I am a fully insured, qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor running a private practice in Beckenham and Penge offering both short-term and long-term therapy.

In addition to my private practice, I also volunteer as a therapist at Mind in Croydon, working with clients of all ages with a range of issues including bereavement, stress, anxiety, anger, and depression.

Mind provide their volunteers with continuing personal development on a regular basis, this includes working creatively, in different ways, with visual therapy this can be more (rewarding) for some clients who find it hard to open up about issues they may not want to face.

I also volunteer for Living Well, Bromley, offering counselling to the homeless and those in need at Holy Trinity Church, Penge.
