About me

Credentials
I am a UKCP registered Transactional Analyst 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.

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.
