Junior is a qualified and experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor with a range of clinical experience working with clients / patients within organisations such as the NHS, Men’s Prisons with adults and young adults, CPF (Croydon) and The Awareness Centre (Clapham).
Approach to therapy
His theoretical approach is integrative, which means he uses a combination of approaches to form his own style. These include Psychodynamic, Existential, CBT, Humanistic and solution focused; putting theories aside he believes that the most important part of therapy is the relationship that emerges between the client and therapist.
Clinical working experience
Junior has experience of working with people with a range of presenting issues such as:
- Anxiety and depression
- Mental health
- Cultural identity/concerns
- Relationship & sex issues
- Low self-esteem
- Anger management
- Bereavement and stress
- Feeling isolated and alone
He has worked with many people from culturally diverse backgrounds with early attachments problems, cultural, spiritual and sexual identity.
In addition, he has helped men with anger management and domestic violence issues to work through and overcome painful emotions such as shame, guilt, anxiety, anger and depression.
Where can you find him?
He currently works from a practice based in Croydon which is located a short distance from the Central shopping centre. Getting there is easy 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 Croydon Central Tramlink stop or get on any of the many buses travelling to Central Croydon and walk the short distance to the practice.
Who benefits from counselling?
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.
What can he provide?
He offers a confidential, non-judgmental space that supports clients in making better sense of how they think, feel and act in a safe nurturing environment. Therapy is conducted face to face and is either short term (6-20 sessions) or long term which is ongoing.
In addition, he is a member of UKCP (UK Council for psychotherapy) and the BACP (British Association for counselling and Psychotherapy) which means he is compelled by their code of conduct and ethics to work professionally within their ethical framework to a high standard.

Areas of counselling I deal with
There is an initial meeting called an assessment; it is different from weekly therapy sessions and cost £40.00 It takes roughly 60 - 90 mins and is based on a series of questions to get to know you and the concerns you are bringing to therapy.
If both parties agree to work together at the initial assessment, you will be offered between (6) the minimum and (24) the maximum therapy sessions to work through your concerns. Before we have come to the end of these therapy sessions, we will have a discussion to review the therapy and to decide if the sessions should end at this point or whether we should continue therapy with a longer-term agreement put into place.
