Based in Uxbridge,I work with an approach which is supportive, accepting and gently challenging. By adopting a warm, non-judgemental approach to establish an honest therapeutic relationship whereby you can freely express and explore your thoughts and feelings allowing you to gain more insight of any patterns that have been affecting you.
I work with clients on an individual basis, dealing with a wide range of issues, working with children, adolescents, adults and families.
I also have experience of issues such as cultural identity, inter-cultural marriages, forced marriage and inter-generational issues, I am able to provide culturally appropriate counselling for these issues.
The length of time clients work with me varies according to the needs of each person and includes both longer term psychotherapeutic work as well as short term counselling. In broad terms, short term counselling will typically be 6 - 12 sessions whilst working psychotherapeutically at greater depth will take longer.
As a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, I am a Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). I am bound by and adhere to its Ethical Framework for Good Practice

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
