You have your own map; I’ll shine the light on it eventually, the sun will rise again in your life and you’ll no longer need my light to assist you.

I am a qualified, integrative counsellor, I am passionate about supporting others, I work with adults, children and young people. When we experience difficulties in life we often feel isolated and alone, counselling can help overcome painful experiences and feelings. I provide a confidential, warm, friendly space where you are listened to and what you say matters. My role is to help you make sense of your world so you can discover how to move forward in your life.

I graduated from Leeds Beckett University gaining a Level 6 BSc Degree in Therapeutic Counselling. I'm a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). This means that I am bound and adhere to the BACP's ethical framework for good practice to work safely and in the best interest of clients.

My own journey has been the driving force and motivation to assist individuals to remove barriers and overcome their difficulties and I would be privileged to share your journey. Using my own mixed heritage experiences I work with diverse clients to celebrate who they are, to assist the development of a positive identity. I have many years experience of successfully supporting clients and working with diverse students of all ages to flourish and achieve in their education. I am trained and skilled to work with complex and learning difficulties.

What I want to offer you as your counsellor

Empathy, unconditional positive regard, genuineness and trust.

l will provide a safe, comfortable, confidential environment to listen and accept what you know and feel without judgement that values your feelings, views and difficulties. I will work at your pace and use approaches that are best suited to your needs and difficulties to assist you to understand your experiences, thoughts and feelings. Making sense of your world can be difficult. I will provide you with support throughout the counselling process so you can find your own solutions to your concerns and issues.
