About me

Hello! I'm Robina, and welcome to my page!

You may be feeling excited about self discovery, or maybe apprehensive and daunted about the counselling process. My initial chat with you will help you to decide if you can confide in me.

As an integrative counsellor, I use a blend of therapeutic approaches to support your aims or goals. You may want short term counselling,  or longer term. Either way, I work collaboratively with clients while providing a safe, non-judgemental environment for them to be or discover who they are. 

Counselling is not just for people experiencing a crisis or life challenges; it can be a great space to for self-reflection and personal growth.

Perhaps you are here because you're experiencing relationship difficulties, stress or trauma. You may be wanting to manage your anxiety, discuss a late Autism / ADHD diagnosis, or improve your low mood.

If you are Asian, black and/or Muslim or of another religion, this may include looking at faith, culture and family dynamics. However you identify, please feel free to bring your whole self to therapy and at your pace; I will be with you every step of the way to support you.

The therapeutic relationship is key to how comfortable you feel during counselling sessions. Please book a free 20 minute online / telephone consultation to see if we're a good therapeutic match.

In person counselling sessions are only available on Saturdays in Central Manchester. 

I look forward to sharing your journey of self-discovery, healing and growth with you.

Thank you.

Member organisations

BACP
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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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).

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.

Entrance to the building and toilets are both accessible. There is a small lift that accommodates one wheelchair.
