I qualified as a therapist in 2004 and am an Accredited Registered Member (MBACP) of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
My aim is to provide clients with a friendly, respectful and non-judgemental environment in which you are able to safely explore any issues that might bring you to therapy. I have gained invaluable practical experience from working with individuals from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
I have qualified in Person Centred & Existential Counselling although I work with an integrated approach drawing on various counselling theories such as cognitive, humanistic and psychodynamic. This plethora of modalities enables me to work collaboratively using techniques and skills to produce a positive outcome to meet the needs and objectives of each person.This approach can work well with clients experiencing stress, anxiety and relationship difficulties.
My past work experience includes Mental Health, Prisons, Schools, NHS referrals, Rape Crisis (working with trauma) and other organisations.
Trust is crucial in all relationships and through our exploration we will aim for self development, enhanced self-esteem & self worth and greater well being.
You are welcome to contact me to arrange an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you.

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 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.
