Beverley is a UKCP registered psychoanalytic psychotherapist who divides her time between private practice and as a Consultant Psychotherapist in the NHS. She works with a full range of complex mental health issues in her private practice based in Whitstable which 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.
Short term counselling will focus on the problem in the here and now and seek to find a solution through making sense of the core conflict.
Long term individual psychotherapy provides an effective treatment for a range of psychological disorders, both as a treatment in its own right and as an adjunct to other forms of treatment. 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.
Relationship therapy will focus on the problem within the couple relationship and help to understand and resolve the couple difficulties.
She has a specialist interest in OCD with particular reference to the connection between attachment difficulties, problems with sexual intimacy and OCD symptoms.
Beverley also has a keen interest in Dissociative Identity Disorder and has experience of working with this complex presentation and helping the individual to understand their symptoms and lead a more fulfilling, whole life.
