About me

I am an experienced, qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I am an accredited member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and a graduate member of British Psychological Society (BPS), adhering to their ethical framework strictly. I have longstanding experience of working in the field of counselling and psychotherapy based in various mental health settings.

I am working as a counsellor for University of Cambridge Counselling Services where I have gained a wealth of experience, offering short term therapy to university students with a wide range of personal, developmental and academic-related problems. I am currently also working at Cambridge Counselling Services where I offer short and long term therapy tailored towards the needs of the clients with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, work-related stress, grief, addiction, self-harm, abuse, relationship difficulties, self-worth and body image, post-natal depression and parental issues. I have previously worked at NHS Inclusion Cambridgeshire offering therapeutic services to clients with substance abuse and addiction issues.

I work as an integrative psychotherapist. The bulk of my training has been focused on existential phenomenological approach. Existential therapy looks at the here and now, exploring the human condition as a whole and what it means for an individual. I am able to use different approaches based on the needs of the client including psychodynamic and humanistic approaches as well as CBT. My services are available to all adults 17 years of age and above and to all ethnic group regardless of race, culture and religion.

My aim is to provide a warm, safe and confidential environment in which clients feel comfortable to talk about their issues. I work with my clients to enable them to face the anxieties of life head on and to embrace the freedom of choice everyone possesses. I encourage them to take full responsibility for their choices and live more authentically whilst taking ownership of their lives, finding meaning in their lives and to live fully in the present.
