Rozie Pilkington, MA, MSc, HCPC, BAAT, BPS
My approach is integrative and non-judgmental. My therapy services provide a safe and confidential space for you to evaluate and to better understand yourself through the process of exploration, which can enable a deeper self-awareness, understanding of others, and of the world around us.
My areas of speciality include children, adolescents and adults that have been affected by various mental disturbances including, anxiety and depression; low self-esteem; abuse survivors; learning disabilities; stress management; gender dysphoria/psychosexual challenges and concerns; anorexia and bulimia; self-harm; post-traumatic stress disorder/ false memory; relationship issues; and terminal Illnesses, grief and loss. I also work individually with adopted parents and their new children.
My consulting rooms are located at the Centre for Counselling Bromley. I am available during flexible hours on weekdays and Saturdays. My consulting rooms are located in both central Bromley (BR1) and in Downe Village/Orpington (BR6). The practice is easily accessible from surrounding areas including Beckenham, Bexleyheath, Biggin Hill, Chislehurst, Croydon, Hayes, Orpington, Penge, Petts Wood, Sevenoaks, Shortlands, Westerham, Herne Hill, and Brixton.

Registered / Accredited

Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
