Who am I?

I have a current CRB Certificate and a working knowledge of child protection policies and procedures. I am also a member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework. I also hold my own indemnity insurance.

I have a working experience of a wide range of issues and knowledge of underlying legal matters. I offer training and have worked with several organisations including Colleges and Universities, Social Services and Independent Companies. I have also developed and managed two counselling services and delivered several personal development training programmes.

How we work

I offer a confidential, safe and non-judgemental service to explore thoughts and feelings and help people to find and have well-being in their lives, which can help make them happier and more content. The sessions aim to help develop and build self-awareness, identify and learn new ways of coping, managing and challenging any difficulties they may be facing.

I am an intergrative counsellor using Humanistic, Cognitive Behavioural models, I also incorporate life coaching skills in my work with clients. All the models I work with can help clients explore and become aware of blocks in their lives and work towards making changes.

From my own experience, as a black female counsellor, one of my expertise is to use a culturally sensitive approach in my work.

All services can be referred or self-referrals.  I work integratively using both Western and African and Caribbean approaches, as well as working holistically.  I incorporate Cognitive Behavioural, Solution Focused, humanistic and psychodynamic and coaching approaches in my work.

Where we are

Sessions are held in South London and Croydon. I also offer in-house sessions at your workplace.

I also offer phone and online/remote sessions via Zoom, Skype or Microsoft Teams.
