About me

We humans are influenced by our life events, and they drive our emotional reactions. These events often render us helpless, lonely, and terrified. Sometimes it becomes difficult to express our true feelings and/or needs. Life turns out to be persistently sad, complicated, and filled with negative thoughts. It can happen to anyone, and it is an illness that can be treated. All we need is professional compassionate help to start living again.

The healing process requires lots of love, care, UPR, and confidential safe space (core values). I as an experienced professional establish trusting and non-judgemental relationships with clients to bring out their innate issues and make them feel relieved so that healing can begin. Clients ultimately get their confidence back and become more content.

I promise to surpass your expectations with my comprehensive experience in mental health counselling and my unwavering dedication to your need to overcome emotional challenges. I will help you to be empowered to make changes and to build on your areas of strengths as well as identify areas to improve. I will be committed to make you feel great again.

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.
