About Me

Welcome to my site

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) - see their Website for more information. I work according to their principles and ethics.

I use the approach of person centred counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy, which gives you the time and space to explore the issues that are disturbing your life.The vital thing is that I will provide you with the hope that things can get better. Plus provide you with the tools you need to cope well.

I specialise in the areas of immigrants, asylum seekers, and refugees who suffered in their home land and struggled to come to terms with their change in circumstance, any abuse, loss of their family members, trauma, loss of identity, depression, stress etc.

I counsel clients in French, Swahili, Lingala and English.

I offer a first consultation at half price and further sessions on affordable price. I offer day, evening and weekend appointments.

If you are not willing to travel for your sessions for whatever reasons there are few options for you to access the sessions by email, text messages, web cam and telephone.

I also offer a mobile service to meet your needs.

Just remember don’t suffer alone - call me.
