Professional Qualifications, accreditations and memberships:
I have studied for three years to obtain a BSc (Hons) in Counselling & Psychological Science.

I have received additional training on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Counselling for bereavement and loss and attended various workshops on how to work with people’s narrative.
I am registered as a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with the British Psychological Society and I comply with their code of ethics (License 261550).
I am regulated by the Health & Care Professions Council and I comply with their regulations and code of ethics (License PYL29100).
I have been working in the NHS and independent organizations since 2009.
I have offered individual and group therapy both short-term and long-term to children, adolescents, and working adults experiencing various psychological difficulties such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, interpersonal difficulties, bereavement, psychosis.
My vision is to enable people of all ages and their loved ones to live fulfilling and meaningful lives by providing a reflective practice and engaging in any task that was ethically and client oriented.
The main reason why I offer therapy is because I believe that everyone’s story deserves to be heard and everyone’s truth deserves to be listened to.
With this in mind, I create a safe place where you can talk about your experiences, your emotions, your thoughts and your beliefs.
I have learnt to work in an integrative and relational way and my approach is individually tailored to help you to make sense of your experiences, set goals and make new choices that can lead you to a life worth living.
