About me

Credentials
I am a fully qualified UKCP registered psychotherapist and clinical supervisor. I have run a private practice since 2006 seeing adults, children, families, couples and groups. I belong to the European Association of Transactional Analysis and the International Association of Relational Transactional Analysis.

What I offer
I offer a relational space where you can express your concerns and talk through what troubles you. Most of my work is one to one, which my clients find effective. I also work with couples who need relationship support or those who are thinking about separating and need help to move on. I do group work, which is for any situation where two or more people need psychological or emotional support. Group therapy provides a supportive environment for those who find being in social situations difficult whether at home, work or with friends. My practice is general, which means I can work with most presenting problems.

Workshops
I run personal development workshops, for which you can hire me on an ad hoc basis. Details of all my workshops are on my website and FaceBook page both called Maidstone Therapy.

Accredited register membership

UK Council for Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have recently worked with families to help them through stressful times with their children. A combination of play therapy, educational therapy, and parent coaching has proven effective in resolving their difficulties. This consists of family group time with me, in which I use a structured approach that includes, group discussion, activities and role play. It can be great fun and at the same time, enlightening and healing for all family members.

I am currently working with couples who are ending their relationships, to help them make an emotional decision about what they want. This consists of one to one sessions and couple sessions to assist them in ending their time together and to think about what they each want for their lives going forward. This constitutes a facilitated ending, where couples can then make the next steps towards formalising their separation.

Further information

It is easy to think that a therapist might already be busy working with other people and sometimes we are! However, you are important enough to involve the help of a professional, no matter how large or small the problem may seem.

You can call me at any time to ask about therapy and how it can help you. Do leave a message and I will call you back the same day.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
