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

I am  qualified in online and telephone counselling and supervision.  I have a Certificate in Islamic 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.

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

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.

Key details

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.
