About me

Many people struggle with issues around mental health, I can offer a therapeutic space - opportunity to grow and flourish in ways one may not anticipate; the experience aims to empower in many ways and to explore difficult issues in a safe, warm, therapeutic space. It has become my passion and life goal to create and provide you with the tools needed to grow, flourish and reach your full potential.

Healing towards freedom starts with exploring your inner self, delving into your subconscious and step by step identifying issues which may hinder you, to then working towards a healed mind, I will offer emotional support and understanding as it may be difficult at times confiding in people around, who may not always understand or may offer their own opinion and judgement without actively listening. I can also offer understanding of culture and religion and the issues/dilemmas one may face around it which at times may be hard to explain.

I am determined to offer a strong therapeutic relationship entailing unconditional positive regard, empathy, warmth and confidentiality; we will work towards following your aspirations, ensuring you feel heard and empowered, activating your freedom towards being your authentic, fulfilled self in return providing you with the utmost potential.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
