About me

It happens at some point many of us feel distressed and confused. If you are struggling with stress, depression, anxiety, bereavement, low self-esteem, abuse, domestic violence and many others, I can offer you one to one counselling in a safe, warm, confidential space. Also can offer you non-judgmental space, where together we can explore the difficulties you are currently experiencing. I am able to help you to find yourself and ideally, you will be more aware of what is going on in your internal world and life. In our weekly sessions, we can talk about what bothers you; it depends on what you want to share. By exploring your feelings and emotions, you might gain some insights, start to see things differently and understand how to move forward.

I do value diversity, offer open-ended therapy both in English and Bengali. I have a valid DBS Certificate.

Training, qualifications & experience

In my training, I have done Psychodynamic Approach and also some Person Centred, practising as a psychodynamic counsellor. I am a qualified BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) registered counsellor, practising in Wembley. BACP is my main professional body that regulates the counselling profession. My certificate is on Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.

The work experiences I have gathered from Brent careers centre, Harrow Bereavement Care, Brent Bereavement Service and Each Counselling and Support.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

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.
