Kevin Power, MA, PG Dip Group Psych, Hon. IGA, UKCP reg.
I am fully qualified and experienced in psychodynamic psychotherapy and counselling for individuals in one-to-one and group settings, based near Canterbury in Kent. I provide a contained and safe place to explore current life problems, how they impact on your daily life and how they may link with past events or trauma. My approach is flexible and draws from a wide range of practice and theory in psychoanalytic and psychodynamic therapy. All contact is confidential. Get in touch with me by phone or e-mail when we can discuss what you are looking for in psychotherapy/counselling. Then, if you decide, we can arrange a first meeting and see how you feel and respond to this. If we seem able to work together for you we can book further sessions.
Please see my website for further details of psychotherapy and counselling, individual and group (link beside the photo).
