About me

Making that decision to ask for professional help is a big one and then you need to decide which counsellor to choose. It is a very personal choice, as you want to feel understood and encouraged by an experienced counsellor who will have the confidence to guide you to your goals.

At the heart of my philosophy is the idea that by creating a safe and thoughtful space, it is possible for us to work through the issues or challenges that you are facing. I believe passionately that every human being has *what it takes” within them to live a life of their own choosing and have worked with people from all walks of life and ages. Using my skills gained from from than 30 years of counselling I will enable you to explore whatever it is that is troubling you and will bring compassion and depth to the counselling.

I use a wide variety of tools including some CBT  methods and life coaching methods.

I may challenge you as a counsellor, but I aim to do this within a framework of acceptance, trust and rapport and I work with the belief that ultimately you the client have the solutions within yourself, but you might need some support in order to find them. I also work with humour (where appropriate).

Who have I helped

Over the years I have worked with a wide variety of people:

  • children and adolescents
  • the elderly
  • people with learning difficulties
  • professionals working within the care sector

  • anxiety and depression
  • low self esteem
  • a sense of loss of direction or purpose
  • trauma
  • negative thinking
  • bullying
  • domestic violence
  • suicidal thoughts

Further information

What happens next

When you call me, we would make an appointment to meet. The first meeting is an assessment. It normally lasts 1 hour 30 minutes. This is a mutual process where we map out the key areas that you feel need attention, where I get a sense of the bigger picture of your life and what may have brought you to counselling. This first meeting is about getting clarity and focus as well as you being able to have a space to say what needs to be said.

I offer short term ( 6 or 12 sessions) and longer term work. I would want us to review the work we are doing together every 12 weeks.

I have a brief working agreement which we could discuss at our first meeting.

I counsel in 2 locations: 1) Selhurst, Croydon CR0 2EN ( 15 minutes from East Croydon Station or Selhurst Station ) 2) Godalming, Surrey GU7 1NT
