About Me

I am an accredited counsellor with both BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and the NCS (National Counselling Society). I am a humanistic trained counsellor but have further trained in CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) and am passionate about using CBT for short-term work.

I have had a private practice for over 10 years. I am also a supervisor and I have experience of working with groups.

I have a wealth of experience counselling young people and/or their parents/carers within educational establishments, as well as counselling adults who have private health insurance and also counselling clients from the general public.  I also offer play therapy.

How I can help you

There are times in life when we are faced with difficulties or problems that we cannot manage on our own. 
In my experience, many clients at some point in their life find life a struggle, feel stuck or are experiencing a distressing situation which can leave them feeling overwhelmed and hard to cope. Talking can help you to deal with unwanted or confusing feelings. The counselling relationship is one where the attention is on you, giving you the opportunity to talk about yourself with a professional who is trained to listen skilfully in order to help you explore your feelings and attitudes which may be contributing to your distress.

Sometimes it can be difficult to talk to family or friends about how we are feeling and it can be easier to talk in confidence to a professional who is neutral and non-judgemental. I can help you explore any emotional, personal, sexual or relationship issues at my private practice in Bexley.

I see the aim of counselling as being to help you feel more in control of your life and allow you to live in a way that is more satisfying and productive.

I work in an intuitive, collaborative and integrative way, which is client, led. This allows us to work together and at a pace to suit your needs and issues. My aim is to help you understand what may be going on in your life, look at what you might like to change and empower you to do so. This will allow you to be free of any burdens that you originally came into counselling to address.

I will not judge you or advise you, I will listen to you in a comfortable and confidential environment.

Talking with a qualified and experienced counsellor can help you;

. feel heard and understood
. release bottled up feelings
. explore choices and solutions
. feel better about yourself

Couples counselling can be a useful and safe way to work on the issues that you are having as a couple without the fear of being judged or belittled by each other or your counsellor.

Apart from the training and experience I have I have also had personal experience of therapy and how it can help you to overcome difficulties in your life.
