About me and my therapy practice

I have worked in the mental health sector for over five years, supporting adults who have been diagnosed with mental health disorders, such as Schizophrenia and anxiety disorders, at times in combination with substance misuse. I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist working in private practice and in the NHS. I work on a short-term and long-term basis with clients aged 16+ from a variety of different backgrounds. I am passionate about my work with clients and I am committed to providing a professional yet meaningful service. I am registered with the BACP and I am listed in The Black African and Asian Therapy Network (BAATN) therapist directory and Counselling Directory.

I practise an integrated model of counselling, allowing me to draw om a wide range of psychological theories to help you find your way forward. At the heart of my practise lies the person-centred philosophy; meaning I empathically listen with a non-judgemental attitude and believe that we all have the ability to grow and develop. My psychodynamic thinking and reflections allow me to consider your past and present experiences and relationships - from your early childhood years to the present day - and recognise any links and/or repeated patterns. In addition to this, my practise introduces CBT, when appropriate. CBT provides the tools to help recognise and link thoughts to feelings and behaviour, and can be particularly useful when working with anxiety or depression. My approach is tailored to each unique client and their needs, ensuring that a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship is at the core of the work. 

Therapy sessions can take place face-to-face or via Zoom/telephone. 

After contacting me, I will arrange a free 20-minute telephone consultation to discuss what you would like from counselling, your availability and any questions you may have.
