About me

Slogan & Core Belief

"Everyone can transform from the Ugly Duckling to the Swan they are meant to be"

I would like to support you to try to find out the reason /root of the difficulty. We can work together using different tools that can be beneficial to achieve your goal and to gain a new insight. I can offer you: a safe place to express how are you feeling with no judgements and keeping the information that we share in confidential and professional manner.

What do I love the most of this career?

The relationship that you develop with another human being is honest, respectful and maybe the best one.

What makes me Unique

  • I can speak four languages: Spanish, English, Hindi and Sindhi.

Because of my cultural background (being raised with Indian values) in a western world, in this case, Spain and following the tradition of getting married and coming to live in the UK for the past 25 years. 

In 2008 I got happily divorced and I became a single mum of 2 boys (aged 21 and 19 now) and a daughter ( aged 17 now). I learnt to drive and found myself, the best bit was that after doing jobs in retail and voluntary work, I found my vocation. I followed my path and educated myself as a BACP Psychotherapist to be able to do a job I love now.

What you get working with me?:

  • You will be able to talk to someone in your own language
  • I can understand the differences and cultural diversities
  • I know how hard is to Break the conditioning rules of society
  • I was a client myself in a therapy room and I had to overcome my personal demons and skeletons and it is really scary and bravery is needed
  • I offer to counsel in the comfort of your home, by home visiting or online 
  • Around your schedule Monday to Friday from 9:30 am to 6:30 pm

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
