About me

Hello and thank you for taking some time to explore my profile.

I can understand it hasn't been easy for you lately or for some time now, and I am glad that you want to give therapy a chance in exploring the emotions and feelings that you are struggling with.

It must be hard trying to find and to choose the right one for you, and for that reason I am offering a free 30 minutes phone call or video call, session, in order for you to see if I am a good match for what you are looking for.

In my sessions I apply an integrative approach in Counselling and Psychotherapy which means that I will use different skills to ensure I am meeting your needs. 

As a counsellor, I work with clients experiencing a wide range of emotional and psychological difficulties  such as depression, anxiety, stress, anger, frustration, parenthood, childhood, loss, the need to manage harmful emotions and behaviours, or difficulties with coping with traumatic experience and events, relationship difficulties that are affecting their ability to manage life.

Talking therapy will offer you the safe space to be  listened to, understood, heard and it will help you find ways to deal with emotions and feelings such as guilt, anger, pride, anxiety, fear, shame, confusion and grief. I am committed  to offer you the support needed in developing achievable plans for the future, and creating coping strategies in order to bring about effective change and/or enhance your well-being.

I am committed to listen without judgement, be empathetic, encourage and support to  empower you by setting clear boundaries  and be professional by respecting the right to be shown respect, dignity and consideration. 

"Without commitment you never start and without consistency you never finish" 

I can't promise that everything will be amazing and you will be happy all the time, after having therapy, but I can promise that:

I will be non judgemental and empathetic
I will be working within my competence and with professionalism 
I will offer a safe and confidential space where you can explore any feelings and/or emotions 
I will be the person that you can build a trustworthy connection with
I will work with you to develop goals and plans, 
I will support you to progress and create change
I will explain how I work and reasons to use my interventions
I will keep up to date with my professional training  and have regular supervision in order to ensure an ethical and professional service 
I will commit to personal and professional development
I will be open minded and treat everyone with dignity and respect 

Carl Jung ( psychiatrist and psychoanalyst ) once said:

“The principle aim of psychotherapy is not to transport one to an impossible state of happiness but to help (the client) acquire steadfastness and patience in the face of suffering .“

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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).
