Individual, Couple, Relationship, Pyschosexual Therapy & Clinical Supervision
Central London EC2 and Kent CT5
Thank you for taking time to explore my website.
I offer couple, individual, psychosexual therapy to individuals and couples and clincal supervision to other therapists in central London EC2 (the city, Shoreditch, Old Street, Liverpool Street) and Kent CT5 (Whitstable, near Canterbury, Herne Bay, Faversham)
I have many years of experience working with individuals and couples on a wide range of issues both privately, in other organisations and the NHS. I am a trained and qualified Relationship and Psychosexual Therapist.
I take an integrative approach incorporating a number of therapeutic schools of thought, including humanistic, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
I would be happy to talk to you about your needs as an initial meeting which I would welcome you to attend without commitment. Clients may come with many issues including relationships, sex, bereavement and loss, anxiety, trauma, depression and low mood, loneliness, lack of fulfillment, anger and conflict, intimacy, crisis, shame to name a few.
My consulting rooms in central London and Whitstable, Kent are comfortable and confidential. There is parking available in Whitstable and so driving from Canterbury and the surrounds is a short trip.
Session rates do vary according to whether you choose couples or individual therapy and whether you are seeing me in central London or Kent. Please see the 'Next Steps' page for further details.
I am a member of the following professional bodies and abide by their code of ethics:
British Association Of Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP)
College of Sex and Relationship Therapists (COSRT)
In addition, I work as a Clinical Supervisor offering supervision to psychotherapists and counsellors, whether in training or qualified, as required by their professional body. I hope to add value to and support therapists' professional development. If you are a counsellor or psychotherapist looking for supervision, please feel free to contact me. I supervise therapists privately, at the mental health charity MIND and trainee counsellors at the University of East London.
As well as general supervision, I offer specialist supervision to counsellors and therapists working with couples, relationships and psychosexual issues.
