I am a professionally trained and qualified counsellor with many years of experience in providing counselling and psychotherapy to individuals facing a range of issues. My aim is to help people to make positive changes in their life. I have spent a number of years working for organisations in London with individuals suffering from emotional difficulties. My previous experience has allowed me to empower clients who have been affected by traumatic events that they have experienced in their life which can in turn affect their well-being and mental health.
I provide counselling to young people, adults, male or female. I have worked with clients with a range of emotional difficulties such as:
· Anxiety, Stress and Depression, Affairs and Betrayals, Bereavement, Bullying, Carer Support, Childhood Trauma, Domestic Violence, Emotional Abuse, Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), Forced Marriage, Honour Based Violence, Low Self-Confidence, Physical Abuse, Rape, Separation and Divorce, Sexual Abuse, Self-harm/Suicidal Thoughts, Spirituality,Trauma Experiences, Work-Related Stress
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Registered Member (MBACP) of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I abide by the code of ethics and professional practice standards and complaints procedures of BACP.
I have a degree in Psychology and MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have conducted research on silence in therapeutic relationships. My approach is largely integrative and I will draw on therapeutic modalities e.g. humanistic, psychoanalytic and existential approaches when needing to understand individual presenting difficulties.
As a member of the BACP I ensure that I am up-to-date with new areas of research and training within the field. I am committed to my own professional development and continues to study and develop my interests as part of my continuing professional development.

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).
