About me

"As a counsellor and a Psychotherapist, I help clients to deal with the tricky situation/s who feel anxious, depressed and or overwhelmed, to create their own 'Clear Sky' and manage their feelings once again"

It is my passion to help clients to effectively deal with these feelings of overwhelm, anxiety, stress and depression.

Exploring the causes and roots of your issues can clear your thoughts and create your 'clear sky'

Would you like to gain insights into your triggers, get to the roots of your problems, understand how you feel and why? Want to have coping strategies?  If you do, then you have come to the right place.

In my practice, I help my clients to navigate tricky situations. I understand the importance of understanding the triggers and roots of your presenting problems? Issues that you have been pushing back and do not know how to deal with?  You do not know who to turn to? Finding difficult to talk to your friends and family for the fear of being judged or criticised?

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

I acknowledge that it may be difficult to consider counselling, but since you are looking at my profile, it seems you have taken the first step. Contact me to discuss if counselling is for you? Is it a right time for you? How I may be able to help?

We will talk briefly on the phone and arrange the initial consultation. In initial consultation we will explore your present difficulties that has prompt you to get help, we will explore history.

I will also explain how I work and about confidentiality and framework.

The initial consultation will give us both a chance to see if we can work together and for me also to know if I am the right help for you.

At the end of the consultation, you will have an opportunity to make decision to continue or to go away and think about it if you wish to commence.

Either way, at the end of consultation or at a later day when you contact me we will work out best time suitable to both of us.
