To put it simply, I believe every individual is unique and will respond differently to different types of therapy. And this brings me to my belief in the power of integrative therapy! My approach is centred around figuring out what would work best for you and adapting therapy to match your needs! I combine components of cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic, schema, humanistic and solution-focused therapies.
Born and raised in a very multicultural environment, I find myself at ease working with individuals of many different backgrounds. Adapting therapy techniques and approaches to individuals’ cultures, religions and backgrounds is also a major research interest of mine.
Creative expression is another one of my passions and I enjoy writing poetry, articles, as well as short stories.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified psychotherapist (Master’s level), registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have also undergone additional extensive training in Schema Therapy which aims to specifically help individuals with personality disorders.
My experience includes a wide range of clients, including bereavement, depression, trauma, anxiety, major life changes, divorce, infertility and miscarriage.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
