About me

My aim is to help you with any problem or emotional pain, which you are finding hard to handle on your own, resolve these difficulties, achieve your goals and provide you with the tools to ensure long-lasting success.

I support couples, individuals, and organisations, and author of a self-help book called 'Dump the Baggage; A Therapist’s Guide to Building Self-Esteem and Positive Relationships’.

I am passionate about my work and I am committed to providing an excellent service to help my clients:

  • Improve self-esteem
  • Develop healthy relationships
  • Provide clear techniques, strategies along with unique ways and ideas to treat stress, anxiety and depression
  • Fulfil overall therapeutic goals within 6 sessions

I have over ten years of experience and a proven track record of success rate with my clients and I will support them throughout the entire journey of change.

Counselling can help you with those difficult times in life when you need to resolve a problem that is stopping you from achieving your personal best. As a therapist, I believe that there is no problem that cannot be resolved to your satisfaction and there are no limits to what can be achieved within counselling.

I believe that the relationship between therapist and client can be a vehicle for growth.

Together, we can explore how events of the past, often from childhood, have contributed to your current situation. This process will promote emotional growth at your own pace. This will also help you to gain greater self-awareness, increase your esteem and help you to understand the relationship with yourself and others. This process will create a sense of inner peace and enable you to understand your emotions and gain more self-identify.

I specialise in issues associated with:

Anxiety/Stress
Couple therapy
Depression
Childhood related issues
Low self-esteem

 Couple & Relationship Therapy 

Whether you are in a personal dilemma or relationship crisis, I can help you change the future of your relationship. 

Maybe you just can not seem to get along anymore, and you are not sure why. 

Couple therapy will help you understand yourself better in relation to your partner, the relationship dynamic, and explore what keeps you stuck – which often involves recurring patterns from the past.

My aim is to support you to gain a deeper awareness of the conscious and unconscious relationship dynamics which will help you to create a better understanding and enable both partners to relate to each other in a healthier way.

Choosing the right therapist is highly essential; that is why I  offer a free 15-minute initial telephone consultation so that you have a clear idea of the therapeutic process and how I  work.

I can help with issues such as:

Communication 

Managing Arguments and Conflict 

Affairs /Infidelity

Emotional and Sexual intimacy 

Shame and Vulnerability  

Trust 

Separation 

Dealing with Change 

Financial Issues 

Family and Parenting 

I am a fully qualified counsellor, a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I practice within the organisation's ethical framework.

I am the founder of the Personal Growth and Development Centre.

I am also a qualified personal development and career coach as well as a clinical supervisor, supervising counsellors and staff requiring external supervision.

As a non-judgemental therapist, I provide a safe, confidential and supportive environment where you can talk, express and reflect on any difficulties and feelings that you may find difficult to share with others.

I use different counselling approaches such as; Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Gestalt approach. I will use the appropriate counselling approach(es) to meet your personal needs and help you understand the root cause of your problems.

I also provide integrative clinical supervision for trainees/qualified counsellors and counselling placements.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

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).

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.
