About me and my therapy practice

Counsellor and psychotherapist offering a safe place to explore any issue in confidence. With over 20 years experience in the NHS and other organisations, I am always happy to answer any questions you might have about counselling or psychotherapy.  Maybe you are struggling with a difficult life event or are feeling stuck in ways of thinking that are not helpful to you. It can be helpful to explore this in a confidential and safe setting, without feeling judged. I aim to be supportive and to listen with great care, so that together we can find what you need to move forward in a more positive way. 

Registered and accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I am also a UKCP registered psychotherapist, and have 20 years experience of working in various settings including the NHS and Employee Assistance Programmes. I now also have a small private practice, working from a large office on the ground floor of a house in Ramsgate from 11am - 7.30pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

 I work according to the BACP code of ethics and practice, and have full indemnity insurance and an enhanced DBS certificate. I am also a registered clinical supervisor. 

Please contact me by email for more details, or to arrange a telephone call to discuss further.

About me and my therapy practice

I enjoy working as a supervisor and have wide experience in a variety of different settings, including the NHS and private practice.  I've been registered as a clinical supervisor with the UKCP since 2010.  I'm happy working with newly qualified counsellors or with experienced psychotherapists. 

My main training is as a psychodynamic counsellor and an integrative psychotherapist, but I also use CBT and creative therapies in my work. Most often, I work with individuals, but I have also facilitated supervision groups. In the past, I've worked as an external supervisor for a wide range of organisations. Past experience includes work with children and I have particular experience in working with adults diagnosed with personality disorders, and with issues around stress management, bereavement, trauma and abuse. I also have an interest in secondary counter-transference and in supporting therapists with self-care. If you would like to talk further, do get in touch.
