JAZZ (CAROL) GORDON MBACP. Accred.
Thanks for visiting my profile.
I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor, established in Private Practice since 1997. 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 COUNSELLING FOR INDIVIDUALS AND COUPLES AS WELL AS CLINICAL SUPERVISION FOR COUNSELLORS AND COUNSELLING SUPERVISORS. My approach adapts to 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.

I LOOK FORWARD TO SPEAKING WITH YOU.
