About Me

 

My name is Shane, and I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor MBACP.

 

I currently run a private practice based in Tunstall Road in Croydon and South London Therapy Group in Peckham for face-to-face sessions, Caya Therapy in Peckham and I also offer online sessions via Zoom.

 

I believe that we all know ourselves better than anyone else. I see it as my job to help you uncover parts of you that may be lost, hidden, or not in your awareness.

I offer a warm, calming, supportive, and empathic presence. This will allow you to be yourself, free of any judgment. By working together, we will create a space to allow you to discuss whatever may be on your mind freely.

In addition to my private practice, I have worked in the emergency services as well as working alongside local authority mental health services and other partner agencies.

 

I have experience supporting clients with:

Anxiety, Depression, men’s issues, self-esteem issues, racial identity, emergency services trauma/PTSD, and trauma.
