About me

Are you struggling with stress, anxiety, low mood, cultural issues or relationship problems? As a fully qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist, my main aim is to work alongside you on your journey to replace struggle with peace and harmony.  Sometimes in life, we go through difficult situations that come upon us unexpectedly, which we struggle to deal with. 

I practice integrative counselling and psychotherapy, which is a model that uses techniques from different therapeutic approaches so that the service provided is tailored to suit the specific needs and particular circumstances of each individual client. This means that I will work with you to clarify the issues you may be presenting and to identify what you would like to get out of the therapy sessions, so that you feel fully involved in the process and can take pride in your achievements at the end of our work together.

During times of crisis what we need is a safe and confidential support where we can be listened to without judgement. The therapy setting gives you the space to begin the process of resolving any underlying conflicts and hurts that may be holding you back from reaching your full potential in life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Post Graduate Diploma as well as an MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have worked on a voluntary basis with MIND in Tower Hamlets and Newham and with the Centre for Better Health in Hackney.

In addition to the foregoing, I hold an Advanced Certificate in Christian Pastoral Care and Counselling as well as a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Originally, I trained and worked as a secondary school teacher which was when my interest in Counselling and Psychotherapy began. 

I will work collaboratively with you and have experience of providing short-term sessions where the focus will be on achieving a specific goal, as well as working on a long-term basis with open-ended sessions which would allow us to work on more deep-rooted issues that require adequate time for a change of perspective to be achieved. 

As a member of the BACP, I abide by their ethical framework for good practice which includes maintaining confidentiality and receiving regular supervision to ensure that the service I provide is of the highest standard. 

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.
