My name is Jason and I am a member of the BACP
(British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).
You can find me in Selsdon, South Croydon, CR2 8SR
People contact a counsellor for many different reasons
As a counsellor we could together explore your feelings, thoughts and emotions and see if we can make sense of these. My private practice is located at my family home in Selsdon, South Croydon, CR2 8SR.
I have many years of working as a counsellor, and have qualified integratively. This means I have the ability to draw on many different theories and be able to apply this to your therapy. I have worked in agency settings dealing mainly with clients and there relationship and dependency on drug and alcohol. In addition to my private practice, I currently work for a hospice with clients coming to terms with the loss of a loved one. Loss can also come in many other forms, such as the loss of a job and the loss of a relationship. You may be feeling great anxiety and depression associated with your loss and together we could explore your feelings and make sense of these.
I also have trainied in the loss of a baby, this could be during pregnancy, still birth or sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS, cot death). I am able to offer to you a safe space in which to explore your emotions. Any type of loss can be very confusing, however the loss of an infant even more so as this is not the correct way in how we perceive loss. I can work with you to discuss this confusion and other raw emotions you are experiencing.
I also work extensively with couples, offering emotionally focused couples therapy. This form of couples therapy is structured and allows you the ability to disengage from the negative and damaging narrative between a couple, and change to a more emotionally connected narrative. This will bring you closer together with more love and understanding of one another.
I have had many years of experience in counselling clients who have received a diagnoses of having to have a stoma. I also mentor clients after their stoma surgery who are coming to terms with the change in how their body now works, and the associated emotions attached to living with a stoma.
As a member of the BACP I adhere to their ethical framework and therefore provide a safe and professional environment in which to practice. If you require any further information about the framework I work within you can find this at www.bacp.co.uk
