About me

After completing my Masters degree in Integrative Counselling I worked with Wandsworth Carers and Westminster Mind as a Honorary Counsellor. Large proportion of my counselling work is related to short term counselling for anxiety and depression.
 
As a Counsellor I have come to realise that in order for a therapeutic change to take place the client needs to feel understood, accepted in the most difficult of circumstances and genuinely cared for. By experiencing empathy and connectedness the client can then find it easier to start applying these same qualities in relation to themselves and their social network. My work also brings together person-centred approach with relational psychodynamic understanding where our unique behavioural patterns and ways of relating to our environment gain a wider understanding. Our strive for connectedness can be also expressed creatively using arts, storytelling and dreams. 
 
There are many ways of working with people to help relieve suffering and psychological pain, therefore I adapt my working style to suit the individual needs and wishes of the client. I nurture a genuine and warm attitude with an empathic, non-judgemental approach where appreciation of client’s cultural context plays an integral part.
