About me

I am a UKCP and HCPC registered Counselling Psychologist (Reg No. PYL31856). Over the past 10 years, I have experience of working in primary and secondary mental health care, as well as inpatient servivces. Currently, I work for Sussex Community Foundation NHS Trust providing psychological therapy for patients with long-term health conditions and practice privately in the Brighton and Hove area.

I enjoy working with clients from diverse backgrounds and with a range of difficulties. I am interested in how our past relationships and experiences affect how we currently function in life. My particular interests are in mindfulness-based interventions and trauma-focused yoga practices as an adjunctive to therapy.

On a more personal note, I was born in Burma (Myanmar) and moved to the U.K. when I was a young child. Growing up in two cultures has given me an appreciation of people from different backgrounds and identities, understand the challenges this can pose and helps me bring a grounded and practical approach to therapy.


I offer individual therapy on an open-ended basis or for an agreed period of time.

The sessions often have a structured approach and fall on the same time and day each week, unless agreed otherwise. Depending on what you want to achieve from therapy, I work together with you to help you understand and make sense of your difficulties, as well as to develop effective coping skills and strategies to move forward.

If you would like to know more about my service and how I can help you, please contact me on 07414 132700 or info@mindbodydynamics.co.uk

Further information

What happens in the first session?

In the initial consultation, we will discuss your concerns and reasons for seeking therapy. This usually involves asking questions about your background and assessing your needs, as well as what you would like to achieve in therapy. It is also an opportunity for you to see if I am the right therapist for you, to ask any questions and voice particular concerns. You are under no obligation to commit to working with me after the first meeting if you feel that I am not right for you.

How many sessions to I need?

If you decide to pursue therapy, a session usually takes place once a week but no fixed number of sessions is required. It depends on your personal needs and circumstances and what you want out of therapy. This can be discussed and negotiated with me in the initial session and reviewed on an ongoing basis.
