About me and my therapy practice

I have been in private practice in the Croydon area for over 19 years offering counselling to individuals and couples. 

Sometimes in life, events happen that can leave us unable to cope.  Maybe waking up in the morning can feel like you have a mountain to climb just to get through the day.  Maybe you are dealing with anxiety, depression, loss, financial issues,  relationship difficulties or stress at work. All of these issues can be hard to manage on your own at times and if you work with me I will help you understand the issues and together we will find a way to help you manage them. 

I work in an exploratory way, guided by psychodynamic theory. What that means is that I will gather information about your childhood, your present day issues and relationships and look at the links between these areas, as well as how you relate to me.   My work isn't like CBT so I don't provide homework. The way to explain it I guess is a bit like an onion.  We will slowly peel off the layers to reveal the source of the difficulties. 


During the current Coronavirus situation I am offering online sessions via Zoom. To allow for difficulties in locating a suitable confidential space during the day, I am offering early morning or late evening appointments. 


I charge £60 a session for individuals and £75 for couples.

Critical Incident fees for companies including group work - fee to be discussed.



Practice description

I work with individuals and couples on an open ended contract so we will work together until you reach a point where you feel better in yourself and able to manage your issues. 

I work on a short term basis for a few EAP providers covering the South London area and can offer on site Critical Incident support for companies.

My first session

The first session will be an assessment to enable me to get an idea of what is going on for you.  I take notes in the first two sessions which are stored in a confidential space. 

As we are currently working online it is important that you are able to provide a confidential space where you won't be overheard.

About me and my therapy practice

I can offer clinical supervision on a 1:1 or group basis to student and qualified counsellors. I can also offer supervision in an educational or corporate setting. 

I’m a Senior Accredited counsellor with BACP and have been working in private practice since 2001. I trained integratively and can therefore offer supervision across several theoretical models, except CBT.    I have experience working with EAP's short model counselling and long term counselling.  I currently offer supervision monthly, bi weekly or weekly to students and qualified counsellors. 

My practice is based in Shirley, 3 miles south of Croydon,Surrey. Alternatively I can offer supervision via Skype.
