About me

Young woman of mixed ethnicity, BACP registered (MBACP), also currently training to be a doctor in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy (DCPsych).

As COVID-19 disrupts our lives you may find yourself feeling emotionally overwhelmed, anxious, lonely, trapped and even feeling a huge sense of loss. You may have been struggling for some time and not got around to addressing it and now that something may be feeling a little bigger right now.

Counselling can help during these difficult times; offering you a confidential space to explore the struggles you are facing and the impact they may be having on your relationships, work-life and wellbeing.

Feeling emotionally overwhelmed can be lonely, and through counselling I will support you in addressing your current situation and potentially looking back at painful times from the past and how they might be limiting you now.

Counselling can be a difficult process, acknowledging that you need counselling can be hard, work in the room can also be challenging and painful. However it can also be a positive freeing experience, bringing about insight and awareness, a change in relationships and a personal sense of being.

ONLINE - during this period I am only offering online video counselling and telephone counselling. I want to encourage you that just like face-to-face counselling, these methods becomes more and more natural as our relationship develops and the work done, with adjustments, is as effective.

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 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.
