About me

They say: "everyone comes into our lives for a reason, a purpose or a life time”.

I am a black woman who has been a Social Worker for over 20 years and a counsellor for over 20 years. Whilst working as a Social Worker I had wanted to understand the client’s pattern of behaviour and why most families kept repeating the same mistakes.

This led me to undertake further studies to become a therapist. It was clear from my experiences as both a Social Worker and therapist how important past relationships impact our lives.

Throughout my life, I too have had life struggles and issues that have caused me pain, sadness and anger. However, with my training first as a Social Worker then as a Therapist, I have become more aware of my patterns of behaviour and learnt how to change them. This has empowered me enabling me to be more in control, which in turn has given me a more positive attitude to life

And now I help others do the same.

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.
