I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor based in Blackburn, Lancashire. I hold a BA in Counselling and I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I adhere to their values, morals and code of ethics.

My training over 4-year period has been in Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Solution Focused Theory, Brief Therapy and Brief Therapy with Children and Young People. I have been practising Counselling since September 2016.

I offer short-term and long-term individual counselling either face-to-face, online or telephone, for young persons (14+), adults and older adults. I have experience in the following areas;

  • Sexual Abuse
  • Physical Abuse
  • Emotional Neglect
  • Inner Child Recovery
  • Trauma
  • Bereavement
  • Loss
  • Disconnection to self
  • Cultural/religious identity
  • Spirituality and Faith
  • Impacts of immigration
  • 1st/2nd generation of immigrant parents
  • Self-esteem
  • Self-confidence
  • Stress
  • Anxiety & Depression

My part in your journey is to listen to you, understand you, earn your trust, to witness and feel your life, your loves, losses, trauma and all you hold. My interests lay in the relational qualities of therapy. I believe the therapeutic relationship is the very essence of therapy. Entering a space of relating through open/congruent dialogue can help facilitate growth. I have witnessed and experienced how we assign unconscious ‘roles’ to people we barely know. These roles carry with them conditions and values that may not be yours, yet they seep into your quality of life. Finding who you are, rather than who you ought to be, is freeing and liberating.

I aim to foster a safe and trusting environment, allowing you to be yourself completely, without judgement. I trust your ability to have within yourself, the wisdom to carry yourself forward. You are the expert in your own life and know what you require for your own personal development, growth and coming to terms with losses.
