About me

I am a qualified Integrative counsellor and supervisor, a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) working privately in Bromley/Beckenham and also working in a general counselling service and at a number of school settings. I offer counselling to people of all ages, from young children, teenagers, adults and older adults.

I have learnt that counselling is implicitly about helping people to discuss better ways of dealing with personal problems from anxiety, bereavement, generalised anxiety disorder and low self esteem both at home and at work and I have observed that no final distinction can be made between a person's work-based/school-based and home-based concerns, since they are inevitably likely to feed into each other.

My work with individual clients varies from short to long term counselling either face to face or via SKYPE and although I offer counselling across a broad spectrum, I have extensive experience working with:

  • anger
  • anxiety
  • bereavement
  • child related issues
  • depression
  • generalised anxiety disorder
  • personal development
  • self esteem
  • self harm
  • suicidal thoughts

My aim is to encourage clients to explore their feelings, life and problems, in the hope that they will, become easier to understand. My practice is based upon an integrative approach, whereby I blend therapeutic techniques such as CBT ( Cognitive behavioural therapy), Gestalt, Humanistic, Mindfulness, Person Centred and Psychodynamic, according to the specific needs of each client.

I adhere by the Code of Ethics and Practice of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy providing confidentiality in a warm, accepting, therapeutic relationship.
