About me

I am a creative holistic psychotherapist and trauma-informed yoga teacher, offering individualized therapy; integrating evidence-based, creative approaches that enrich one's path to healing. The tools we use depend on the individual but they can range from visual art, movement, breath-work, theatre, creative writing, tapping, and any other creative modalities.

I believe in empowering my clients to discover their unique innate healing tools that would enable them to gain sovereignty in their inner-work journeys. My approach lies in the understanding that we all have the capacity to self-heal. Why self-healing? We are a part of nature; and nature is self-sustaining, self-regenerating, and self-healing. So are we. We can apply the concept of sustainability to ourselves, and I can help you do that.

I work with both children and adults. I can offer therapy in English, French, and Arabic. Due to my international working experience, I hold a vast awareness of cultural diversity.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified HCPC registered art psychotherapist, special educator, and trauma-informed yoga teacher. I have ten years of international experience in a combination of these settings, working with both adults and children:

– Eating disorders
– Autism

* I do not diagnose nor rely on diagnosis for the full picture. I believe these offer only the tip of the iceberg.

Health and Care Professions Council

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
