I have been in that unimaginable place, where I did not know where to turn or even where to begin to make the necessary changes to improve my life. It is through my own positive experiences of counselling that I decided to train to become a counsellor. I understand that taking that first step towards seeking support can seem very challenging. It is with this empathetic thought in mind, and the ethical framework that I work within that I always endeavour to establish a transparent and trusting therapeutic relationship, without judgement, in a safe and confidential environment.

I am a psychologist with particular interest in working with people who who want to use therapy to think about their relationships with others. In some cases, this might be in the context of an autism spectrum condition; or a change in identity like leaving home, intercultural relationships, or transitioning.

Right now, as you read this, you are likely not in a good place. You may be feeling distressed and hopeless or overwhelmed. This may have been going on for a long time and you may have tried to cope in different ways - but it's no longer working? You have tried talking to friends and family but that isn't working either? Maybe there are things that happened a long time ago in your childhood and this is still affecting you today - therapy can be a place to begin to look at all of this and can be the start of beginning to feel better and with improving self-esteem.

Therapy can help you whilst going through some of the most difficult times in your life, whether they are in the present or the past. As a counsellor there would be a safe place to offload those harmful thoughts in the room and where the focus is on the thoughts and feelings you have created. My focus is on you the client to support you at an emotional and steady pace; and to progress you from where you are to a place of contentment. I have been a therapist to children to mature adults. Remember that, "you are more than your past".

I believe that we all have a natural tendency to develop our full potential, and can usually find our way forward using our inner sense of what is best for us. Life doesn’t always run to plan and there may be times when we lose touch with our natural tendency, experiencing feelings that may lead to psychological difficulties and we may need some help to move forward with our life.

If you're here looking for help then chances are your previous ways of coping aren't working as well as they use to. Whether that was simply avoiding the difficulty or trying to distract yourself from it, it's not going away anymore. This could have been with you for some time and reared itself during the pandemic when the thing you used to cope was taken away from you. Maybe it was alcohol, drugs, food or sex. I'd like to offer you psychotherapy as a way to transform your situation. I have over 8 years experience in private practice, I'm also registered with the BACP (the largest association in the UK).

We all encounter difficulties in life, where some may feel more challenging than others to cope with alone. I offer a place to where we can explore such struggles that may cause us to feel sad, anxious and overwhelmed. These diffculties could be due to Relationships, Bereavement, Family Issues, Mental Health, Depression, Anxiety. Counselling can bring awareness and change to all difficulties that may arise in ones life through exploring these difficulties within counselling. I believe that is achieved by creating a comfortable environment and a relaxed atmosphere to work within which allows us to get to the root cause.

I believe therapy should be all about providing a conducive space where you can talk about yourself and your world, without fear of being judged, and at the same time, you are provided with the opportunity to learn how to make changes to improve your emotional wellbeing. If there's anything you should know about me, it's the fact that I'm ALWAYS on your side. We're on the same team and I'll help you fight the fight together. My job is to help you navigate and overcome some of the most difficult experiences you have had in your life. And I see it as a privilege that I get to be a part of your journey in finding growth.

I work in a Person-Centred way, which means that the therapy is centred around you, the person as an individual. Something that many of us struggle with is to really hear own processing, as we are constantly surrounded by the views of other people, or society’s expectations and taking on advice that doesn’t match up with our own, internal processing.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Croydon are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Croydon then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Croydon, or Child Psychologists in Croydon.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Croydon psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Croydon specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
