In my work I aim to facilitate a safe space to explore whatever may be an issue in a warm, caring and empathic environment. This may include gaining further insights about yourself, your past, present and future. I am passionate in working with people and truly believe that each person is unique and I treat everyone as so.
In my approach as an integrative psychotherapist, I draw on different theories and also use a variety of therapeutic modalities to assist me in understanding my clients. In forming a treatment plan I believe that there is no “one size fits all”.
I hold a Masters Degree in Integrative Psychotherapy and a clinical diploma in Psychodynamic Integrative Counselling awarded by my training institute. I am registered with the UKCP and the BACP and abide by their Code of Ethics and Practice. I have more than five years of experience working with different clientele and different issues.
For the first session I charge a reduced rate of £40 and then onwards my fee is £60 for a 50 minute session. I have a small number of low cost places available for students and those on lower income. Please ask me about those for availability.

You can reach me by either email, SMS text or phone call. If you leave me a message, I will get back to you as soon as I possibly can. In our initial conversation I will endeavour to answer some of the queries that you may have. This phone conversation will take about 15-20 minutes. If you are happy to proceed, we will arrange a time and day for our first session.
In meeting for our first session we can see if we are a fit together. If I am the right therapist for you and if you feel happy to continue, we will decide on the practicalities. Our sessions together are on weekly basis. Each session lasts for 50 minutes. Consider the first six sessions like a prolonged assessment. Following which we will contract together based on how long you would like us to work together. All notes made and any information you provide are entirely confidential.
If I am not the right therapist for you, I will try to suggest someone more suitable for your needs.
