About me

To get the most out of the counselling process, it is important that you feel safe, supported, and comfortable sharing whatever is on your mind. Therapy is about giving you a forum where you can do just that whilst being listened to, without judgement or disruption, which sometimes doesn't happen in our everyday lives.

My clinical experience began 5 years at the Sangam Centre and CPPD's Counselling facility in North London, where I helped a diverse client base with their psychological well-being, and I've been running my own practice for the past two years.

The approach that I use is integrative, which means that I draw upon different techniques such as CBT, humanistic and psychodynamic, which may involve exploring links between the past and the present to help you make the decisions that are right for your future.

Training, qualifications & experience

Post-Graduate Diploma in Humanistic integrative Counselling, 2017; Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, 2016; Certificate in Psychiatry, Psychopathology and Psychodynamics, 2016; Certificate in Humanistic Counselling, 2014. CPPD, London Metropolitan University.

Areas that I specialise in include anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and relationship issues.

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.

Accessibility

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.
