I am a qualified and experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor. I have extensive experience of working with a wide range of emotional difficulties. I offer an integrative approach which is Humanistic/Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Existential and CBT models of counselling. I have worked for various counselling organisations such as the NHS, IAPT Service and Nafsiyat Intercultural Therapy Centre.
I believe in offering my clients a confidential and non-judgmental space which helps them in understanding themselves and making better choices in a safe nurturing environment. Therapy can be short term (8-20 sessions) and long term which is ongoing depending on clients’ individual needs and presenting issues.
I am a registered member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I abide by the BACP code of conducts and ethics to work professionally to a high standard.
I work with people from all backgrounds and offer counselling in English and community languages such as Urdu, Hindi and Punjabi.

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.
