About me

Being listened to and being heard, is powerful. Having space to open up and talk, space that is safe and free of judgement, helps. This is what I do, I can help. I am passionate about therapy, healing, recovery and finding inner peace. I aim to provide a safe space, rooted in trust, surrounded by confidentiality, with respect and dignity at the heart of therapy.

I offer short-term and long-term counselling on a one-to-one basis for young persons (14+) and adults, and have experience in the following areas;

  • Sexual abuse
  • Physical Abuse
  • Emotional Neglect
  • Inner Child Recovery
  • Trauma
  • Bereavement
  • Loss
  • Disconnection to self
  • Life stages and transitions
  • Cultural/religious identity
  • Impacts of immigration
  • 1st/2nd generation of immigrant parents
  • Carers support
  • Self-esteem
  • Self-confidence
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the very essence of therapy and I aim to foster a trusting environment that allows you to be yourself completely, without judgement. I trust your ability to have within yourself, the wisdom to carry yourself forward. You are the expert in your own life and know what you require for your own personal development, growth and coming to terms with losses. Tuning into your inner self, your inner voice, can bring forth epiphanies and realisation of your full potential.

My part in your journey is to listen to you, understand you, earn your trust, to witness and feel your life, your loves, losses, trauma, all you carry and feedback to you what you tell me, so you can begin hearing and witnessing yourself.
