MSc, MBACP (Accred)

About me

I am a counsellor / psychotherapist who can facilitate helping you overcome emotional pain and unrest.  I believe most people experience difficulties in their relationships with others as well as themselves, which is why a good therapeutic relationship is the foundation of the healing process. I do this by building and strengthening the therapeutic relationship between us, creating a safe, non-judgmental space for you to share your thoughts and feelings. The ultimate goal would be to let you explore your strategies in managing emotional conflicts, enabling you to move forward.

I concurrently hold various roles within the NHS encompassing clinical and quality improvement work.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold BSc (Hons) Applied Psychology and Computing, PGDip in Psychology, and MSc in Therapeutic Counselling.  I am a member of BACP. I have been practicing for 9 years- first through Newham Action Against Domestic Violence until it was decommissioned in 2015. In this organisation I primarily worked with victims of Domestic Violence, both men and women. I am also a psychotherapist at Sarah Agnes Foundation with a focus on strengthening familial relationships. I have experience in helping clients with a variety of emotional conflicts with positive outcomes. I have worked with anxiety, depression, sexual abuse, family separation, loneliness, body dysmorphia, homelessness, suicidal ideation, phobias, and psychosexual issues.

Member organisations


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.
