About me and my therapy practice

As well as counselling for anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, suicidal feelings and many other issues, I specialise in supporting men and women who have survived childhood abuse of all types, bereavement and relationships.  I am also a Relate trained and qualified couples counsellor.

Abuse can be sexual, emotional, physical or relational and neglect is also a form of abuse. My experience of supporting survivors of child sexual abuse includes two years on the NAPAC helpline ( and over three years at a counselling agency which supports men and women who want to understand and work through the effects of abuse.   Abuse is traumatising at any age and I also work with people who have experienced abusive relationships as an adult.  If you are a man I acknowledge that you may find it hard to ask for help, but looking for support is a strength and not a weakness. 

I was a bereavement counsellor for several years.  An unresolved bereavement can cause many issues, particularly when a child suffers the death of a parent, but the death of anybody close can be devastating at any age, especially the death of a child (or unborn child), sudden death and bereavement by suicide.

I trained as a relationship counsellor because I could see how life experiences impact relationships.  I can provide a safe place where individuals (who may or may not have a partner) and couples can talk about their relationships.  

I have a small office a few minutes walk from Beckenham Junction station.  Please see my website for more information about me and my rates for sessions.
