About me

My name is Saya, and I am a clinical psychologist with 12 years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families in the NHS.

Many things can bring us to therapy - feeling low, anxious, uncertain of ourselves.  We might also notice patterns in our life that don't feel helpful to us, or perhaps our relationships with others don't feel as satisfying or connected as we'd like them to be.

I believe that therapy is first and foremost a relationship, and hopefully one in which we grow to feel seen, understood and valued. Through this relationship we can begin to take risks and develop new understandings of ourselves and others.

I often find psychodynamic ideas helpful in my practice, which makes space for the importance of early life experiences in shaping how we view ourselves, others and the world.  It also makes use of the relationship between therapist and client as a reflection of the relationships outside of the therapy room, providing valuable insight into our ways of navigating our personal and emotional worlds.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
