About me

Do you feel the need to talk, share, collaborate together with someone to find a way forward or just make sense of some challenges or tangles in your life right now? If yes, counselling might be the right step for you. Counselling is a journey you embark on, a journey of self-exploration, exploration of situations, patterns, relationships or any other aspect in your life that might be challenging. Taking that journey with a counsellor you feel comfortable with is equally important.

As a counsellor, my aim is to create a safe and non-judgemental space where you feel free to start that journey. I believe that all of us have the ability to move forward in spite of challenges, given the right environment and support. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and have extensive experience working with a wide range of clients and a wide range of difficulties that affect people personally.

Please feel free to email, call or text me if you would like to have a free consultation session over phone or video. I also offer flexible timings including evenings and weekends.

Member organisations


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.
