About me and my therapy practice
I am a Psychodynamic and CBT (BACP & BABCP) accredited Psychotherapist and a trainee Counselling Psychologist (BPS). I work with a range of emotional and life problems: Anxiety, Depression, work, relationship and marital difficulties.
I work in a collaborative frame and I have a Humanistic philosophy which respects client autonomy and respects the individual's way of being.
I retired from the NHS in 2011 after 17 years of working in Primary Care and Mental Health Psychological Services in East Kent.
I now have a private practice and rent a room in the town centre of Maidstone, Kent. The building has a receptionist and reception area and satisfies confidentiality and security requirements for safe practice.
I have been in private practice for the last 9 years.
My sessions are 50 minutes and payment is at the beginning or end of our time together, on the day; either cash or cheque.
Cancellation is a fee of £5 (to cover room hire) if the cancellation is outside 24 hours notice.
My first session
The first session is an Assessment session in which we have an opportunity to discuss any difficulties and I will take a brief personal history, name, contact numbers etc.
I have a Therapy agreement form which we both sign, if we agree to work together, and outlines fee, time of therapy, BACP ethics, etc. and makes clear my professional relationship with you.
Assessment gives an opportunity to meet and to see if you want to continue.
