About me


Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.

I am a person centred counsellor and psychotherapist registered member of the BACP.

I can support you if you are suffering with anxiety, depression, fatigue, stress and generalised panic disorder  or you maybe encountering a form of abuse  whether it be emotional, physical and financial abuse you may also be experiencing relationship & family issues.

Speaking to a professional who has gained experience from working within the healthcare sector together we can explore what is going on for you. At certain times throughout our lives difficulties and doubt pop up seeing a counsellor psychotherapist I 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 trauma and childhood trauma within a professional environment particularly those who have self-medicated with drugs, alcohol and prescription drugs. I have worked within a housing and support for adults and young people who have high complex needs, I have also worked in a semi-independent unit with young vulnerable children with complex needs.

I have personal experience of caring full time for a parent with Alzheimer's Dementia, and the difficulties this can present. 

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 use an integrative approach using 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 East Croydon 15 minutes from the station. I offer a soothing, comfortable environment in which to explore your thoughts and feelings.

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.

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.
