About me and my therapy practice

Are you struggling with stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, cultural issues or relationship problems? As a fully qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist, my main aim is to work alongside you on your journey to replace struggle with peace and harmony.  Sometimes in life, we go through difficult situations that come upon us unexpectedly, which we struggle to deal with. 

I practice integrative counselling and psychotherapy, which is a model that uses techniques from different therapeutic approaches so that the service provided is tailored to suit the specific needs and particular circumstances of each individual client. This means that I will work with you to clarify the issues you may be presenting and to identify what you would like to get out of the therapy sessions, so that you feel fully involved in the process and can take pride in your achievements at the end of our work together.

During times of crisis what we need is a safe and confidential support where we can be listened to without judgement. The therapy setting gives you the space to begin the process of resolving any underlying conflicts and hurts that may be holding you back from reaching your full potential in life.

Practice description

I will work collaboratively with you and have experience of providing short-term sessions where the focus will be on achieving a specific goal, as well as working on a long-term basis with open-ended sessions which would allow us to work on more deep-rooted issues that require adequate time for a change of perspective to be achieved. 

I hold a Post Graduate Diploma as well as an MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have worked on a voluntary basis with MIND in Tower Hamlets and Newham and with the Centre for Better Health in Hackney.

In addition to the foregoing, I hold an Advanced Certificate in Christian Pastoral Care and Counselling as well as a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Originally, I trained and worked as a secondary school teacher which was when my interest in Counselling and Psychotherapy began. 

As a member of the BACP, I abide by their ethical framework for good practice which includes maintaining confidentiality and receiving regular supervision to ensure that the service I provide is of the highest standard.
