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 16 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 on our life.

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.

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.
