About me

Currently providing online therapy at a reduced rate via video link and telephone.

Over 10 years experience of working with couples and individuals - I am passionate about helping people achieve their greatest potential recognising their strengths and weaknesses; moving towards a life where they can thrive as individuals.

As an Integrative Counsellor I work collaboratively with clients and draw on different approaches to try to match client/couple needs. I offer short-term and long-term therapy dependant on clients individual needs.

When working with couples, I aim to improve communication between each partner and work towards resolving their difficulties. This process is about enriching and repairing relationships where couples may decide to stay together or separate.

Counselling and psychotherapy provide a safe place to talk in confidence with someone who can offer an alternate perspective.

People come to therapy for a whole range of reasons, most commonly because they feel upset and weighed down by life’s events. It may be that the cause of these difficulties is self-evident and we know where to turn for assistance, but at other times our problems are more complex and need the help of a trained listener to explore the underlying difficulties.

Counselling available in Urdu, Punjabi & Hindi as well as English.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
