About me

I am a chartered counselling psychologist registered with the BPS and HCPC. I have been working privately for 18years. I am Anglo Indian half Indian and half English from my mother's side. I spent 25 years in India and studied in English boarding schools and universities.

I completed my masters in psychology 1986 and left for the UK. I have my second masters with BPS in the UK. This has deepened my knowledge of living in two cultures and find this experience very helpful when working with people who left home or moved countries and even towns to then suffer specific problems related to this transition.

I am 52 years old and have been studying psychology from 1981and practicing from 1998. I work integrative ly but lean towards cognitive behavioural psychology.

i have worked at the Portsmouth university, counselling students, and in the NHS.

Training, qualifications & experience
