Life coaching, counselling therapy and Supervision in South Croydon and via Skype
I have over nine years experience as a counsellor and have my own private practice in South Croydon. I am a member of BACP ( British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and abide by their ethical framework. I am also registered on the accredited voluntary register and offer you a safe , confidential space to explore whatever is causing you difficulties. I am available in the day time and some evenings. Latest appointments are at 8pm. I thank you for taking the time to look at my website, please explore more below.
Are you needing to find some space to talk to someone? Are you feeling overwhelmed or anxious in a way that is making life difficult to deal with on a daily basis? Do you have that knot in your stomach, that just won't go away?
Life is very much an up and down hill journey, with bumpy rides that we just don't foresee. Everything can be fine, and then it can all come crashing down, sometimes slowly , and other times very quickly. I'm here to work alongside you, to understand what has caused the anxiety or stress, and to slowly enable you to get back up and into your life journey again. I believe you are the expert in your world, and that with the right space for thought and exploration, you will get in touch with who you really are, and where you want to be.
I offer a safe comfortable confidential space for you to explore issues that are affecting you in your life. The relationship we build is based upon trust, genuineness and the ability for me to explore your world from your eyes. This then enables me to understand exactly how things are for you, and from that point, we can work together to focus on the areas that you are wanting to change in your life, or the areas that are causing worry and anxiety. I work in a non judgemental way, which means that my own values and beliefs are put aside in order to truly understand and hear yours. I work short term ( up to 6 sessions) or long- term ( open ended) depending on what you decide you need.
I have been running my own private practice for eight years, after qualifying as a person centred counsellor.
