I am a qualified and registered member of the BACP and an integrated counsellor and psychotherapist meaning I am specifically trained and experienced in working in a variety of ways (different psychological therapies) to best suit my client’s issues whether they relate to current situations and events in your life, or are due to the your past impacting on you now (or both combined!).
No matter who we are, life can get on top of us and feelings that we can’t cope, don’t know where to turn to, hopelessness, distress and anxiety can take hold and sometimes overwhelm us. But there is help, and together we can work out what is going on and find a way forward.
I work for several counselling practices, the NHS and from my own private practice in the centre of Beckenham. I provide a confidential, non-judgemental and supportive space in which we can work things out together. Getting understanding, perspective and clarity on yourself and the issues you face provides us with the platform for change.
I am working more and more with those understandably affected by the pandemic and increased anxiety, low mood and depression, isolation, relationship and family issues as well as the many different types of loss that people are going through and feeling at the moment. If you are being affected by these issues please do get in contact.
My areas of focus are:
- Low self-esteem
- Relationships issues (family or partner problems / coping with separation)
- Feeling stuck, hopeless or lost in life (loss of purpose, motivation and direction)
- Other anxiety and depression related conditions and issues
- Bereavement and grief
- Social isolation / shyness
- Social media and online issues

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.
