Further information

I am passionate about helping people to resolve the challenges that they may be dealing with or issues which are troubling them. Everyone is unique and I approach each situation with sensitivity giving time and attention to the ways in which different life experiences shape us all. I believe that working together with my clients to address the underlying causes of emotions, feelings or pain experienced in daily life, brings a greater sense of relief and well being.

I work with each person to make sense of how they are feeling and this helps to give my clients a greater choice in how they live their lives.

I also use groups to help people gain a better understanding into how they are feeling, and how they are with others. Group members learn how to reconstruct ways of thinking, being, and interacting  with others in the group and thereby those outside of the group. This form of therapy has proved  helpful in a number of situations, and  has long term benefits.

My consulting rooms are in West Croydon which has good public transport links and also free car parking.
