About me

Have you been? Overthinking, worrying, feeling sad, hopeless, avoiding friends and families, isolated and feeling a sense of not belonging, confusion, avoiding  any kind of social interaction  or desperately needing connect again that may feels unbearable to go on living like this? Through counselling , clients can recover motivation, perspective, hope, strengthen problem solve skills, build resilience and learn how tolerate anxiety; they also can overcome unwanted memories and sadness not only but also experience joy again.

My focus is to help individuals heal, energise, and become aware of their inner strengths; I provide a safe non-judgemental space, where clients are made to feel valued, understood, listened to and free to express and explore any concern. I am an integrative counsellor and as  part of the therapeutic relationship  I have with my clients we can use a range of technics such as: games, role play, drawing, crafts, mindfulness, blobs pictures, solution focus exercises, etc as long as you the client feels comfortable with, as  the base of my work is client -centred that means; I respect that my clients know what is best for them.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
