Janet Angela Hand

Member Status: Accredited

Member No: NCS17-05558

Location: New Romney

I live in Ramsgate in Kent having lived and worked in London most of my life. I started out as a choreographer and become an academic in the arts with an expertise in Psychoanalytic Theory. I received Psychotherapy myself following a traumatic experience and then again following bereavement. I retrained from a commitment to wellbeing following an extended relocation to Saudi Arabia where I was a Professor of Language and Translation. In my experience, Cultural Difference and expectation plays a significant role in both wellbeing and educational performance.

    I have a Professional Diploma in Integrative Counselling (Distinction, Thoros), a Postgraduate Cert. in Psychodynamic Counselling (Oxford University), a Master in Psychoanalytic Studies (Distinction, University of Kent, Canterbury), and a Doctorate in Psychoanalytic Studies (Canterbury).
