About me

Life can sometimes feel overwhelming, frustrating and confusing. Going through a bereavement, relationship troubles, problems at work or family/adoption issues can make you feel very sad, lonely and isolated, causing anxiety.
It can sometimes be that a different perspective is achieved by talking through the difficulties, which can change how you feel.
Low self-esteem can impact your view on life. It's at times like this when we may need the help of a therapist.
Together we can explore and achieve a deeper self-awareness so you can feel stronger and face challenges. We will work at your pace helping you to feel comfortable to promote and develop your strengths and weaknesses.
I work in a calm and thoughtful way and will listen to your issues from your perspective, respect the difference and diversity between us, and be honest and open with you.
I have extensive experience as a Bereavement Counsellor at St Christopher's Hospice near Bromley, where I have volunteered for the past few years.
Additionally I am employed in private practice in Orpington, Bromley and surrounding areas.
Please feel free to get in touch and we can discuss the difficulties you are facing
