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 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 (www.napac.org.uk) and over three years at a counselling agency which supports men and women who want to work through the effects of abuse.   Abuse is traumatic at any age so I also work with people who have experienced abuse (including 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 have been a bereavement counsellor for several years.  An unresolved bereavement can cause a lot of 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 with Relate because I could see how life impacts relationships and I can provide a safe place where individuals and couples can talk about their relationships.  I am not gay but I enjoy working with same sex couples.

I have a small office a few minutes from Beckenham Junction station.  Please see my website for information about fees.
