- Due to Covid-19 I am currently only working on Zoom or Skype.
I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist working in the Croydon and Redhill areas.
You might be finding life difficult, feeling anxious, depressed or experiencing a significant life event such as bereavement, divorce or redundancy. You might feel dissatisfied with your life and want to understand yourself better.
Therapy offers you the opportunity to explore any issues which might be concerning you. I will work with you to explore current and historic life events, feelings, relationships, ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour. This difficult and often emotionally challenging process will help you to more fully understand yourself, ultimately, allowing you to take greater control and live a life that feels more genuine, connected and meaningful.
My approach is psychodynamic: the psychodynamic model holds the view that our current difficulties can have origins in earlier times of our lives, particularly in childhood, and that the mind conceals or retains feelings or memories which may be too painful or difficult for the conscious mind to process. This can be the root cause of many of our difficulties.
I offer short-term and open-ended counselling and psychotherapy to adults of all ages. If you would like to talk about the possibility of starting therapy with me please contact me to organise an initial free 10 minute phone consultation where we can discuss your reasons for seeking therapy and what you might hope to gain. I can also answer questions you may have about the process. If you decide to take things further, ongoing sessions would be weekly at an agreed time for 50 minutes.
I aim to respond to any enquiries within 12 hours.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
