About me

I am available for flexible appointments. I genuinely care about my clients. I am positive, polite, and professional in my counselling practice. I listen with empathy and unconditional positive regard. I expect you to come to your therapy session just as you are. I offer therapy to people who are 18 years and above from different cultural and religious backgrounds.

I am a qualified integrative counsellor and I subscribe to the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice. In counseling and Psychotherapy. My aim is to support my clients recognise, understand, and solve their problems. This will help them to gain a deeper understanding of themselves, work towards therapeutic change and reach their organismic self. I work with you ethically and safely to ensure that your voice and concerns are heard. I will help you to explore your thought process. As an integrative counsellor, I draw from a range of modalities, including person-centred, psychodynamic, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and solution focused brief therapy (SFBT) etc. I look forward to working with you collaboratively. I regularly attend supervision and professional training as part of my continuous professional development (CPD) in my journey of growth as a reflective practitioner.

What I can help with

I support my clients with short and long-term counselling. I can help you with issues such as anxiety, bereavement, depression, low self-esteem, relationship problems, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mental health related issues.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Membership: British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) - Individual Member

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.
