About me

I have trained as an Integrative Arts Psychotherapist at the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education (https://artspsychotherapy.org) and I am accredited as a Psychotherapist with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (https://psychotherapy.org.uk). I have over 13 years experience in the field of counselling and psychotherapy gained in private practice, the NHS, primary education and with Employer Assisted Programmes.

I offer one-to-one short term solution focused (minimum 6 weeks) counselling for those looking to address a specific issue, or long term psychotherapy for those who want to undertake a more in-depth exploration of how past patterns of relationships may be impacting current relationships. At times when we feel like life is a struggle and we feel lost, we may rely on unhelpful and unhealthy ways to manage emotionally painful memories and our current distress.

Perhaps it is at these times finding the words to describe how you are feeling or what might be happening for you can also be difficult, and so I may invite you to use an additional medium of creative art as a way of expressing yourself. Of course, you would have the choice of whether or not to use this additional creative form and I would respect this if we agreed to work together.

I am able to offer a confidential therapeutic space to enable you to begin to make sense of your experiences and to help facilitate the changes that you may want to make.

Additionally, I offer clinical supervision to individuals and groups who are seeking to reflect on and discuss their clinical work.

I also offer training and workshops on themes relating to counselling and psychotherapy. These events can be tailored according to the needs of the organisation and/or participants.

I have been a visiting lecturer at the Metropolitan University and a Professional Advisor for YoungMinds (a charity fighting for children and young people's mental health) https://youngminds.org.uk

Further information

Before commencing Counselling or Psychotherapy, I will offer an exploratory session to discuss whether this work is suitable for you. It will give you a chance to ask any questions that may not have been covered in this profile, and it will also give you the opportunity to get to know me and the style in which I work.

Often the way we relate to those around us is based on the past patterns of relating that we have experienced in childhood. There are times in our life when we need a safe and confidential space to begin to explore and make sense of the less helpful experiences and behaviours that can lead to the breakdown of important personal and professional relationships around us. At times this experience can leave us feeling confused and unable to make sense of ourselves. Accessing support through counselling and psychotherapy can help us to gain a deeper understanding of our patterns of relating to ourselves and others, and how they may be changed to enable more fulfilling relationships.

My practice is located within a 10 minute walk from Bromley South Station. It is also served by a range of good local bus services linking Bromley Common, Orpington, Hayes and West Wickham.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
