About me and my therapy practice

I offer counselling in Canterbury and by home visit. I have a counselling and extensive mental health background.

 I have practiced in the NHS for around 20 years, as a mental health crisis team manager, as a liaison psychiatry clinical specialist, and as a psychological therapist in GP surgeries and clinics. 

I originally trained at Goldsmiths College, University  of London, on their postgraduate counselling training; and at a London psychotherapy centre. I also have an MSc in Mental Health and have trained psychiatric nurses. 

I have had subsequent NHS training in cognitive behavioural therapy and attended the Institute of Psychiatry for enhanced clinical skills as an NHS management trainee. 

 I have practiced in GP surgeries offering psychological therapy for a wide-range of mental health problems; and have helped clients with related physical health problems. I have received very many valued testimonials valuing my input. 

I have worked at the Behavioural disorders Unit at the Bethlem Royal hospital and offer help with OCT and behavioural difficulties such as Aspergers. 

I can now offer EMDR - a popular therapy for trauma and dissociation. 

 I can offer home therapy for those with trouble getting out. I have full insurance and DBS clearance and i am registered under the Nursing and Midwifery Council and BACP.
