I am an Integrative Counsellor specialised in various treatments such as Depression, Anxiety and Trauma, having qualified through Plymouth University. I have a hands on experience of working with bereavement and supporting families fleeing war-tone countries.
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 Individual member of the BACP ( British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy). My work is covered by indemnity insurance and I am regularly supervised.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
