About me

I am a qualified Person-centred Counsellor (FDA Degree in Arts Counselling). I obtained my degree through Middlesex University. I am a Registered Member of BACP, and I conform to the BACP code of ethics. I established my counselling service called “Need to Talk”, a charity-funded organisation.

I have been a clinical supervisor since 2012, and as well as my role as a counsellor and supervisor, I have been a CPCAB counselling Tutor with Hillingdon adult education for the last nine years. I am also an EV for CPCAB.

My work has been varied across various areas:

  • Mental health
  • Addictions
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Relationship issues
  • Couples
  • Families
  • Young people.

I am a friendly and committed person with experience dealing with many people in stressful situations.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

Further information

I have an empathetic approach to my clients which is based on confidentiality and trust. In a session I create a safe and non-judgemental environment where clients are made to feel valued, understood, listened to and free to express and explore any concern.

As a supervisor, I provide the trainee counsellor room to work with the client, helping them to understand the client from different perspectives; I keep monitor the counsellor’s work, exploring the working alliance.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
