Thank you for viewing my profile.
Making a choice to see a counsellor isn’t easy, knowing the type of counsellor you want to see or simply selecting someone by looking at their picture can be a very difficult process.
I just want you to know a little about me, I am a Person-Centred therapist but do integrate therapies to work with the need of my client. I have over 7 years of experience in counselling I provide a counselling service for adults with a wide range of emotional, relational and psychological difficulties. I provide a safe non-judgmental environment for clients to engage in therapy and feel the freedom to explore.
I have worked at a variety of organisations offering counselling on a 1-1 basis. I have worked with a range of clients dealing with a wide range of issues, some of which are:
- Postnatal Depression (PND)
- Postpartum psychosis
- Loss and Grief
- Identity issues
- PTSD (Post traumatic stress disorder)
- Domestic Abuse, Arranged Marriage
- OCD (Obsessive compulsive disorder)
- Low self esteem
- Cultural issues
- I have also worked with diagnosed mental health issues
It's not uncommon for some clients to come to counselling for one issue, only to realise how much it helps them - fuelling a desire to work at a much deeper level with more complex issues. Many clients who attend counselling gain a great deal of confidence, which enables them to grow and develop skills to deal with day to day issues.

What is counselling?
Counselling Is a form of psychological therapy that offers people a chance to change how they feel and to live better life? Counselling is also helpful for people who are feeling lost, have suffered loss or might want to go on a personal journey to explore their life.
Do I need counselling?
You may need counselling if you feel you that you want to self-explore find some answers to life, have a closure, overcome a loss, lack confidence or self-esteem, or find that you are facing difficulties in your day to day life.
How does counselling help?
Regular counselling will enable you to find some answers for yourself, come to terms with any difficulties, have a closure from certain problems and hopefully make some positive changes to your life.
