You may have been thinking about therapy for yourself for some time now. If you are reading this you will have already begun to embark on an ‘inner’ journey towards a greater understanding of self, your relationships, past and present, and issues of concern that may be having an adverse impact on your life right now.
Thinking about therapy and making that first contact with the Therapist is a big ‘first step’ whether a first-time user or returning to therapy after a break. Talking in confidence to a Therapist offers new insights into your situation, the opportunity to work through painful memories in which you may feel ‘stuck, gain an understanding about destructive patterns in relationships as well as being better able to manage ongoing anxieties, negative thinking patterns, depressive thoughts and feelings and any ongoing concerns.
Why not get in touch by telephone, text or email for an initial meeting to talk about any of the above in a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space and at the same time find out whether or not you would like to think about continuing for us to work together.
I am an experienced Psychodynamic Psychotherapist of over 20 years, having completed a four-year core training in Psychotherapy at WPF Therapy in London. I also undertook a further one-year in-depth training, also at WPF Therapy, London. I am UKCP registered/accredited and licenced to work with clients offering long-term therapy, (in agreed once or twice weekly therapy sessions), and short-term therapy with adult clients over the age of 18, coming from a variety of backgrounds. I am experienced in working therapeutically with undergraduate Psychodynamic Psychotherapy trainees at a renowned London institution throughout the period of their training, and beyond. I am currently working on line via Zoom. Face to face, my practice is located within easy reach of the sea and the beautiful Ramsgate Royal Harbour, whilst Ramsgate Station is a just short walk/bus ride away.
I have an extensive and varied clinical background working within London based NHS Trusts, in addition to Leadership/Management in Public Health NHS, including working at post graduate level with Universities and teaching/training NHS specialist public health clinicians.

I also work with parents who experience loss during this this time, including the experience of loosing their baby.
