About me

COVID 19 - UPDATE: With effect from Monday 23 March, I will only be offering online or telephone sessions to new and existing clients. As soon as it is safe to do so, I will resume face to face sessions.

I have several years experience of working with clients online and although it may seem strange at first, I can assure you that you soon get used to it, relax and forget that you aren't in the same room as each other.

We can use Skype, Zoom or just a telephone call, which ever suits you best. If you need any help setting this up on your phone or tablet, please let me know and I will be happy to talk you through it before the session starts.

I will resume face to face sessions as soon as it is safe to do so.

INTEGRATIVE AND CBT COUNSELLOR (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)

It takes courage to make the first step towards having counselling. Life can be complex and we all hit points where we really can't see the woods through the trees, I can help you to work this out in a safe and comfortable setting. When I trained I wanted to learn many of the theories as everybody is different and whilst one theory might work for one person it may not suit another. I am a qualified Integrative counsellor which means I have knowledge of various theories allowing me to find one that works for you, I also work with CBT if requested. I have a special interest in working with stress and anxiety.

Maybe you are struggling with relationship or family issues, or work isn't going too well, perhaps you have health problems or have low self-esteem. Counselling could help you understand these problems and work with them in a more constructive way. Sometimes we simply just get stuck at a point in our lives and don't feel happy - I could help you to see exactly what is going on, or simply give you a chance to talk and to be heard.

I offer daytime and evening appointments and work with adults and couples. I work from clinics in Sanderstead and Coulsdon in Surrey and Sevenoaks and West Wickham in Kent.

People come to counselling for a wide range of issues including:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety and stress

  • Relationship difficulties

  • Family difficulties

  • Phobias

  • Panic attacks

  • Lack of confidence and self esteem

  • Work problems

  • Personal development

Seeing a counsellor could help you look at what is going on in your life and help you to find the answers that you need.

You can talk about anything that is worrying you in a respectful and confidential setting. I would welcome the opportunity to work with you, to help you work through the difficulties and look at the choices open to you. Having a chance to talk about things with someone who has no other place in your life can often help.

Sessions last 50 minutes and are usually weekly. If you are not sure about counselling, you are welcome to phone to discuss this with me.

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.
