About me

I am a Senior Accredited counsellor with ten years experience of working with clients in GP surgeries, a long term counselling service, in a specialist trauma service and in my private practice in the centre of Beckenham.

I am an integrative counsellor which means that I combine different models of therapy in a managed way to provide counselling to meet the needs over a wide range of issues.

I believe in providing an environment in which you will feel comfortable to explore whatever is currently causing you distress. If you have any particular questions about the therapy I offer then please feel free to call me on my dedicated counselling mobile.

I have experience in working successfully with anxiety in its various forms, including panic attacks, depression, bereavement and family or relationship issues including divorce and affairs. I have worked with workplace issues including work related stress, bullying and harrassment.

I also have considerable experience of working with adult survivors of childood abuse, domestic abuse and sexual violence and have specialist additional training in these areas and have worked sucessfully with clients who have trauma (PTSD and associated issues) arising from this.
