About me

Coronavirus has impacted tremendously on all aspects in life. To provide greater access to those who are struggling during the period of 1st April 2020 till 30th June 2020 I am offering free online/telephone sessions to NHS workers and a discounted rate to key workers. Please get in touch for further details.

Life can be complicated and sometimes painful and seeking help can be a daunting task.

I like to invite clients to an initial consultation which I offer free of charge which provides an opportunity for me to understand what concerns you and how I may help. It also provides you with the chance to see how comfortable you are in sharing and exploring your life with me.

I am a fully qualified, accredited and experienced psychotherapist/counsellor. I have worked with a wide-range of issues such as anxiety, isolation, stress, depression and relationship difficulties. These can be the result of present circumstances, trauma, bereavement, stress or childhood experiences. I believe that every person is unique and therefore therapy should meet individual needs.

I am happy to talk to you on the phone as a first step, so please contact me to discuss any concerns you may have.

I am located in North West London (St. Johns Wood) and am easily accessible by transport links (Jubilee line and numerous bus routes).

I offer individual, face-to-face sessions as well as Skype and telephone sessions. I work on both short-term (12 sessions) and long-term basis and also offer therapy in Urdu.

I have experience in working with people with dementia and offer therapy to dementia carers. I can provide the opportunity for people with dementia and their carers to come to therapy together to facilitate communication and understanding.

I have experience in offering therapy to people struggling with bereavement as well as those with a diagnosis of life-limiting illness.

I bring a deep understanding of issues around being in a foreign land and cultural differences to my work.

Accessibility

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.
