About me

About me

I am an experienced Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor, this means I create an individual, personalised approach that is specific to your needs.  As a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy I am able to work with male or female clients and regularly help young people from the age of 12 and above.

We all have times in our lives when we feel we are unable to cope, or things get on top of us, this is when counselling can really help. Often we feel stuck and would like to move on from our present circumstances - I understand exactly how this feels as counselling helped me to change my own life, in fact it is what inspired me to become a counsellor in the first place.

I consider myself to be a warm, friendly, transparent, and most importantly a down to earth person and as such I enjoy working with clients from all walks of life, I come from a multicultural back ground and alot of my clients find this helpful as we relate easier with my own experience and understanding of cultural differences and customs.

I have helped many clients with a diverse range of issues, including;
Relationship issues, Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar, Panic Attacks, Phobias, Postnatal Depression, Anger management, Eating disorders, Affairs, Addictions etc

I specialise in working with men, women and young people who have experienced sexual violence and abuse, domestic violence and bullying. I have volunteered for CARA (Care and Action of Rape and Abuse) and AMPERSAND (male survivors of sexual abuse and domestic violence) and I very much enjoy helping my clients navigate this difficult healing process.

I have also worked at The Haven Project - a local organisation for people diagnosed with personality disorders, helping them understand what their diagnosis means, coming to terms with it and how to move forwards

Often it is a combination of issues that become overwhelming which is what eventually brings people to counselling, if this process can begin earlier and in some way reading my profile can help you take that first step and encourages you to see a counsellor (even if it isn’t me !!) then that is a great start to a quicker and more positive outcome.

I am known for my empathic, kind and caring approach to counselling, I believe that you as the client knows best and the answers can be found within you. Being able to empower you is an integral part of my work and that it is a privilege to travel alongside you on your personal journey to self-discovery and change.

My style of counselling is called “Integrative Counselling” which allows me to draw on several theoretical approaches, to find which suits the client best, rather than a single dogmatic system. This means I largely work person-centred, placing the client at the heart of their process, but lets me still see the value in a more traditional psychodynamic approach, as this enables me to link the past to the present.
