Bromley Counsellor

About Me

This page describes who I am, my qualifications etc. and tells you something about how I may be able to help if you suffer from depression, anxiety or are concerned about your children’s emotional well-being.

A Bromley counsellor and psychotherapist

I’m a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist based in Bromley and the South East. I've been supporting adults and children since 2002, helping them to improve their relationships and guide them through anxiety and depression. I’m able to offer a comfortable environment that is safe and calm. I’m genuinely interested in what you have to say, and understand how hard it is to find that person you feel you can trust. I offer a caring supportive service; I will listen to your concerns with compassion and patience. This is so important when suffering from depression and anxiety.

To understand more about counselling and what I offer see my Counselling Page.

Counselling experience

Prior to becoming a counsellor and psychotherapist, I worked within the NHS and a number of Social Care settings. I've always enjoyed working and meeting with people from all walks of life, and this experience has supported me in my work as a counsellor and psychotherapist.

I qualified as a Person Centred Counsellor/Psychotherapist in 2002; in 2016 I achieved Senior Accreditation Status. There are many different types of counselling. I offer an approach (the Person Centred approach) that says you are important. The emphasis is about developing a positive relationship with the therapist so you are free to be yourself.

What is Person Centred Counselling?

I’m a therapist who is fully committed to counselling, and I’ve used personal therapy to help me explore my own experiences. I fully understand how daunting this experience may feel, and know what it is to have been a client.

I’ve worked in various settings including schools, social care, private practice and agencies for survivors of abuse. I’ve had many years of experience working with children, adults and people who have complex difficulties.

My profile is also listed on the counselling directory.
