About me

Hi! I hope my brief introduction can help you decide on the support you may be looking for. However, I would recommend you come in for a chat (no charge) and see where I am based. Or feel free to call!

If you haven't accessed therapy previously, I would like to say that it is vital you feel comfortable in the therapy sessions in a space which feels safe and accepting for you. Only then can you say and feel what you are experiencing. This in itself is liberating as you feel heard and understood. Then, we can explore how you want to move forward.

I value that we are individuals in how we see ourselves, our surroundings and our experiences, which is why I am qualified in various theoretical approaches of counselling (see qualifications and experience section).  I am a registered member of the BACP.

I began counselling with the Samaritans (1999) whilst working as an Orthoptist for the NHS. I was drawn towards empowering individuals in helping themselves. Since then, I have worked for a number of organisations with adults and children, providing both short term/ long-term therapy around many issues. Such as, working at Mosaic (sexual abuse), BCS and Northorpe Hall.

At present, I work in a GP practice and for a charity organisation (ESCAYP). I also work alongside a local youth club as well as mosques in providing training and supporting individuals in the context of being a Muslim/Asian.

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.
