. 

Life Is Complicated

Life unfolds with unlimited variations - that's why I apply so much attention to your story. Yet, in other ways, you are not alone. It can be a relief to learn that many people have made this journey for very similar reasons.  If you have discouraging or critical thoughts - it's time to send them on their way and to allow yourself the freedom to believe in yoursef.

If your therapy doesn't get this part right - it's just not therapy!

You And I Solve Mysteries

I know all too well about the difficulties of relationships, the complexities of family issues, co-dependencies, fears of abandonment and those arguments that can becomes all too predictable. 

I know a great deal of how others may misread our intentions or, how we can misread their’s. I know about the battles for perfection that make it hard for some to acknowledge how well they’ve done.   Couples may love one another but can find themselves in a battle to be heard.

Even in our workplace the negative aspects of pressure can create a number of challenges. Sometimes we take these pressures home with us. How to respond with a cool wisdom and how to restore faith in yourself is vital.

Whatever you reach for, we can work it out together if we both give it all we can.

Safe and Confidential Therapy

Here, no personal identifying information is stored on computers or devices of any kind. 

I offer you what you should always have had in your life – privacy, respect, the attention, the time, the place and emotional space where your needs are at the very centre of everything that you and I do.

Clients usually gain great confidence from the frequent insights.  It is 'our' journey where you and I adopt the pace that's right for you.

How soon would you like to connect?

If you message me I will reply on the same day. We can quicky arrange an introductory 20 minute talk on the phone - at no charge.  If you then want to continue with therapy, I will locate the first full session either online or ‘in the therapy room’. It’s whatever you want. I will always respond rapidly to your reaching out to me.

Online sessions are via Skype or Zoom, and face to face sessions - in one of my consulting rooms. Sessions can be arranged quickly – especially when we are ableto be flexible on times.

We can meet in Canterbury and also in Bridge in Kent where comfortable rooms await, warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Online sessions can also be arranged very quickly if you feel you are in a 'crisis'.

Sessions in Canterbury can also be provided quickly but are popular, so some flexibility on times will certainly help.

If contact me today and you will hear back very quickly - often within a couple of hours.

if there is anything at all you need to ask I really will be happy to hear from you. I am confident that you will feel totaly respected and hopefully, really pleased that you decided to make the call or send an email.

All my very best to you.
