About me

Having time to explore your thoughts and feelings in this hectic society we live today can be a rare comfort. Counselling allows you to have a space where you come first and your thoughts, feelings and emotions are put in the forefront, in other words, every part of you is fully accepted.

I have 20 years’ worth of experience, dealing with a wide range of Mental Health
Problems, Emotional Issues and General Well-being such as Depression,
Relationships Difficulties, Loss and Bereavement, Anxiety, Stress, Affairs and
Betrayals, Trauma, Identity Issues and Sexual Assault.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) working both in the private practice and in the voluntary sector aiding individuals in their psychological well-being. I work within the ethical guidelines of the BACP to provide a caring, neutral and respectful relationship to my clients to ultimately help them reach your fullest potential.

I intend to assist you in exploring your past and present relationships and allow you to gain more clarity and insight into any difficulties you may be facing.

This therapeutic relationship enables us to contain painful feelings that can be explored in a safe environment at your own time and comfort. This method of therapy allows you to be free from the shackles of your past and be in the moment, ultimately building a healthy relationship with oneself and others around you.

I specialise in dealing with: Youths, Parents, Cultural Issues and Ethnic Alienation.
I also have experience working as a motivational speaker and as a family and individual conflict resolution facilitator. I also work with a minority population, the criminal justice system, schools, colleges, consulted on prominent boards within the local authority and empowering women projects throughout the UK.

Currently, a proud member of Somali Youth Development Resource Centre (SYDRC) as a Psychotherapist and Youth Counsellor.

Training, qualifications & experience

I understand that each clients needs are different and I tailor my approach unique to you. The psychological approaches that can be used are:

-Psychodynamic: Working with the inner self and its influence on past and present complexes to overcome issues of depression, in where you feel as if you have lost meaning in your lives and have difficulty forming or maintaining personal relationships.

-Integrative: A combination of different approaches in response to the clients presenting issues to allow them to view themselves in a better light.

-Humanistic: providing an environment which allows us to explore how you genuinely feel and by giving you the opportunity to understand your most intricate thoughts and feelings that may have been previously denied.

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.

  • Cultural Identity Crisis
  • Ethnic Alienation
  • Marriage Counselling
