One of the first steps towards addressing challenges such as anxiety, low self esteem and depression is finding a counsellor that you are comfortable working with. I am an experienced non-judgemental counsellor who works with adults and teenagers in a discrete environment in convenient locations in Epsom and Coulsdon - daytime or evenings.
If you are currently at a time in your life where you are facing issues and difficulties past and present, which you are finding overwhelming and distressing, counselling can help to identify repeated behaviour patterns which may be restricting you and preventing you from reaching your full potential.
My aim as a counsellor is to be part of this journey, by helping clients both adults and teenagers to find a way through their challenges. My approach is to be non- judgemental, professional, supportive, caring and empathetic in order to work with whatever you deem is important. This is done in a confidential space.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Additional experience and training in young people's counselling and counselling for friends and family of people affected by internet offending:
I have a special interest in counselling young people.
Just like adults, as we know, young people have emotional needs as they are also affected by the challenges of life and therefore need the relevant support, to help them on their way and tackle issues which may be restricting their development.
In the current environment children and young people are under increasing pressure to perform and achieve to a very high standard. I have noticed that there are many young people, particularly in the performing arts, who struggle with perfectionism. I work extensively in this area. My goal is to help them to reach a more balanced and healthy way of being, so that they can achieve their potential and ultimately be happier.
I work with various resources and tools in order to assist the expression of their thoughts and feelings, but most of all I aim to work with empathy and care.
I provide empathetic non judgemental counselling for non offending family and friends of people affected by internet offending. I draw from professional experience and knowledge in this area and appreciate the challenges involved.
How to arrange counselling:
If you would like to explore this further the first step is to book an initial appointment which will give you an opportunity to discuss the issues you would like to focus on, and ascertain if counselling would be appropriate for you.
Therapy is available on a short or long term basis. The sessions are typically arranged on a weekly basis at the same time and location.
£45 per for a 50 minute session and £40 for young people.
I practice from therapy rooms in three areas: Coulsdon, Croydon/Purley and Epsom, with both daytime and evening appointments.
