  • experiencing problems in your relationships
  • having difficulties in making transition due to major changes in your life
  • experiencing the loss of who or what was important to you, through separation, divorce or bereavement
  • suffering from a serious and/or terminal illness or having to care for someone suffering from such an illness
  • feeling that you have lost your self confidence or are suffering from low self esteem

  • having constant stress and worry in your work, study or personal life

then you may also be feeling depressed, angry,anxious, tense or ‘empty’. These feelings are your natural responses to major life events, but they can also be overwhelming and very powerful to a degree that where they can effect your ability to effectively deal and cope with demands of life.

Everyone finds it difficult to cope at times and you may need help to deal with difficult issues or major changes.

Counselling and Psychotherapy can help!

Counselling or psychotherapy is an unique process where your concerns are listened to by a professionally trained, skilled, compassionate, emphatic practitioner and who works with you in order to begin to understand and work through the issues which keep you stuck, lethargic or cause you emotional or even in some cases physical pain.

I offer you a confidential, peaceful setting where you can feel safe to talk about yourself freely. Being able to talk freely can be a great relief and helps you take control of your situation.

Training, qualifications & experience

My counselling career started with studying Psychological Services in Education at university in overseas in 1993. My study was based on counselling psychology, psychometric and the psychological foundation of education and I gained a bachelor degree.

After my degree I had worked in both the business and education sectors at the same time (starting in 1997 in overseas). I counselled and provided psychological guidance to children, and young people as well as their social adult environment. I loved the counselling and psychotherapy most within the psychological services, decided to resume my career in this area. For gaining further knowledge and experience in the area of counselling and psychotherapy, I took up 2 year study in a topic of From Psychoanalytic to Psychodynamic Therapies.
Following this I worked on a women’s psychological help line and engaged with my first private practice for adults in overseas.Since I settled in the U.K. I signed up to more study and experience in integration of variety of counselling theory and techniques. This allowed me to gain an Advance Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling. I have worked in many voluntary organisations since 2010 in the U.K.such as counselled refugees and asylum seekers in Derman-London , young people in NO.5 -Reading, children in schools with Place2Be and adults Berkshire Counselling Centre.
In my current private practice providing counselling to individual adults.

Member organisations


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.
