My name is Linda, I am a registered member of the BACP.
Thank you for stopping and taking the time to read my profile.
I am able to support you if you are suffering from stress, generalised anxiety, panic disorder, depression or encountering relationship & family issues, have you been somewhat affected by Covid-19 ? speaking to a professional who has a wealth of experience from working within the medical field together we can explore what is going on for you.
At certain times throughout our lives difficulties and doubt pop up seeing a counsellor can help you face and understand these challenges. I provide a warm confidential, non-judgmental empathic space to explore together sensitive issues, thoughts and feelings both past and present. Whether you have had previous experience of counselling or are thinking about it for the first time, I understand it can be an unsettling feeling. As the relationship between client and counsellor is paramount, it is vital that you choose someone you feel comfortable with to share what is going on within you. I am deeply passionate about supporting my client’s needs and expectations and working towards achieving their potential.
I have significant experience working with clients who are troubled by anxiety, depression, relationship issues, trauma and childhood trauma within a professional environment particularly those who have self-medicated with drugs, alcohol and prescription drugs. I also have worked within a semi-independent unit for children with complex needs. I also have personal experience of being a full time carer for a parent with Alzheimer's Dementia.
My experience working with a wide range of diverse clients has enabled me to gain valuable experience and expertise. I have a down to earth approach to building an honest and open therapeutic relationship that is client centred. I work integratively and use a range of skills including Psychodynamic Therapy, Solution Focussed Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to tailor my approach to suit your needs giving you respect, time and attention.
My practice is based in Tunstall Road Croydon CR0 6TY, which is a 5-minute walk from East Croydon Station. I offer a soothing, comfortable environment in which to explore your thoughts and feelings.

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.
