Marriage Counselling Canterbury & Whitstable
My name is Dr Beverley Mears (MCLIN, SCI) and I’m a relationship therapist based at Marriage Counselling Canterbury and Whitstable practices. I’m also a UKCP registered ‘Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist’ alongside being an experienced couples counsellor.
I’m involved in the training and supervision of couple counsellors and a listed pratictioner in ‘Couple Therapy for Depression’, accredited by the ‘British Society of Couple Psychotherapists and Counsellors’ (BSCPC).
My specialist interest is in the relationship between how OCD affects the couple intimate relationship. My doctoral thesis was investigating the connection between problems with sexual intimacy, the early attachment relationship and OCD.
I bring my understanding of attachment theory and relationship scripts to my work with couples. Which means I seek to develop improved communication and understanding within the couple relationship. I have a specialist interest in how attachment wounds from the past impact upon couple intimacy.
How I can help
My warm, professional approach will help you both feel comfortable and relaxed. Therefore, you should feel more at ease to open up and discuss the problems in your relationship from your perspective. Most importantly, there will be equal opportunity for you both to talk and to be heard. We will then work together to help you find a more positive way forward.
My work experience is diverse across mixed cultures, same same relationships, families and friendships. Any type of relationship can experience problems. However, with the right help and support these issues can be resolved.
I subscribe to and work within the UKCP code of ethics and the BACP ethical framework. I also undertake regular professional development and supervision as well as having professional indemnity insurance.
