About me

Counselling in Bromley for depression, anxiety, bereavement and abuse

I am a fully qualified accredited counsellor registered with the BACP.  I have been working as a counsellor for over 10 years in private practice and for organisations such as North Kent MIND as well as private healthcare companies who offer emotional wellbeing and counselling to national businesses to support their employees.  This is known as the Employee Assistance Programme.

How can counselling help you?

From time to time you may experience situations where you feel you are not coping as well as you usually do.  This could be the result of a life event, past or present, such as abuse, bereavement, redundancy, divorce/separation, retirement, or relationship difficulties. As your counsellor we work together to explore the problem and develop strategies and techniques to move forward and support you with your daily life or significant life events.

You deserve to get better

I am an integrated counsellor which means that I have access to a range of tools and techniques to adapt to your current issue.

​I will provide you with a safe, confidential and supportive environment in which to build on your strengths to create the changes you need.

​These issues may be to do with the present or sometimes more to do with past difficult experiences that may stem from childhood. Counselling can help you look at these issues with new perspectives.

I also have experience of working in schools as a counsellor with teenagers and young people on a variety of issues including abuse, anxiety, self harm, eating difficulties and depression.

Please don't feel embarrassed

How you feel is normal; choosing the right counsellor for you is important and our first session will be used to build a trusted safe space to develop a productive and supportive relationship.

When you have sessions with me you will experience

  • a confidential safe space
  • honesty
  • respect and understanding
  • non-judgemental

Further information

Counselling teenagers and young people

Teenagers and young people are still developing and struggle to find the words to express themselves especially when going through puberty when they are no longer a child but are not an adult.

Young people have problems too!

Whether your child is suffering from depression, bullying, exam stress, eating disorder, self harm or sexual abuse give me a call on 07752 809726 or send me email to make an appointment.
