About me

'In light of the current situation with COVID19, I'm offering online sessions via Skype, FaceTime or Zoom and phone counselling.'

Psychotherapist, Life and Relationship Coach

Are you feeling anxious, depressed or stressed? Do you feel that nobody understands? What or how do you change things?

I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor/ Psychotherapist. I work with clients from various cross-sections of the community and with a varied age group. I am culturally sensitive and understand the needs and expectations of different cultural groups. I provide a safe, confidential and empathic environment for you to discuss issues which may be affecting you.

I have considerable experience working with individuals diagnosed with personality disorders, depression, anxiety and relationship issues. Working with victims of domestic abuse for a number of years has also given me the added advantage of developing a better understanding of abuse and trauma and the different approaches which can be used when working with individuals.

As an Integrative therapist, my work with individuals can involve various approaches such as CBT, Psychodynamic, Gestalt or Person Centred. The approach I take depends on the needs of the individual and what best suits them.

I provide counselling in Edgbaston, Birmingham (B15 area) and Solihull (B90 area) which is easily accessible by bus, train and has parking. Appointments available daytime, evening and weekends.

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.

Key details

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.
