Woodcote Counselling Service Roz Turner-Drage

Welcome. Roz desk

Welcome ...

My name is Roz, I am a qualified and experienced therapist offering counselling and CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) to adults and young people. I also work with parents who are supporting their children with mental health challenges and self-harm.

I offer one-to-one appointments at my comfortable therapy room in Purley (on the Surrey / South London border), by phone, video (Zoom) and email.

If this is the first time you’ve considered counselling, psychotherapy or CBT then you may feel a little overwhelmed by the task of finding a therapist that you feel comfortable with. I hope that my website will give you enough information to help you make your decision to contact me by email, text or phone. You can also go ahead and book an appointment directly online using the link at the top of the page.

Our work together will be a place where we can work together to look at issues that have been troubling you in a non-judgemental and confidential space; to explore the feelings that you may find too difficult or confusing to discuss with family and friends. Being trained in psychodynamic counselling and CBT I offer a bespoke approach to supporting you, drawing on my knowledge, skills and training to best fit with your approach and the challenges you're facing at this time. If you'd like to know a little more about the differences between CBT, counselling and psychotherapy take a look at the link here

I am an experienced psychotherapist, CBT practitioner, youth counsellor and clinical supervisor, helping clients with a wide range of difficulties including:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Work and study difficulties
  • Lack of confidence and self-esteem
  • Panic attacks
  • Relationship and family difficulties
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Sexual abuse and trauma
  • Suicidal thoughts and self harm
  • Parenting challenges (including parenting an anxious child)

    When you contact me to make an appointment I will arrange a convenient time for us to meet. At the end of this first session, you can consider whether you feel that we can work together effectively. It is important that you choose to work with a therapist that you will be able to build a trusting relationship with.

    If after this first session you decide that you would like us to work together then I will offer you a regular appointment (usually weekly), whilst we are working together this time of the week will be yours. Therapy is most effective when you come on a regular basis. If you work commitments don't allow this then we can work together to find a way for you to receive regular support.

    Therapy can be hard work but extremely rewarding. There may be times during our work together when you find the counselling painful or uncomfortable and you feel like it would be easier not to think about areas of your life that cause you distress. That’s OK and it’s really useful to persevere at these times and be honest about what’s happening so that I can offer you support and we can work together to understand your difficulties.
