About me

I am an accredited counsellor with the BACP (MBACP Accred). I am an Integrative counsellor and I work with children, adolescents and adults. I work with clients of diverse backgrounds on multiple issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, abuse, addiction, self-harm, trauma, and relationship problems and many more.

I am a competent, caring, hardworking and conscientious counsellor with extensive skills in professional counselling. I build a comfortable rapport, trust and empathy with all clients and provide undivided attention with understanding and excellent listening skills to clients.

I work with individual clients.

My counselling office is based in Kent - Medway area. My clinical work is supervised by an approved supervisor.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP
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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I work with Christians, who want to find a balance between their faith and counselling. Also, work with Africans and countries who see mental illness as demonic.

Do you feel all alone in terms of your problems? You need not feel lonely anymore as help is closer to you now. I'm only a phone call/text away (07908 341 872).

Further information

As a Nigerian, I like working with Africans and I have a passion for working with them as I have an understanding of African cultures.

One of my greatest achievements is that I have worked with people who had been written off and many have become productive to themselves and the society. I also believe no one is inherently evil and therefore positive change is possible if the client is willing to progress in life. I work in a non-judgemental manner.
