About me

Hello, thank you for viewing my profile

I am a Integrative Intercultural & Transcultural Psychotherapist. My approach is ethnically and culturally sensitive. I consider the impact of institutional racism, discrimination and stigma when supporting individuals to improve their spiritual, mental health and general well-being.

I have experience in providing psychotherapy for an array of psychological challenges such as: Addiction, Anger, Anxiety, Bereavement & loss, Confidence issues, Depression, Dissociation, Low self-esteem, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Relationship problems/Relationship breakdown, Sexual dysfunction, Spiritual conflicts, Stress, Suicidal behaviours & Self harm, Unresolved or Complicated Grief and much more.

I specialise in working with adult survivors of childhood trauma, sexual trauma and domestic abuse.

About the way I work

I combine an array of the theoretical approaches which include:

African/Black Psychology; which takes into consideration your ethnic/cultural heritage, and experiences past and present in relation to your race, ancestry and spirituality. This is particularly useful when working on attachment and identity issues. (The 'Black' term in an African/Black Psychology context refers to anyone with melanin in their skin, this includes Asians and individuals with mixed ethnic backgrounds).

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT); which aims to identify irrational or negative thoughts that may cause feelings of stress or persistent low mood. I help to modify your thinking patterns to achieve positive cognition's

Psychodynamic approaches; which analytically explore past experiences that may be manifesting in the present. I give insights to enable understanding and personal growth

Transactional Analysis (TA); which explores the way people communicate with each other. I help to identify ways to communicate more effectively when working through common relationship issues.

This list is not exhaustive, the way I work is tailored to accommodate individual therapeutic needs throughout the different stages of the therapeutic process irrespective or race, gender or religious/spiritual beliefs.
