About me

My approach

We will work together to identify the best course of therapy to help you lead a more satisfying, joyful life - honouring all your parts in a supportive and caring way. 

​My therapy style is interactive, non-judgmental and collaborative. I provide a confidential and caring counselling service tailored to your individual needs, at a pace that feels comfortable for you.  With awareness and through mindfulness, we will work towards developing a deeper understanding of your needs and how to act on these.

Together, in therapy, we can work on reconnecting with the 'self' in a way that further increases levels of awareness and acceptance. In addition, we will be able to find ways of developing self-regulating skills - using Gestalt and Somatic techniques.

About me

I am a MBACP fully qualified multicultural counsellor, trained in Gestalt therapy and Embodied therapy  - with a background in yoga, mindfulness and Eastern philosophy.

Why work with me

Besides my commitment and perseverance, I know personally what it's like to be in a dark place and how opening up in therapy can really help. Through therapy I reconnected with myself and learned how to connect with others in a healthy way.

Based on my personal experience, I believe that the therapeutic relationship developed between the client and therapist has deep restorative effects. I trust that through counselling one can find support, a safe space to process feelings, an invitation to challenge thoughts and perspectives as well as increased self-awareness and self-regulation through emotional resilience. 

These are some of the things I help with

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationship problems
  • Family issues
  • Self-esteem
  • Stress
  • Anger 
  • Bereavement
  • Trauma

Please get in touch so that we can discuss an initial session, and what you are looking for from therapy. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a MBACP multicultural counsellor, trained in Gestalt therapy and Integrative Embodied Therapy - with a background in yoga, mindfulness and Eastern philosophy.

I worked for various counselling services in North London as an intercultural counsellor. I have experience working with trauma, addictions, anxiety, depression, grief as well as relationship problems and difficult life events.

I work with people of all ages. I also specialise in working with younger people, helping them negotiate difficult transitions in life, and understanding more about their identity and what they want for the future.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
