You might feel that your experience at the moment is more like “surviving” rather than really living. If you recognise this struggle in yourself, I would like to help you on your journey from just surviving towards living a more authentic and satisfying life.
At Three Cairns I offer a welcoming, quiet and comforting space to explore whatever's going on for you. The cairns refer to landmarks on a journey; if you'd like to know more, please visit my website.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. This includes holding clients’ information in confidence and ensuring I receive frequent and regular supervision.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been counselling since 2010 and hold a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling from Spurgeon's College, South Norwood. I spent three years counselling at Bromley Community Counselling Service in their long-term service and a year offering brief counselling in the IAPT service at Eden Park Surgery, Beckenham.
I have been running my private practice, Three Cairns Counselling, since summer 2014.
I also offer both individual and couples counselling.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
The assessment session costs the same as all subsequent sessions.
The daytime rate on Tuesday to Friday up to and including the 5pm session is £35 for individuals, £45 for couples.
The evening and Saturday rate is £40 for individuals, £50 for couples.
I have a limited number of spaces available at a reduced rate i.e. a £30 (daytime)/£35 (evening) rate for students and a short-term lower cost space for any individual or couple genuinely unable to pay the full fee. Please mention your need for a reduced rate at the enquiry stage in case these spaces are already filled. Thanks!
I have a non-judgmental, Christian world view and enjoy working with people of any faith as well as people with an atheistic or agnostic viewpoint. I respect each person's individual right to their own beliefs. I am open to discussing issues of faith and spirituality as part of the counselling process if you request this.
