I have worked as a Counsellor
for twenty years now and I have gained a great deal
of knowledge and experience on this journey. I
currently work with clients in my office in the
Dordogne or at home and can meet you in person or we
can talk via skype, Zoom, Whatsapp, Facetime or on
the phone to suit your needs and wishes.
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 internet.
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 am highly experienced on the phone and I have been
working through Health Assured, (an Employment
Assistance Provider) since 2013 with a very high
rate of success and client satisfaction.
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.
I adhere to the BACP code of Ethics www.bacp.com and
of course my
is confidential. I am here to offer a place to talk
and process what is happening so that you can move
forwards again. I offer Counselling and
Coaching for Well Being in the Dordogne at my office
or at home, by phone, Skype, Zoom and Whatsapp.
