About me

It can take a lot of courage to seek help at a time when you may be feeling your most vulnerable. Sharing intimate details about your challenges can sometimes feel scary and overwhelming. In my work with clients, I value greatly the willingness to explore the issues that are causing distress. I offer a respectful, empathic, supportive and grounded base from which you can explore, with the ultimate goal of gaining understanding of the struggles you face and how to overcome them.

I have been deeply motivated in advocating for the de-stigmatisation of mental health challenges and this has fuelled my passion for psychotherapy. I myself have undergone psychotherapy so I have an understanding for both sides of the relationship.

Training, qualifications & experience

My training includes a BSc in Psychology, a Masters in Counselling Psychology and various trainings I have undergone successfully.

I have worked with a wide variety of clients with various challenges and treat each individual as such. My clients have come from an array of cultural backgrounds, differing sexual orientation and regardless of differences, I treat each person with respect.

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.
