I am a therapist with extensive experience in offering short and long-term therapy. I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and am a registered member of the BACP and also the BAATN (Black and Asian Therapists Network). I have been working therapeutically for over seven years; helping individuals to explore and understand past experiences, relationships and difficult feelings.
For many years I worked as a school counsellor for children and staff, and as well as my private practice, I also provide therapy on the You Make It program – a charity for social change, which empowers and educates marginalised young women of colour.
I work with an integrated approach; drawing mainly on psychodynamic and person centred thinking and receiving all my clients as individuals, adapting my practice to their needs. I listen without judgment, with an open heart and mind. The idea that simply being authentically alongside someone and listening attentively – to really attune, hear and see a person – can have a profound impact on a person’s emotional well-being and self worth, is a cornerstone of my work as a therapist. This, alongside an empathic, safe and confidential space for self-reflection, and the process of linking past and present experiences with historic emotional responses, particularly from childhood, can result in noticeable shifts in present behaviour patterns and have a positive and lasting impact on mental health and self care.
I am afraid I do not see clients funding sessions via private medical insurance.
