About me

Free 15-minute phone consultation.


*As well as counselling, I offer eye movement depersonalisation and reprocessing (EMDR). This is a tried-and-tested therapy for anyone who is experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or has experienced difficulties such as anxiety, depression, phobias and panic attacks. Please contact me to find out more.*

I provide a confidential, non-judgemental space for you to become more self-aware and develop in your own unique way. My work is primarily relational talking therapy and led by you, the client. I also believe that using specific interventions in a therapist-led way, when relevant, is helpful.

As you'll have your own unique reasons for therapy, I encourage you to have an initial assessment session to find out whether I'm the right therapist for you, and for me to find out more about your needs.

I work with people from all backgrounds. I am particularly experienced in working with anxiety, LGBT / sexuality issues, cultural issues for people from a south Asian or Muslim background, loss and bereavement.

I'm interested in:

- helping form or strengthen your own individual narrative and identity
- looking at how the unconscious and childhood is impacting on the present
- helping address the symptoms of anxiety (such as racing thoughts and panic attacks), as well as work away at the root causes (which can stem from past traumas and other events)
- helping improve self-esteem

At the heart of my approach Is a belief in your capacity to overcome difficulties. I also believe that, and as shown by evidence, the client-counsellor relationship itself is the most significant factor when it comes to lasting change and healing.

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.


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.

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.

There is step-free access via a lift to my practice at Exchange House. I can also offer remote counselling via video.
