About me

I practice as an experienced counsellor and therapist in Canterbury and I can help with a range of difficulties, personal, relational, work and social issues, in complete confidence.

You might have some issues managing your relationships, coping with anxiety, exploring your goals, interpreting dreams, improving your confidence and self-esteem, reducing social fears. I have had extensive NHS experience over 20 years, since qualifying at Goldsmiths College, University of London; and with further NHS postgraduate training at the Institute of Psychiatry and at the University of Kent.

I have had some considerable mental health experience, and this can often be helpful. I have been a NHS crisis team manager, a clinical nurse specialist in liaison psychiatry, worked for CAMHS (children's services) and have provided counselling for GP surgeries. I have some specialism in working with both mental and co-existent physical health problems.

I now in private practice and can offer home visits if there are difficulties getting into Canterbury. I can offer CBT and also psychodynamic and Jungian approaches to therapy. This can include home visits.

My own interests are gardening, Carl Jung, George Orwell, and writing.
