About me

Having had a personal and professional experience of talking therapy, I am passionate about my work as a therapist. I am a qualified, experienced bilingual relationship psychotherapist based in North West London (off West Heath Road). I work with adults and couples in a very collaborative non-judgemental way. I believe that the client is the expert and I am the facilitator.

About my work

When two individuals from two different narratives come together, there are bound to be similarities and differences. Both these similarities and differences could be very welcoming in the beginning of the relationship but as the relationship continues these attributes could manifest itself in many forms such as persistent arguments, stuckness, anger, frustration, loss of communication, loss of intimacy, affairs, anxiety,depression etc. With my knowledge, skill and professional experience, we could work together to untangle such relationship issues and make meaning of them.

I am very curious about individual narratives, like for example your childhood experiences, family tree, immigration history, cultural beliefs and social narratives. I will help you understand the effect of these narratives on you as well on the system around you. Through our conversations, I will link the present to the past and the past to the present.

I offer a safe, confidential and supportive environment to help you share your difficulties with me. I am a registered member of BACP and I follow their ethical guidelines.

What to expect in your first session

I would start with an initial assessment which would last for 75 minutes and if you agree to go ahead, then we will meet once weekly for 50 minutes.
