About me

I am trained in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and work with people individually. I offer both long term and short term work. Please do contact me to discuss an initial consultation where we can think together about what you want from a period of therapy. 

I have worked in the NHS for twenty years, in various settings within secondary and tertiary care. I see people in three locations in Kent, Canterbury, Maidstone and Romney Marsh. I have also been working online during these difficult recent months. I have a sliding scale of fees for trainees and students. 

Training, qualifications & experience

Twenty years in the NHS in settings from addiction services to 15 years within secondary care psychological services. Running groups for those with a diagnosis of personality disorder and other seeing people with complex emotional difficulties.
