About me and my therapy practice

I am a professional counsellor and a mental health worker, trained to detect and offer counselling intervention/psychotherapy on diverse issues before they turn into serious medical or psychiatric problems. As an expert in the counselling profession, I encourage clients to verbalise all challenges and problems they may be facing. I render assistance that lead to positive change in mental health and psychological well-being of clients from diverse background. I also assist workers in work settings/organisations to address work related problems affecting their mental health. My clients enjoy and are assured of the highest level of confidentiality.

Practice description

I currently work as a professional counsellor/therapist and a senior lecturer in the Department of Educational Foundations (Guidance and Counselling) at the Faculty of Education, University of Lagos. I have been in the educational sector for 37 years, which includes 21 years in the counselling profession. In addition to my duties as a senior lecturer, I am the departmental practicum coordinator in charge of supervision of trainee counsellors and a member of the University of Lagos counselling team offering counselling services to students and staff of the University.
