My name is Holly, I am a qualified and experienced UKCP and BACP registered psychotherapist and counsellor working on the borders of Bromley and Croydon. I am warm and empathetic and aim to create a relaxed and safe environment where we can work together to enable you to enhance your life and live it more fully.
I provide long or short term therapeutic services (to suit your needs), to both individuals and couples. Therapy is helpful because it provides a unique, safe and confidential space to explore whatever issues you may be experiencing in your life.
Therapy can help with many different issues. You may benefit if you feel blocked and want a better understanding of who you are, or the experiences you've had. You may have reached a point where you are struggling with a life event or having issues with certain relationships. You may be feeling anxious or depressed.
My West Wickham counselling practice is a 5 minute walk from West Wickham mainline station (serving Charing Cross, Cannon Street and London Bridge) and is easily accessible to surrounding areas including: Croydon, Bromley, Orpington, Sydenham, Penge, Beckenham, Shirley, Elmers End, Eden Park and Hayes via local bus routes.
There is plenty of unrestricted on-road parking.
Training, qualifications & experience
After completing a Diploma in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling, I trained in Transactional Analysis at Metanoia Institute and graduated with an MSc in Psychotherapy from Middlesex University.
In my private practice I work with issues ranging from depression, anxiety and trauma. My experience also includes working within an NHS mental health team, various mental health agencies and 5 years as a bereavement counsellor at a local hospice (near Bromley).
I am a registered member of both the BACP and the UKCP.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
