About me

Have you wanted to address your problems for a while but felt unsure about taking that first step? I will work with you at your own pace, creating a safe and confidential environment in which we can work through the issues you are facing.

I am a fully insured, qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor running a private practice in Beckenham and Penge offering both short-term and long-term therapy.

I work for Living Well, Bromley, as psychotherapeutic counsellor offering counselling to the residents of Bromley and Penge areas.

I also volunteer as a therapist at Mind in Croydon, working with clients of all ages with a range of issues including bereavement, stress, anxiety, anger, and depression.

Mind provide their volunteers with continuing personal development on a regular basis, this includes working creatively, in different ways, with visual therapy this can be more (rewarding) for some clients who find it hard to open up about issues they may not want to face.

Please contact me by email to arrange a consultation by phone or online to see if you are happy to work together. If you would like to continue, we can discuss counselling sessions to suit your availability.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
