About me

Hello and thank you for viewing my profile

I am an Intercultural Psychotherapist, supervisor & trainer and the Director of Mabadiliko Intercultural Therapy CIC, whereby I currently facilitate the initial assessment consultation and allocate to one of my qualified associate therapists. 

Mabadiliko Intercultural Therapy CIC is a private trauma informed Intercultural therapy service, made up of a small team of qualified associate therapists and trainee counsellors. We offer mid-longer term Intercultural psychotherapy online and at the Mabadiliko Intercultural Therapy Centre in Forest Hill Southeast London.

Please see https://mabadilikotherapy.com/meet-the-team for more details

We combine different therapeutic approaches and styles to meet individual needs and acknowledge how your roots can influence your well-being and mental health experiences. We consider culture, ethnicity race and spirituality as fundamental aspects that contribute towards your healing process.

We have experience in providing psychotherapy for an array of psychological challenges such as:

- Addiction

- Anger

- Anxiety

- Bereavement & loss

- Confidence issues

- Childhood, Racial and Sexual trauma

- Depression

- Domestic abuse including emotional and financial abuse

and much more.

We also provide counselling psychotherapy for general well-being challenges, where by you might just want a safe space to reflect and figure some things out by talking with a professional.

Additional services:

- Clinical/Counselling Supervision, reflective professional supervision 

My main theoretical approach is Integrative Psychodynamic, influenced by Intercultural and Relational perspectives. I combine many different approaches to accommodate the needs of the supervisee and the client; and consider the impact of culture, ethnicity and spirituality on individuals regardless of race, gender or sexuality; inclusive of both the therapist/counsellor and client. 

As your supervisor, I will give you constructive feedback to enhance your practice, allowing time to explore you as a person as well as your practice as a counsellor. I will also support with ethical dilemmas, and give practical suggestions to improve your practice and CPD experience.

- Training & workshops

I deliver African-Centred Intercultural training for professionals and psychological practitioner students. Please see https://mabadilikotherapy.com/courses for more information.

I also co-deliver workshops on healing from racial trauma please see https://mabadilikotherapy.com/events for more details

PLEASE NOTE:

I am currently only assessing new clients for Mabadiliko Intercultural Therapy and am not available to provide individual client sessions. After your initial assessment/ consultation, you will be allocated to one of my qualified associate therapists. Your preferences such as gender, ethnicity and speciality of the therapist will be taken into consideration. Please see https://mabadilikotherapy.com/referrals for more details
