I am a student member of the BACP and adhere to their Code of Ethics. I am training to be a counsellor at the Minster Centre and hope to complete my qualification by early 2020.
As an integrative counsellor I work with a range of approaches so I can walk side by side with you as you explore your inner world. My aim is to provide a safe non-judgemental space in which you can share all aspects of yourself, working towards re-integrating those parts which may have been denied or forgotten.
I believe that we all have the ability to grow and thrive in our lives. In my experience my growth has often meant I’ve needed to confront long held ideas about myself and the world. I find this an ongoing and valuable process in learning to move through life mindfully with awareness. It is my experience that therapy holds the potential for us to explore new ways of being and relating in terms of facilitating a deeper connection to ourselves as well as another. It is when we are truly seen and heard by another that it allows us to most fully be ourselves.
Being from a minority culture myself, I’m sensitive to how difference can leave us feeling excluded or isolated. Having grappled with some of these issues in my own life, I feel it has given me a genuine curiosity and widened my understanding. I feel it is possible to gain our power by working through issues which once caused us incredible pain.
I work at Spiral on Wednesdays.
