About me

Well done for getting here! Seeking help is the first step to making a positive change. And choosing the right counsellor for you is so important.

I am an Online Person-Centred Therapist. Originally from the UK, I am now based abroad (in the sunny island of Mauritius) I offer online video and e-mail counselling.

As a Person-Centred therapist, I work in a non-directive way. I work with the belief that the client is the expert. Sometimes, we may hit a brick wall with issues that are not allowing us to live a healthy and normal life. It is not always easy to admit that we need help, but in doing so, you are taking care of yourself.

Counselling will provide you with the opportunity to understand yourself better and to move forward in a positive way. In the counselling sessions, through care, time, empathy and no fear of being judged, you will have the space to speak about whatever you wish, and we will work at your pace.

As I work solely online, video sessions are conducted via Zoom.

I also offer e-mail counselling which is helpful for those who might find writing to be an easier way to communicate. Some advantages of e-mail counselling are not needing to plan a specific, recurring time each week. This might be useful if you work in shifts, or have flexible working patterns. E-mail counselling also allows you the time to think about what you want to write about.

I offer a free 30-minute initial session (on Zoom-with or without video if you wish) to assess your objectives and expectations from counselling.

Sessions for video counselling will be 50 minutes each.

The fee for both video and email counselling is £35.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BSc in Psychology and a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling. I am a member of the BACP (The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).

In the past, I have worked with the charity Life Changes, which provides low-cost counselling to individuals. I have also volunteered with Yellow Door (formerly Southampton Rape Crisis).

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.
