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:

Anxiety
Depression
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

Training, qualifications & experience

BSc Hons Cognitive Science (British Psychological Society accredited)
MSc Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy
CTA - Certified Transactional Analyst

Over 20 years experience in practice. Specialising in Post Traumatic Stress and internal cultural conflict. I also offer EMDR sessions.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
