My counselling journey began from an early age when I recognised how prevalent mental health issues were in my communities and how badly they affected one’s ability to think, feel and live healthily and happily. I realised how much we (myself included) prioritised physical health; taking trips to the GP when feeling unwell. However often you feel as though you can’t or shouldn’t give as much attention to your mental health. As I delved further into my psychology career I began to better understand the human mind and behaviour and so wanted to use this understanding to contribute to the growing need for mental health support.
I am now an Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor and a member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy). This means I adhere to the professional ethical guidelines set out in the BACP code of ethics. The decision to name my practice identity therapies stems from my belief that ultimately counselling supports people in becoming their best, most stable, content and healthy ‘self’.
