Areas of Specialism
I have considerable experience working with adults particularly in an NHS setting, G.P surgeries, and within mental health services. I also have extensive experience as a Counsellor working with young people, specifically between the ages of 10-18 years. I have worked in local schools and colleges, in partnership with CAMHS and with young people involved with social care and youth offending teams .
I am an Integrative Counsellor which means I can offer a combined approach to therapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies. I believe this to be an incredibly beneficial way of working, as it enables me to use different approaches according to the needs of the client.
I offer Counselling within Bexley, Sidcup, Swanley, Wilmington and in surrounding areas.
