About me

Hello again, thanks for clicking on my profile.

I have been in private practice for many years, listening to clients discuss their feelings around depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss. Through talking, this has helped clients understand themselves.

I know entering counselling can be very nerve racking. As part of my training, to become a counsellor, I have had many years of therapy to understand me, and I can honestly say it is one of the best things I've ever done. My own counselling experience will allow me to explore with you and help you come to an understanding about yourself.

Some clients think I have the ability to read their minds...... I don't. Some think I have all the answers........I don't, but together we explore what is going on for you, which will hopefully lead you to finding your own answers. Others
think I will give them advice........another thing I will not do as your experience is completely unique to you and any advice given could lead to a negative outcome for you.
What I will offer you though is a safe space, which is non judgmental and in full confidentiality. I will always be there for you, for as long as you require the space to talk.

Please contact me if you have any further questions. I hope to hear from you soon.

Kind regards

Jason

Experience

I have been in private practice for many years and work from my family home in Selsdon, South Croydon, CR2 8SR where I offer a safe, non-judgmental and confidential environment. This allows my clients the ability to explore their feelings.

I have worked as a counsellor at Evolve Housing + Support (formerly South London YMCA) where I had a weekly practice. I worked with adult clients with many complex issues.

I have also worked as a counsellor at Turning Point (Croydon Recovery Network). Here I work with adults with addictions contemplating the first steps of recovery to change in their lives. I also assist clients who have a unhealthy relationship with gambling.

In addition to my private practice, I also work as a grief & bereavement counsellor at a hospice in West Sussex.

I have and continue to work with clients of all ages and backgrounds. I have experience of working with many complex presenting issues.

I also work in association with many EAP (Employee Assist Programmes), which helps clients in the workplace deal life experiences and clients returning to work after being away on long term illness.

I hold professional indemnity insurance and have a current DBS (Disclosure & Baring Service formerly CRB) check.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

My therapy room is on the first floor meaning there is a flight of stairs to negotiate.

I am available Monday-Thursday 9.00-20.00. Please feel free to contact me to discuss session availability.
