About me

Introducing myself
Hi, my name is Siata. I love working with people to achieve their goals and fulfil their potential. Life can be challenging and change can be difficult, but having the right help and support can make it easier to break free from the things that are holding you back from living well and achieving your goals.

How we can work together
I am a qualified counsellor and I work with clients to live well. If you need help to make a change, such as breaking a bad habit, creating good habits or dealing with a range of issues from anxiety to phobia, I can help you to achieve your personal and professional goals. I provide a warm, safe and confidential space for you to explore the issues on your mind and difficult feelings you may be experiencing. I offer an accepting, non-judgemental place where, together, we can work through these challenges, issues and feelings - whatever they may be.

My experience and my approach
I have over 20 years of experience working in financial services and risk consulting at a senior level. I decided to change careers at the age of 40 to become a therapist because what enjoyed most about my leadership roles was working with people and helping them to become the best versions of themselves - more of who they truly are. I work in an integrative and person-centred way. This means the relationship with the client and the client’s best interest is at the core of my work. I tailor my approach to meet the specific and unique needs of each client. I work to the high ethical and professional standards of the National Counselling Society.

Free initial consultation: Contact me for a free initial consultation to discuss how we can work together to achieve your goals - whatever they are.

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.
