Hello. I prefer to be called Jazz. I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor, established in Private Practice since 1998. I am based in SHIRLEY, Croydon, Surrey. I also draw clients from surrounding areas such as Beckenham, Bromley, Eden Park, Elmers End, West Wickham, Addington, Crystal Palace, Dulwich, Greenwich, Addiscombe, Streatham, Croydon, Upper Norwood, West Norwood, South Norwood, Herne Hill, Brixton, etc.
I provide both COUPLES COUNSELLING, AND ONE-TO-ONE and also SUPERVISION. Working flexibly, across race, culture, gender, age, sexual orientation and "class", I adapt my approach to suit the uniqueness of the 'relationship' that develops with each person that I work with. I also incorporate the appropriate use of humour to accompany my clients on their journey of CHANGE.
Feel free to click on my website for more about what I offer. See testimonials of what others have said about their individual experiences of working with me.
I LOOK FORWARD TO SPEAKING WITH YOU.
(And if you are feeling at all anxious about the idea of receiving support for YOU through counselling, that simply means you're HUMAN, ok! Please don't allow those feelings or any negative voices inside prevent you from taking that positive step for YOU).
I have just (October 2013) set up a Closed Facebook group 'Sexual Abuse Survivors Empowerment Group'. You or who you refer to the group needs to be on Facebook (or join up!). A 'Closed' Group means nobody but other members of the group can see what we say.
I have created this Group, as a safe place for all who may feel isolated and alone as survivors of sexual abuse and incest. As a survivor myself, I feel passionate about creating this Group where we can uplift each other, move through the toxic SHAME that does NOT belong to us. Together, we intend to uplift each other, have a safe place to vent, provide mutual support, affirmation and encouragement... and also find room to have a laugh!
Feel free to join and spread the word to anyone you feel may benefit from the group.

MY OFFICE IS BASED AT HOME, A BUNGALOW SET IN QUIETER SURROUNDINGS. PARKING IS FREE.
FOR THOSE WITH MOBILITY ISSUES, THERE ARE NO STAIRS TO CONTEND WITH. THE PROPERTY IS A SHORT WALK ALONG A NON-STEEP PATHWAY.
I have recently (October 2013) set up a free Facebook Support Group for survivors of sexual abuse and incest.
I have set up this Group, as a safe place for all who may feel isolated and alone as SURVIVORS of sexual abuse and incest. As a survivor of incest, I feel passionate about creating this Group where we can uplift each other, move through the toxic SHAME that does NOT belong to us. Together we mutually uplift each other and even inject appropriate humour!
