About me

Are you feeling anxious or depressed and unable to talk to anyone? Do you suffer with anxiety and depression? 

Counselling can help you to heal through a process of self -reflection.

In this safe space, I can provide the environment in which you can explore what is troubling you, without the fear of judgement, or the intrusion of someone else’s opinions.

I am a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist (MBACP & MNCS Accredited) and Supervisor who has experience of supporting clients through a wide variety of issues. I also offer Relationship and Couple Counselling.  I believe the quality of the therapeutic relationship is the context in which healing and growth can - and will - take place. I will not claim to be an expert in your life, or offer advice. My aim is for you to be more fully yourself, with the freedom to grow and the ability to change.

As a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS), I am bound by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in counselling and psychotherapy, and am subject to their Professional Conduct Procedures.

My work is 'person-centred' which means you and your unique issues and needs are my central concerns.  The benefits of counselling can include increased confidence and self-esteem, an ability to cope better, clarification of confused thoughts and feelings, personal insight and the potential to move forward and grow. Because Your Life Matters.

Training, qualifications & experience

MSc Psychology & Neuroscience of Mental Health (currently) BA Hons, PGCE, QTS, Diploma in Counselling, Certificate in Couples Counselling, Advanced Certificate in Clinical Supervision (BPS Approved), Advanced Certificate in Online Clinical Supervision.  I am qualified in online and telephone counselling.  I have a Certificate in Islamic Psychotherapy & Counselling and can work with the Islamic model of psychology. 

In addition to my private practice, I have worked in an NHS GP practice, St Christopher’s Hospice, Family Counselling Services and Further/ Higher Education. I am a teacher, trainer, lecturer and mentor. 

Areas in which I specialise include:

  • Bereavement Counselling & Bereavement Groupwork & Training
  • Grief & Loss Trauma
  • Couples/Relationship Counselling
  • Islamic Psychotherapy
  • Supervision 

I am also bilingual and can also offer counselling sessions in Arabic.

I am especially interested in spiritual issues, how we attach meaning to our life and how our beliefs and faith impact the issues we are facing.

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.
