About me

How do I work?

I believe that through exploring and clarification of specific personal situations, feelings or emotions, we can gain a better understanding of ourselves and our own needs. As awareness increases, we can open up to the possibility of experiencing and feeling compassion for the aspects of ourselves we find hardest to accept and ultimately aid in healing. As we befriend more of ourselves, we are likely to live our lives with more purpose, meaning and joy.

I hope, with my experience and awareness, I can help and support you too with your own unique journey.

I provide both long and short term counselling sessions for individuals that suits your individual needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Master's degree in Gestalt Psychotherapy (UKCP validated) along with a Clinical Diploma from The Metanoia Institute, London. I abide by the code of ethics of The Metanoia Institute and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) which I am a member of.

I have been practising as a psychotherapist for 5 years in various settings as well as privately.

Accessibility

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.
