I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist based in the coastal town of Broadstairs. My work here follows a successful career in central London providing therapy for a wide range of difficulties.
My method is 'integrative' which means I combine various theoretical perspectives such as Humanistic, Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and CBT. This makes for better choices and greater flexibility.
This approach involves working together to find the best possible outcome for you. Our partnership is vital for success. Research and experience consistently support this.
Our work can explore any of your concerns. These may include issues with anger, abuse, panic attacks, addiction, shame, sadness and depression.
I also offer help with:
Anxiety - Identifying causes that are preventing you from leading a healthier life.
Self-Care - Examining confidence, worthiness and ability to convey your needs to others.
Relationships - Exploring behaviour and entanglement issues with partners, family and/or friends.
Identity and Sexuality - Understanding who you are and what you need.
Well-being and happiness are possible. It sometimes just needs a little hope and the right professional support.
