About me

You may be experiencing feelings that are challenging and would like to explore them in a safe, non-judgemental, and confidential space. Reaching out for support can be daunting and it takes courage to seek help that you may need. Counselling can give you the opportunity to work through these challenges that you may be facing at your pace.

I am an individual and relationship person-centred qualified practitioner, with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) offering over 10 years’ experience  working with young people and adults. I am fully insured and hold a DBS to work with children and adults, My broad experience in the charity sector has been with a youth agency, women’s domestic violence agency, postnatal women’s group, secondary school, college and currently working with Adult Mental Health. I also work with a team of proffessionals in a independent Clinic that providers complementary therapies and health related services.

My experience, training, and holistic approach offers my clients a space to speak openly about what may be troubling them so we can work in a therapeutic mutual relationship to explore any concerns.

In my private office space i have a wide and diverse range of clients from different cultures and experiences including the BAME community and can offer counselling sessions in English, Hindi and Urdu Language.

I am Mental Health (MHFA) England trained and have over 5 years’ experience working within this area.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership
