I am a member of the BACP, which is the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
I am a volunteer counsellor for a low cost counselling service in Addiscombe.
I am in regular supervision and I am fully insured. I have a current Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) Enhanced Certificate.
I fell into counselling after working for over 20 years with adults and children in the dental industry. I worked as a treatment coordinator for a very busy practice but spoke with adults and children on a one to one basis in my treatment room. I found that lots of patients opened up to me about their feelings around their appearance and I found that giving the patients the time and space to talk, led them to open up about other issues.
I am passionate about providing a place that is confidential and safe, in a non judgemental way. I am a qualified integrative counsellor (integrative means I use different approaches depending on what the client needs).
I am a member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I can offer you the time and space to reflect on difficult feelings. I offer empathy and congruence.
I know that coming to counselling can sometimes feel quite daunting. I can offer you the time and space to help you process difficult feelings, thoughts and experiences in a safe and calm environment.
Please feel free to call me if you wish to have an informal chat or email me if that is more convenient for you. If I do not answer your call, please do leave me a message and I will call you back.
