About me

I am an integrative counsellor working in central London. In my model of practice I draw on different approaches depending on issues presented, client's unique personality and their specific needs. However, the most important  aspect of my work is creating a safe and supportive relationship with you, the client, where you can feel heard, respected and understood.

The aim of my work is to support and empower you in getting in touch with and exploring your feelings and thoughts and examining how different life experiences impacted on who you are now. This work on connecting to, and safe exploration of, who you are becomes the foundation for processing emotional blocks and gaining deeper awareness of yourself, so that you can arrive at the place from where you are able to make desired changes into your behaviour and start creating your life in a free and conscious way.

I have a particular interest in trauma and how it impacts on peoples' ability to have harmonious relationships with themselves and others. Trauma may have happened as a single event, a series of events or there might have been a prolonged continual exposure to it, sometimes spanning over many generations within the family. Acknowledging it and processing emotional blocks it created opens the door to regaining balance and sense of wellbeing in a traumatised person's life.

Also, as a person of dual heritage, I am interested in exploring cultural and identity issues and how difference impacts on people in their lives.

Training, qualifications & experience

I received qualification from Centre for Personal and Professional Development (CPPD), which is a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accredited training. I am a registered member of the BACP and therefore abide by its professional standards and code of ethics.

My experience varies from primary care (Connaught Surgery), addiction field (Crime Reduction Initiatives), Mind: a mental health charity organisation to working with young people at Haringey Sixth Form Centre, where I practise currently.

My primary education is in visual arts and I see therapy itself as a creative process, where two (or more) people are involved in the act of co-creation of what is a better life for a client, with deeper awareness of their inner and outer world and improved ability to live a more fulfilled life.
