Talking about our intimate thoughts, struggles and secrets can be the most difficult thing anyone can do. It could be an underlying feeling that something isn’t right, needs clarity or has to change that brings you to counselling.
I believe whatever happens in our childhood can shape who we are now and how we relate to ourselves and others. I use my skills to help individuals and couples identify and understand patterns that are no longer serving them. Together, we work on improving your relationships and life, in the most beneficial way.
Through, my gentle but insightful approach, I have an innate sense of how to use my expertise to help you explore and understand the source of the issue. With warmth and empathy, I help both individuals and couples in developing strength, resilience and resourcefulness during this process of change.
I offer brief and long term counselling for both couples and individuals. My experience ranges from managing issues such as communication, conflict, anxiety, depression, gender identity, infidelity and sexuality. My wish is to enable my clients to see themselves with new eyes and heightened awareness. I offer bilingual counselling as I am fluent in Arabic and French. I look forward to working with you.
Sessions are available daytime, early mornings and evenings Monday to Friday.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained as an integrative counsellor (psychodynamic and systemic). I am also a qualified relationship counsellor currently working with couples and individuals at Relate. I am a registered member of 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.
Accredited register membership

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).
