About Val

Professional membership

I am an Accredited Counsellor with the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and adhere to their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. This framework includes holding clients' information in confidence and ensuring I receive frequent and regular supervision.

Counselling training and experience

I began counselling in 2010 whilst studying for a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling at Spurgeon's College, South Norwood. Since then I have undertaken many short courses including working with couples and various trauma-related training events. In 2017 I began training in Parks Inner Child Therapy, qualifying in 2018 as a PICT Practitioner.

Initially I spent three years counselling at Bromley Community Counselling Service followed by a year at Eden Park Surgery, Beckenham. I have also worked as a sessional counsellor at CFC, South Croydon. I set up Three Cairns Counselling in the spring of 2014 and really enjoy working in private practice.

I work with adults (age 18 and over) who have issues such as:
  • anxiety
  • bereavement
  • childhood sexual and non-sexual abuse
  • couples facing difficulties
  • depression
  • looking for meaning in life
  • losses and fear of loss
  • low self esteem
  • obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • relationship difficulties
  • spiritual issues
  • trauma and its effects
  • unwanted, intrusive thoughts
If your issue is not listed, please feel free to come and discuss it at assessment.

A personal note

I have a non-judgmental, Christian world view and enjoy working with people of any faith as well as people with an atheistic or agnostic viewpoint. I respect each person's individual right to their own beliefs. I am open to discussing issues of faith and spirituality as part of the counselling process if you request this.
