About me

I’m a fully-qualified integrative therapist with experience in helping people to:

  • Overcome unhealthy people pleasing behaviours
  • Work on Self-Worth, Confidence and be kinder to themselves,
  • Manage stress and anxiety,
  • Move forward following Narcissistic Abuse,
  • Navigate and make sense of conflicting Cultural Issues, (inc. interracial and intercultural relationships),
  • Process Trauma. Including Childhood Trauma and Domestic Abuse.

I have experience working with a wide range of client backgrounds across the UK and Worldwide.

How I Practice

For the first few sessions, I lean to a more directive approach as we get to know each other better. I will ask you questions about yourself, your childhood (cliché, but important!), your current situation, why you’ve come to therapy and importantly what you’d like to gain from your therapy journey.

In sessions, you won’t find a blank face nodding in agreement to everything you say. I’ve been described as having a ‘kind but firm’ approach. I believe in the power of thoughtful challenge to support you to get to a point where you can be your own therapist, actualise your true potential and live the life you truly desire and deserve.

It’s important to me that you feel comfortable with your therapist, and I place huge importance on building an empathic and confidential environment where you feel safe to discuss anything you want to without judgement.

Working together, I can help you to build resilience and provide you with the tools you need to achieve a resolution and move forward. Supporting you to shed the expectations from family, culture, society or what you think you should be doing and instead embrace your true self.

My Approach

As an integrative therapist and coach, I’m trained in and draw upon a range of proven approaches to craft a therapy journey bespoke to you – taking culture and intersectionality into account.

Using reparative therapeutic tools and resources to help you to process and develop understanding; and coaching techniques as well as energy psychology to support you in making effective, long-term change.

Approaches include Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis, Solution-Focussed Therapy and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or Tapping).

How to work with me

I offer 1:1 weekly or bi-weekly therapy slots. I work online (worldwide), over the phone or in-person.

Whilst on-going therapy can be helpful to many, you may find that you have a specific issue that you’d like to focus on. In this case, you may find the Breakthrough Single Session Therapy fits the bill.

The first step for ongoing therapy is to book a 50 minute introductory consultation which will give you the opportunity to discuss your concerns and explore what would best help you meet your needs and goals. There will be time to ask any questions you have, whilst deciding if we are a good fit. If we are both happy, we will contract to continue working together.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
