About me

I am of South Indian origin, however I have grown up in the UK most of my life and so English is my first language. I have experienced much confusion in my life because of the apparent conflict between the values of my heritage and those which I have grown up with in British society. Due to my personal challenges, I take a careful and considered approach in understanding your cultural frame of reference and work respectfully with it.

I work mainly within the humanistic school of transactional analysis (TA) and am a fully certified Transactional Analyst Psychotherapist (CTA).

I hold an MSc in TA and have over 12 years of practical experience. I also hold a BSc with honours in Cognitive Science and am a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy, the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and the Institute of Transactional Analysis.

I work with the following issues:

Panic attacks
Post traumatic stress syndrome
Stress (general, work and family)
Eating disorders and weight management
Sexual identity conflict
Relationship issues
Low self esteem
Cultural identity issues
Addiction drugs and alcohol
