About me

I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor offering individuals and couples a safe and supportive environment to explore difficult feelings and issues.

My role is to provide you with a non judgemental and confidential environment where any issues you bring to our sessions are welcomed with an open mind and an ability to support you with warmth and understanding.

I work with both individuals and couples on all kinds of relationship issues whether you're young or old, straight or gay, a parent or step-parent, single or in a relationship.  It is often our relationship with ourselves that stops us being able to find and enjoy lasting and fulfilling relationships with others. 

We all struggle with relationships at times - especially at more challenging times in our lives such as when we have just had a baby or suffered a bereavement or a job loss.  We often expect our relationship to support and carry all the strain when 'life' happens to us and often it's just too much to ask - I can support you and help you to explore and understand better what is going on and so move towards healing, change and growth. Whatever you're going through ... allow me to go through it with you.

A free initial telephone consultation helps to answer any questions you may have about counselling with me. Evidence shows that the single most important factor in any successful outcome of therapy is the quality of the relationship offered by the counsellor ... in other words do you feel comfortable with me. This initial telephone call gives you an opportunity to speak to me and form an initial impression.

I gained extensive experience working for several years as an honorary counsellor in the voluntary sector at a counselling and social work agency in South East London.

Issues I have worked with include depression and anxiety, bereavement and loss, childhood sexual and emotional abuse, issues of identity, low self esteem and relationship difficulties.

In addition to a BACP Accredited Diploma in Integrative Counselling, I hold a Diploma in Relationship Counselling from RELATE together with a Diploma and Certificates in Counselling Skills.

I am trained in Bereavement Counselling by Bromley Counselling and Bereavement Service. 

I am a RELATE trained couples counsellor and have worked for Relate here in Bromley and in other locations.

Recently I completed an externship at The Bowlby Centre in North London in Emotionally Focussed Couple Therapy - an attachment based model of couples therapy developed in North America.

Ongoing training and continuous professional development is essential to the way I practice - I am currently studying Systemic Practice with Families and Couples at the Institute of Family Therapy in North London

I offer face to face sessions at the Centre for Counselling, Widmore Road, Bromley BR1 3AA @ £55 per session for individuals and £70.00 for couples.


Online sessions are slightly less @ £50 for individuals and £65 for couples.


Please contact me to discuss availability for open ended or short term counselling for individuals and couples.

As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I abide by their ethical framework for good and safe practice in my work as a counsellor.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
