About me

*Currently offering sessions via Zoom and Telephone only*

I am a fully qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in London, and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I adhere to ethical and professional conduct when working with clients and this is guided by the BACP framework. I am also a practitioner member of the Black, African, and Asian Therapy Network (BAATN).

My way of working is integrative, which means I use various methods and theories from a range of modalities to tailor my style to the individual's needs. I feel that there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to therapy and that each client must be worked with, in an individual manner.

​I believe that every person inherently possesses unique resources for personal growth, and I am here to support you on your journey towards this. Through collaborative work, we can explore different strategies to facilitate you achieving your desired outcome.

​The therapeutic relationship is paramount in working through difficulties faced by an individual and so I would recommend having a complimentary initial chat to see if I am the right fit for you. This will also enable us to look at which type of therapy may be beneficial, too.

My Approach

I am influenced by Person-Centred and Psychodynamic concepts in my work, as I like to get to the root cause of what is pertinent for the client at present, whilst always remembering that ‘the client is an expert in their own lives’. For more short-term counselling, I use ‘Gestalt’, ‘Cognitive Behavioural Therapy’ (CBT) and ‘Solution Focused Brief Therapy’ techniques. If you are new to therapy, then these terms may not be familiar to you and so this is absolutely something that we will further discuss in our initial chat. The most important thing is, I like to find out more about you as an individual and consequently tailor my approach to your needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed a level 3 foundation course in counselling children, with the leading children's mental health charity 'Place2Be', and an accredited diploma course with the University of East London, where I became a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist.

My role as a support manager for a tuition company, for almost eight years, enabled me to provide counselling and coaching to both primary and secondary school pupils, as well as the young tutor and centre management teams.

During my therapy training I conducted a placement in a primary school with  ‘Place2Be’, and post qualification I worked as a Counsellor and School Project Manager in a secondary school within Tower Hamlets. I have previously volunteered at ‘The Mix’ charity where I provided online and telephone support to children and young people aged between 10-25 years old.

I offer both short-term counselling as well as open-ended psychotherapy and recommend a minimum number of eight sessions, to begin with.

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
