I work with individuals, couples, and organisations long-term or for an agreed-upon shorter period. I provide clear methods and strategies to empower clients to improve their lives and live them more fulfilled.

Some people come to counselling because they are curious and want to understand themselves better, whereas most clients come because they want to change something in their lives but are unsure how to change it. 

Depending on what you would like help with, I can help you with different ways to resolve the concern. 

Integrative - means you are not limited to one type of Therapy, which may or not suit you. 

Exploratory - gives you a greater understanding of how you process your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours.

Structurally - focusing on small, measurable goals to aid your growth and self-development. 

Free resources -  in the form of worksheets are sometimes given as homework in-between sessions to increase your growth and self-development. 


I have experience working with clients who have suffered acute emotional and behavioural problems in the areas of: 

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationship Difficulties
  • Self-Esteem
  • Feeling Sad and Alone
  • Shame
  • Abuse
  • Intercultural issues
  • Anger                                                                                                                      


My interest in counselling stems in part from a very positive personal experience I had during long-term Psychodynamic psychotherapy that began after the breakdown of a long-term relationship, which left me with more questions than answers. I originally arranged counselling, hoping for some growth and insight into what had gone wrong with my relationship.

Also, I had always been interested in mental health after witnessing a relative suffer from Bi-Polar yet manage to work a 9-5 job and live alone with the help of talking Therapy and medication.

In 2009, after working in the construction industry for 13 years, I decided to re-train to become a psychotherapist and embarked on a journey of self-discovery and growth by studying Psychology and Counselling.

I now know that as a trained therapist, the self-awareness I gained from long-term personal Therapy was essential training to work safely and ethically with clients.

I completed my studies in 2014 as an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. Since then, I've worked with clients suffering from acute emotional and behavioural problems in the NHS, Prisons, Youth Offenders Institutions, and private practice.

Counselling sessions are currently held on Zoom or Face to Face on Fridays.

My practice is in Croydon, a short distance from the Central shopping centre. Getting to it is easy, and you can take an Overground train to either West or East Croydon BR Stations and walk the short distance to the practice. Alternatively, you can take a tram to the Croydon Central Trams-link stop or get on any of the many buses travelling to Central Croydon and walk a short distance to the practice.


Often people seek counselling for a wide range of difficulties that have affected their way of thinking or their self-worth. Taking the time to talk to an experienced therapist will give you a better understanding of yourself and the concerns that may have left you feeling anxious and unable to cope.

“Counselling has helped me to put my life in order; it’s given me tools to understand perspectives that I never looked at before. I feel much happier and have a better understanding of my emotions and actions. It’s completely changed the way I think about my life and constantly helps me to re-think decisions/actions I may not have done before..."
Client I

'A long-held concern was that I would be crushed by the weight of my own shame, regrets and judgement, also that I would become unfamiliar with myself. As it turned out the sessions were always calm and supportive in a safe environment, I felt at ease and never felt judged’…

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
