About me

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

I work with young people (16+) and adults who are experiencing a range of issues including relational difficulties, trauma, abuse, depression, anxiety, bereavement, loss,  and difficulties associated with confidence and self-esteem. 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.

My approach is to work alongside you to guide you to a better understanding of your situation, this may include exploring how past events are impacting you in the present as well as helping you to develop useful coping strategies to manage thoughts, feelings or behaviours.  

I will work collaboratively with you, by agreeing how we will work together, by respecting your right to make your own decisions and empowering you to safely explore aspects of your life, past or present at your own pace.

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

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.
