The counselling room is in a discreet location and outside of the home; so no disturbances from others i.e. family members. It's comfortable enough for 1:1 therapy, but also spacious enough to facilitate couple and small family/group sessions.
I believe the client-counsellor relationship is of the utmost importance in achieving positive results during therapy and I offer an initial meeting of 50 minutes @ £40, so that you can decide whether I am the right counsellor for you. There is no obligation to make a contract at this time. Call 07850 445499 or 01689 861905 if you prefer to have a brief discussion first.
I am a fully qualified Therapeutic Counsellor, practising in the Orpington/Bromley borough area (10 minutes' walk from Orpington High Street and 15 minutes by car from Central Bromley), although I also cover clients from the wider South East London and Kent areas, including: Beckenham, Biggin Hill, Tatsfield, Cudham, Coney Hall and West Wickham.
My experience includes 10 years within SLAM (South London & Maudsley) NHS Foundation Trust in London. This work involved working with patients suffering with eating disorders, depression, anxiety, self-harm, abuse, PTSD, suicidal ideation, OCD, panic disorders, childhood trauma, bereavement, alcohol dependency and personality disorders, amongst other struggles. This work was undertaken through 1:1, Group and Family therapy. During this time I also received one year's training at the Institure of Psychiatry, studying Systemic (Family/Couple/Group/ Relationship) therapy.
I am told that I have a welcoming and personable nature and can relate to all types of people.
I believe that every individual is unique and important and has the right to be heard and supported when struggling with mental health problems, whether these be long or short-term. Hence the reason for my passion in working to provide a safe, genuine, non-judgemental space for you, my client, to explore and work through such difficulties, gaining insight and clarity, enabling you to find answers and peace of mind for short-term issues, or more positive ways to manage your mental health with long-term struggles.
