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