Given the latest government advice all sessions will be offered online. I have ten years of experience of working in this way and I am happy to give you guidance to set this up. You will need an internet connection (preferably high speed), a headset and microphone. I can also offer telephone sessions but face to face via an online platform is preferable. Psychotherapy is about being listened to and seen in a particular way. There is nowhere else in life that offers a time and space to focus on your 'self' - your body and your mind. My Kent practice is in the village of Bridge near Canterbury and is easy to reach.

Too many people still think they need to "suffer in silence". There's a strongly-held belief, especially among men, that it's not OK to talk about emotions, about problems in relationships, or about those moments when we feel overwhelmed. I've worked with many clients who come to counselling as a last resort, not really believing it can help them. But thousands of people out there have found that talking does make a difference. If you've been wondering whether it could make a difference for you, contact me for an introductory appointment, to see whether counselling is right for you.

Often these experiences continue to impact on our lives and abilities to make and sustain healthy and emotionally secure relationships in adulthood. Although psychoanalytically trained my clinical practice uses a range of therapeutic approaches and is predominately informed by attachment based theory. I can offer both short and longer term therapeutic support to individuals, couples and groups.

This last year has been uniquely challenging! The pandemic and the lockdowns may have impacted your mental health, wellbeing or self-esteem or highlighted your existing issues. You may be experiencing increased stress or anxiety. Your work or studies may have been more demanding. Your relationships with your partner, family or friends may have suffered or you feel sad, lonely or isolated. Do you feel you want to make sense of things or find a way to manage? Perhaps you realise that you want to make some changes in your life. Counselling is an amazing and beneficial process. I hope that I can support and be with you on this journey.

Life can be challenging; navigating relationships and attempting to get our emotional needs met. Sometimes we can have an ongoing feeling of unease or sadness or have specific fears related to facing particular people or situations. We can worry about what other people are thinking about us and what we have said or done. Or we can question who we really are. Often these worries can keep us awake at night, or stop us from doing things we have previously enjoyed or would like to try. We can know in our heart that life could be better but can feel stuck and unable to work out what we need to feel more content and self-accepting.

We are all unique but our shared humanity means that we all struggle.With over 40yrs experience of working in mental health I have learnt that one of the most helpful interventions for a human in distress is to help them clarify their values and to use this information as leverage to facilitate the inevitable behavioural change that is needed for a life lived well. I have found that combining CBT with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) promotes symptom reduction but also helps patient's to reconnect with what is important in their lives. If you're reading this I'm guessing you're feeling stuck-maybe I can help with that.

If you want to make changes in your life then counselling is one of the most effective ways to do it... and I will help you along the way, walking alongside you, giving you support. It is a great privilege for me - and I deeply value the vulnerable person (within all of us) that counselling helps to find the courage to reveal. I work with kindness, warmth and respect, and our relationship will become strong - yet I will challenge you - but in a caring and gentle way.
