About me

As a Counselling Psychologist & Psychotherapist, with an academic Doctoral background and 12 years of work experience, I can help you with issues such as: 

Self-esteem and self-confidence
Sadness and depression
Guilt, regret, and shame
Loneliness and isolation
Stress and burn-out, career issues or academic stress, performance anxiety
Sexuality, gender identity
Identity, migration challenges, sense of belonging
Cross-cultural issues
Relationships and intimacy
Parenting challenges and generational gap

In a safe and confidential therapeutic space, I will be there to help you to explore your past and present life experiences, to make sense of personal beliefs, values, hopes, and visions. I will assist you to come to terms and acceptance of your past which is impacting the present. I will assist you to create personal meaning in your present and future projects. And above all, I will help you to find balance in life.

Together we will work on your awareness and find new ways of relating to the world. This will open you up to engaging more fully with life and finding new opportunities for growth and change.  The process will also help you to build up your self-esteem, self-confidence, and resilience and make you stronger to face future life challenges.

We will look at where you have come from, where you are currently at, and where you would like to go from here, along with trying to find a way to achieve that in the best possible way.

My clients have always found it useful to examine their lives within the four existential dimensions that are usually addressed in existential therapy, and these are universal to everyone. So, we would explore your lived experiences, through the lens of the personal, physical, social, and spiritual dimensions of your lived world. I will work passionately with you to address your unique way of making sense of your world at your pace and intensity. 

I offer long-term therapy, as I believe any examination and exploration of your inner and outer life can be a long process and can typically take up to a year at least. However, I also work on a short-term basis if you need to address a specific kind of issue with a specific objective or aim.

To book an appointment you may send me an email.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist & Psychotherapist and I am a registered member of the British Psychological Society (BPS - DCoP) and a registered Practitioner Psychologist with the Health Care and Professions Council (HCPC). I stand by their code of ethics in all aspects of my practice. 

I have years of experience providing psychological support for issues ranging from trauma, gender and sexual identity, geographical displacement, depression, anxiety, loneliness, addictions, asylum-seeking process, refugees, relationships, attachment,  parenting, and a myriad of cultural approaches. These include psychotherapy & psychoeducational group facilitation, supporting clients experiencing severe mental health issues due to domestic violence and substance misuse, such as alcohol and drugs. I also worked with adults suffering from Schizophrenia, Borderline Personality, and other Personality Disorders.

Currently, I work internationally online, in English, Armenian and Farsi. In addition to my private work, I offer low-cost psychoeducational workshops for the NHS in the UK in Farsi language on well-being, stress management, emotions & how to manage them, trauma & treatment options, search for meaning, a sense of belonging, and cross-cultural challenges.
