About me

      Welcome to my profile, if you are ready to talk, I am ready to listen!

Whether it's a personal or relationship issue, feelings of despair, a sense hopelessness or lost motivation, at one point or another people from all walks of life experience distress. When life events such as bereavement, divorce, redundancy or health related issues start to feel like a struggle, they have an impact on your emotional, psychological and mental wellbeing.

SO HOW CAN COUNSELLING HELP?

Counselling can help you gain clarity and make sense of your thoughts and feelings. As a professional Counsellor I will emphatically support your journey towards gaining inner peace. I believe each person’s life journey is valuable and by offering you a safe and therapeutic space to talk and reflect, I facilitate your counselling process by listening and empowering your inner ability to heal from within.

HOW LONG ARE THE SESSIONS AND HOW MANY NEEDED?

Sessions last for 50-60 minutes and the number required will depend upon individual needs.  I believe it is important you get to know what the process entails before booking any sessions with me. Contact me via phone/text or email to book a free consultation and decide for yourself if this is going to be right type of therapy for you.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

My academic research was based on cultural and religious barriers to accessing mental health services within ethnic minorities. This enabled me to gain insight to the specific needs of these communities, therefore I am able to work with a culturally and religiously sensitive approach.  I have also facilitated several groups, working with South Asian Women, raising awareness, challenging stigma and cultural misconceptions towards mental health issues.
