About me

Hello, I am a qualified Counsellor, Registered BACP Member and work within their ethical guidelines.

Therapy with me will provide a safe and confidential space, where together, we will explore the difficulties you are experiencing and work towards your desired outcomes.

Life can sometimes be challenging with its setbacks, traumas and tragedies, and these can impact us in many ways.  The decision to seek and begin a counselling journey can feel like a daunting experience. I can support you, to feel at ease, by providing a warm, non-judgemental and supportive space where you feel accepted and heard. We will work together to safely explore the aspects of your life you choose to work on while you make your new life decisions.

I provide my clients with an authentic therapeutic space that is unique to them and their individual needs by integrating various counselling approaches and techniques and drawing on my training and experience. Most importantly building a good therapeutic relationship with my clients based on trust and mutual respect is key to my practice.

I also offer a guaranteed, completely confidential service within the South Asian community.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Postgraduate Diploma - Counselling & Psychotherapy
  • Postgraduate Certificate - Counselling and Interpersonal Skills
  • BSc(Hons) - Behavioural Sciences
  • Online and Telephone Counselling

I have gained valuable experience as a counsellor in a Women safe space and for a charitable organisation in Bradford.

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.

Accessibility

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.
