My consulting room is in a quiet cul-de-sac in the centre of St.Margaret's-At-Cliffe near Dover. I am situated close to the main bus services from Dover, Folkestone and Canterbury. Here, I can offer you a confidential setting where we can think together about issues that are troubling you. I have experience of working with a wide range of people on issues such as anxiety, mood disorder and problems with relationships.

Training, qualifications & experience
I worked in education for many years before training to become a psychotherapist. I have been seeing patients for around 6 years and recently set up in Private Practice in 2014. Please see the website (above)*for further information.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
