About me

Hello and welcome to all of you who are taking the courageous step to find a therapist to help you.  My clients have often commented on how relaxed and empowered they feel when working with me.  This enables the exploration of feelings, behaviour and thought processes to help clients overcome their concerns and issues.

I work in partnership with my clients, in a collaborative manner to help them to get the very best out of their therapy.  My work ethos is that successful counselling comes from a safe and trusting relationship guided by professional principles.  Your self-care starts here.  You have nothing to lose by contacting me because I believe you are worth investing in.

Are you having difficult or toxic relationships and would like to make positive changes  and develop healthier relationships?   Is your anxiety impacting your life?  I can help you to find coping mechanisms so you can live your life to the full.  Would you like to have a deeper understanding of past trauma and learn how to reconcile your past?  Have recent life events left you feeling low or unable to cope?  I can offer you the support you need to get your life back on track.

Member organisations

BACP

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

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

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.

My therapy room is on the 1st floor and can be accessible by a lift and there is a ramp for wheelchair users.

Additional languages

I speak and understand Punjabi, but am not able to read or right Punjabi.
