About me

My personal and professional experience in life as a Black Male has cultivated a desire in me to support and promote any individual's autonomy and need to find their own voice in any aspect of their life. This drives me to provide a space of hope and encouragement with all of my clients through a non judgement, empathic, genuine attitude especially towards boys/men from ethnic backgrounds who feel misunderstood and angry and are not sure why.

I am a qualified counsellor/psychotherapist informed with 15 years experience in the health and social care industry working with individuals and families in assessment units, homes, schools and in the community. I worked with people from many different backgrounds/cultures, from primary school age to adult, with individuals dealing with isolation, low self esteem and conflicting family dynamics, to mental health conditions, learning disabilities and substances misuse issues.

My theoretical model is Integrative and it fuses Psychodynamic (exploring past experience - via relationships and family attachments that affect the present behaviour, interactions and relationships) and Person Centred (a non judgemental, empathic, honest here and now experience) approach.This approach aids towards a personal tailored therapy as I can draw knowledge and techniques from various schools of thought (CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Gestalt, art and play therapy etc).

Training, qualifications & experience

  • CPCAB Level 5 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling
  • CPCAB Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
