|I offer a bespoke
service and during the initial consultation I can
outline the approaches I am trained in and we can then
look at how best to work together. You may be needing
just a couple of sessions to help you get back on your
way, but then it could be that you would like time to
grow and work with me for a longer period of time.
I first trained in France in Lacanian Psychoanalysis and
then on returning to the UK in 2001 went on to study for
an Integrative Counselling Diploma.
I have been in Private Practice since 1996 to 2001 in
the Dordogne and then from 2005 until 2019 in Kent as
well as offering services by telephone or via the
I went on to spend 8 years working with clients referred
to Counselling and Psychological Therapy through their
GP in Primary Care in East Kent. Many clients have made
a really good progress with a short term approach and
said that the service I provided made a real difference
to their lives.
I followed this with 5 years as a University Counsellor
at Canterbury Christchurch with students of all ages,
nationalities and walks of life.
I have developed my approach
through extensive training to be able to support clients
with a whole range of reasons for seeking counselling. I
am qualified in EMDR, Interpersonal Psychotherapy for
Depression as well as having CBT training. I use these
skills combined with my deeper knowledge of our human
frailties gained from my initial deeper training in
psychoanalysis in France.
