About me

Life is full of its ups and downs, and during the difficult times, it may feel, for some, that there is no one to turn to. However, this does not need to be the case, as one can get support and understanding through counselling

People may seek counselling for different reasons. You may approach counselling if you are finding it hard to cope with the pressures of work or family life. It could be that you have lost a loved one, or you are having relationship difficulties.

Counselling provides a safe confidential space in which your thoughts and feelings can be voiced, heard and explored with another, without the fear of being judged or being offered advice. It allows you the space to make sense of your own situation. Talking about your thoughts, feelings and worries can help clarify the issue(s) troubling you. This is all part of the process of counselling which can help you feel less burdened and isolated and more supported and accepted.


About me.

I am a psychotherapeutic counsellor, who practices an Integrative Approach. I believe in utilising the valuable contributions made by various schools of counselling rather than being limited by one approach. This means I can offer a flexible and caring approach to each individual and their unique needs.


In addition to my private practice, I have experience working for the NHS and for charitable organisations. I have gained specialised experience in working with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Complex Trauma. This work has provided me with a valuable opportunity to work with Refugees and understand other cultures, particularly, how one needs to be sensitive to others beliefs, ethnicity and culture when working therapeutically. I also have extensive experience with working with survivors of Domestic and Honour based Violence.

I have more recently trained as a Life and Wellness coach. If you feel you are feeling "stuck" in your present life, be it in a job, relationship or in a particular situation, you may benefit from talking through goals to help you achieve a more satisfactory outcome.  A life coach is someone that looks to empower others by helping them make, meet and exceed goals in both their personal and professional lives and I hope I will be the one to help you achieve your own personal goals.

As a trained wellness coach I can support you through a transitional period of you wanting to achieve a healthier and more successful lifestyle. I am trained in helping clients overcome difficulties with managing chronic health conditions, weight management and smoking cessation.

Life and wellness coaching has grown to be a hugely successful form of talking therapy, to the extent that it has helped turn people's lives around.

I offer open-ended counselling as well as short-term and focused therapy.  I am fluent in Urdu, Punjabi and Hindi in addition to English and able to offer sessions to those who feel more comfortable in communicating in their mother tongue.

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.

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.
