About me

Hello! My name is Ayanda and thank you for considering my profile. I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor currently offering online sessions with adults.

I trained at The Minster Centre. My integrative training means I am able to tailor my approach to address your individual concerns. I draw primarily on relational, existential and embodied approaches. This means considering the role relationships have played in shaping your experience (including with yourself, within your family and wider society); exploring the meaning you make of your concerns and ways that your concerns can manifest themselves in/through your body. I bring an intersectional lens to my practice considering the role that oppression can play in shaping your daily experience.

I come to counselling following a career in audience research spanning nearly 15 years. After my own journey of transformation which was facilitated by therapy, I trained as counsellor in the hopes of facilitating spaces of exploration and transformation for others.

How can I help you?

Indlela is a Zulu word meaning path or journey but also a resource. I believe this word encapsulates the role I play as a counsellor. Someone who will accompany you on your journey through the difficulties or concerns that bring you to therapy by offering a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to explore your thoughts and feelings at your own pace. Through this exploration, we will work to discover and develop the internal resources you need to continue your journey, even once you have left therapy.

What to do next

I know taking that first step towards therapy can be a daunting prospect and so you may have a lot of questions about therapy and the ways that it can support you. 

To help with this I offer a free 15min introductory call which will allow us to meet, explore what brings you to therapy and help to determine whether I am the right therapist for you. Should you wish to continue, we will schedule an assessment session to further explore what brings you to therapy. We will then meet for weekly 50min sessions to explore the areas identified within this assessment session.

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.
