About me

I am a fully qualified counsellor / psychotherapist, providing confidential counselling and coaching support. I have successfully supported individuals, couples and young people to achieve meaningful and lasting change in their lives.

I can support with resolving and improving psychological, emotional and life issues, some of which may stem from current or past experiences, relationships, trauma, anxiety and depression.

I work empathically, professionally and confidentially in supporting clients to explore, gain insight and work through difficulties. This therapeutic process is rewarding, challenging and transformative and often leads to improved well-being, psychological health, relationships and self-awareness. Many clients describe the work of therapy as life changing. 

Sessions offer strategies, practical approaches and challenge to move towards desired therapy outcomes and change. This approach has worked well in addressing issues including anxiety, depression, loss of direction/life satisfaction and relationship difficulties.

I offer short term therapy and ongoing  for more in-depth work. 

My consulting rooms are located at East Croydon CR0 (near the station) and Sydenham.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
