Welcome to my profile page. I do hope you find what you need here. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries.
Have you been feeling overwhelmed by life’s pressures? Are you finding your relationships difficult to manage? Are you feeling anxious and finding it hard to cope? Do you feel you are losing sense of who you are and where you are going in life?
Life presents regular challenges, and sometimes it can be difficult to decide how to respond. Together we can unravel your worries, explore what is troubling you and support you in finding your internal resources to find your authentic inner voice and live a more fulfilling life. Counselling is a therapeutic conversation, an interaction. It is different from talking to a friend in that the focus is on your process. Counselling can help in identifying patterns in your life to understand yourself better, empower you to integrate your experiences and be able to better cope in every day life.
If you would like to go ahead and take the first step I can best be contacted via email by pressing the Message me button. We can arrange a time for an initial free 30 minute consultation where you can ask me any questions you might have and we can talk about what you want to get out of counselling. If you are happy to continue we will set up a time for weekly sessions, and review the work on a regular basis. I offer both short term and long term therapy.
I am a qualified counsellor since 2016 and currently completing a Masters degree to further my knowledge. Some of the issues I focus on include relationship issues, anxiety, grief, traumatic life experiences, inner child wounds and challenges of living a multicultural life. I have an interest in the mind body connection and how our thoughts, feelings and body are interconnected. I believe in a holistic approach that supports your mental health and well-being. I am committed to offering a non-judgmental and culturally sensitive space in my practice.

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.

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).
