About me

I know how hard it can be to ask someone for help, taking the first step in accessing support is a huge achievement. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental counselling and supervision service where I want you to be yourself and use the safe space to explore whatever it is that’s concerning you. Please get in touch if you need me to listen to whatever seems troublesome. I believe there is a solution to every problem and together, we can find it.

I am an Accredited registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy), have a specialist Diploma in clinical counselling supervision. and in CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy). I have undertaken several years of experience and training in the field of domestic and sexual violence, with over 14 years of professional experience with both children and adults. My core approach is person centred which enables me to build a great rapport with my clients and empathise with them using a compassionate, nurturing approach. My aim is to bring back the happiness, confidence, normality and strength to the individual concerned.  I have sound knowledge and understanding of ethical boundaries and how to act accordingly in relation to equal opportunities and diversity and I have undertaken safe guarding training with the NSPCC.

Each person is an individual with their own attitudes, beliefs, constructs, behaviours and unique responses to the challenges presented to them. Consequently, I have developed a way of working collaboratively and proactively with each person, inviting them to be actively involved in the selection of counselling strategies and interventions that help facilitate their process. An important part of this journey is empowering individuals to take responsibility for the choices they make when facing life challenges. By identifying and validating their strengths, the therapeutic relationship can contribute positively to transform these challenges into positive outcomes making the impossible possible.

I am compassionate, honest and hardworking individual maintaining professional boundaries and integrity. I am respectful of the autonomy of all people and I strive to create value within my work as well as creating value in others.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Having successfully worked and completing a variety of workshops at Birmingham and Solihull Women's Aid, I have sound knowledge of domestic violence issues, rape & sexual violence, teenage partner abuse, domestic violence (children & young people) and FGM female genital mutilation.

I have also had the opportunity to work with residents that have been victims of domestic/sexual violence within a Birmingham refuge for a period of two years. Each case was a huge success. Each case with the service user was unique. I offered non-judgmental, safe and caring sessions, listening attentively and emotionally supporting women to personally grow and feel empowered.
