About me

I am a qualified Integrative counsellor, personal therapist and supervisor, a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) working privately in Bromley/Beckenham and also working in a general counselling service and at a number of school settings. I offer counselling to people of all ages, from young children, teenagers, adults and older adults.

I have learnt that counselling is implicitly about helping people to discuss better ways of dealing with personal problems from anxiety, bereavement, generalised anxiety disorder and low self esteem both at home and at work and I have observed that no final distinction can be made between a person's work-based/school-based and home-based concerns, since they are inevitably likely to feed into each other.

My work with individual clients varies from short to long term counselling face to face and although I offer counselling across a broad spectrum, I have extensive experience working with:

  • anger
  • anxiety
  • bereavement
  • child related issues
  • depression
  • generalised anxiety disorder
  • personal development
  • self esteem
  • self harm
  • suicidal thoughts

My aim is to encourage clients to explore their feelings, life and problems, in the hope that they will, become easier to understand. My practice is based upon an integrative approach, whereby I blend therapeutic techniques such as CBT ( Cognitive behavioural therapy), Gestalt, Humanistic, Mindfulness, Person Centred and Psychodynamic, according to the specific needs of each client.

I adhere by the Code of Ethics and Practice of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy providing confidentiality in a warm, accepting, therapeutic relationship.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.

I see supervision as a collaborative, professional relationship which helps to promote learning, personal and professional development, self care and ethical practice.
