About me

I am an Integrative Counsellor specialised in various treatments such as Depression, Anxiety and Trauma, having qualified through Plymouth University and Middlesex University. Working with diversity has always been interesting to me; besides helping my clients to find meaning and grow, I also learn about different cultures and ways of being, and therefore, I am open to work with individuals from all walks of life. I can describe myself as a warm person with deep empathy, who helps my clients to find their own path, inner self and growth while respecting their autonomy by allowing them to sit in the driver's seat as they navigate through their journey of healing.

For clients who find it difficult to express themselves verbally, I can also work creatively using different mediums such as Sand tray, photography and memory jars to help them find a map to their journey of healing, training I received through working with bereaved clients at Longfield Hospice and also as part of my University training.

I am an Registered Member (MBACP) of the BACP ( British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy). My work is covered by indemnity insurance and regular supervision.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
