About me

Our minds can be dark places at times. We can't outrun ourselves no matter how hard we can try. As a counsellor, I can help you deal with these difficult times by giving you a safe, confidential space to explore your emotions and make sense of a world that doesn't stop for anyone.

My main body of experience has come from working in relapse prevention counselling with CGL Bromley. During my 2 years of work there, I have helped clients deal with problems both surrounding and extending beyond their addiction, such as:

  • Anxiety.
  • Depression.
  • Relationship troubles both platonic and romantic.
  • Self-esteem.
  • Bereavement.

Having been on both sides of the therapeutic relationship, I know how difficult it can be to decide on a counsellor. If you make contact, we can arrange an initial consultation where we will explore what's going on for you at the moment and what you may want to get out of counselling. I offer an empathic environment, free of judgement.

“The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago; the second best time is now.” - Chinese proverb.

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.
