About me

Are you experiencing anxiety, panic, depression, relationship or family issues? I can help you.

Sharing problems with someone can help you through difficult times in your life.  As an experienced counsellor, I will work with you to help make those difficulties become more manageable.

Working together we can find positive ways forward.

How I work

As an Integrative Counsellor with over 10 years experience, I believe there is no single approach that suits everyone. I tailor my work to your specific needs and work effectively with each person in a unique and individual way.

Our relationship is key, so I aim to create a warm, welcoming and nurturing atmosphere to help you feel comfortable to explore your issues. Working together, we can find positive ways forward.

Life can feel very challenging and sometimes overwhelming, but change is possible. I feel privileged to be a part of my clients’ journeys, and I hope to be a positive part of your journey too.

What to expect

Through my work with clients and my own personal experience, I understand how difficult life can feel.

All sessions take place in a warm, welcoming, accepting and non-judgemental environment, providing a comfortable space for you to explore your issues.

I am an experienced counsellor with over 10 years experience, providing confidential therapy for adults. I am based in Kings Heath, Birmingham, and have daytime appointments available.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
