Whatever brings you to therapy, I can offer you a safe confidential setting for you to express and work through your emotions in a non-judgemental atmosphere. I work either short or long term, depending on what brings you to therapy and we can clarify what your needs are at our first session, and depending on what you want to achieve, we can aim to set a plan to achieve these results and get the help you need.

Over 7 year experience working within mental health and domestic abuse.

My clinical work as a counselor has been in a diverse range of settings from NHS IAPT services to working in bereavement, addiction, pre and postnatal, and mental health settings

From my historic training and ongoing professional development, I have taken into account my clients' needs and personal beliefs. Being mindful that my relational style of work is sensitive to your culture and traditions.

I have experience working with a wide range of complex issues, be it in individual or group settings, from private practice to working in the charitable sector.
This has helped my clinical work, by providing me with the knowledge, understanding, and skills needed to relate to people from a range of cultural and social backgrounds. It has also raised my awareness of the factors that may impact a person’s experience of mental health problems.

Where I can, I utilise my language skills and ‘mother tongue to support clients if it's applicable, which also helps to make the connection fluid. I embrace a relational orientation with a particular interest in cultural and intergenerational trauma. I am personally interested in the interaction between culture and therapeutic experience.

I abide by the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy which is set out by the BACP, I am fully insured and I receive regular clinical supervision from highly experienced and industry-leading Clinical Supervisors.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
