I am an integrative counsellor which means I believe the past, especially our relationship (or lack of relationship) with our parents/caregivers shapes the person we are today. As your counsellor aim to provide a safe space for us to work through your issues, recognising and changing unhelpful beliefs with a view to helping you towards becoming your best self. I believe like a phoenix we all have the ability to rise from the ashes and it helps to have a counsellor who you feel is really in your corner.
I draw on the person-centred approach of counselling and the psychodynamic approach to help you tackle a wide range of issues that get in the way of your happiness and living your best life. I also use elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
I believe in life no-one should have to suffer in silence and that no-one is beyond help if they are willing to work at it. A lot of people, don't have someone to really listen to them and that's what I'm here for. In addition to that If you are committed I will be committed to helping you to rise up, stand tall and work towards becoming your best self!

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.
