My experience as a counsellor, gives me an understanding and intrinsic belief in human resilience and our ability to grow and develop. I offer you a safe space where together we can explore those aspects of you that you would like to look at, to give you a better understanding of yourself. I provide a compassionate and hopeful environment which encourages you to grow, gain confidence and self-esteem and above all, become curious about yourself once again. I help you explore your cultural, social and political backgrounds and how it has impacted on you; your growth and development in terms of gender roles and sexuality and its impact on your mental well being.
I offer counselling in English and in Hindi. Short term and open ended counselling is available.
I work from Monday - Friday; closed on Thursday. Evening appointments on the same days are also available Counselling hours are negotiable and available from 9.00 am to 8 pm.
I work from home in a quiet residential area, easily accessable by public transport.

I am an Integrative Counsellor, BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) and a member of BAAT (Black & Asian Therapist Network). I offer specialist counselling in working with cultural differences, in Race and gender. I have particular training in addiction and bereavement and have worked with young people in a University Counselling Service, an Addiction Service, MIND, a Women & Health Service and a Bereavement Service. I have worked with refugees and displaced people with issues around trauma. I have worked in a developing country, using counselling skills to help bring about social change and a better understanding of mental health.
In my therapeutic work, I am deeply interested in helping you explore psychosomatic stress through body work; I use techniques of Mindfulness and Breathing as well as imagery and dreams.
