About me

I am a qualified Counsellor, offering sessions in Bow and Brixton, as well as online to individuals and couples.

Sometimes we find ourselves stuck in life, unable to move forward. We may have something that’s getting in the way of us reaching our full potential. Maybe we aren’t quite sure what’s going on but something doesn’t feel right; for example in regards to work, or maybe experiencing some difficulty in relationships, in processing a bereavement or a loss of some sort, or it may be a longstanding difficulty.

These issues and many others alike, can throw us off course in life, losing ourselves momentarily and needing support to get through a tough time.

Or maybe more simply, there is a curiosity and desire to get to know yourself better.

I believe that you have it in you to figure out a way forward, and with this in mind I like to offer a supporting environment free of judgement to help in this process. That said, I work on the premise that you are the expert in your life, and I aim to encourage your voice within to become stronger. I do this by holding a space for authentic connection where together we can begin to explore and understand your inner world, figuring out what is important along the way that can help in the various parts of your life.

Quote-: Only when we feel totally able to be ourselves can we begin to look within.

Feeling unhappy and unsatisfied with life is something I can understand, especially the disconnection with self which can arise through traumatic events and through life’s ups and downs and we can be unaware of the havoc that is being caused.

The experience of going for therapy was hugely important and beneficial to my development and my ongoing journey and I want to pass this on to others.

I also can understand what it’s like to be thinking about reaching out for help for the first time and how daunting it can be, so please know there's someone who gets that on the other end of this profile. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I offer individual and couple counselling sessions at my private practice in Mile End and at Life Counsel, a clinic in Brixton. Mindfulness, meditation and spirituality are concepts that I am drawn to in my personal journey, elements of which are reflected in my work. I have over 10 years’ experience working in the corporate world as well as experience working within the music industry.

I am a qualified Counsellor with a BA (Hons) and a Clinical Diploma in Person Centred Counselling. I am also a qualified Couples Counsellor. I provided support to individuals with a wide variety of issues during 4 years working for the mental health charity Mind, an IAPT service, where I qualified as a ‘Counselling for Depression’ (CfD) practitioner working briefly (from 8 weeks) as well as longer term.

I grew up multi-culturally in London, which has sparked a huge interest in diversity over the years, as well as particular struggles with belonging to different minority groups.

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
Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
