About me

My friends call me Yinka. I am a counsellor based in Liverpool sharing my time between a H.E. institution and a young persons suicide prevention charity as a Suicide Prevention Adviser. In between I manage a private practice.

My work is extensive supporting individuals experiencing an array of issues from anxiety, domestic abuse, alcohol and substance misuse through to working with armed forces veterans, suicidal ideation, sexual abuse and trauma.

As a qualified tutor, I equally provide training on a range of issues including emotional resilience, health & well being as well as trauma focused training and discrimination. I can offer you a safe space to be you; within a a process that is non-judgemental and transparent so that you can identify and meet your own goals.

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.

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.
