About Me

Hi, I’m a highly qualified and professionally experienced psychotherapist, counsellor and psychologist. As a Person-centred therapist, I offer non-judgemental acceptance and support, as well as my empathic understanding and insight, in a safe and confidential environment. I have abundant experience working with clients from a variety of backgrounds and cultures within the NHS and the private settings, for both the short-term and long-term periods.

I have helped and supported countless clients concerning a wide range of issues: e.g. depression; anxiety; bereavement and loss; abuse (emotional, physical, sexual, etc.) and trauma; pregnancy or miscarriage; parenting issues; relationship issues (marriage, separation, divorce, etc.); identity; sexuality; low self-esteem or confidence; self-hatred; guilt and shame; eating disorder or body dysmorphia; stress and life crisis; self-harm and suicidal ideation; racism; cultural adjustment issues, etc.

I understand that talking about own issues, difficulties or distress can be very stressful. My role is to be a companion in a therapeutic journey through which I listen to clients closely and explore their inner world attentively. You can expect to feel listened to, understood and supported by me throughout your therapeutic journey with me which will lead you to a therapeutic change.

My Qualifications:
MSc in Contemporary Person Centred Psychotherapy and Applications [with a Distinction] – Middlesex University
MSc in Social and Cultural Psychology [with a Distinction] – London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)
Diploma in Contemporary Person-centred Psychotherapy – Metanoia Institute
Diploma in Person-centred Counselling – Metanoia Institute

I have had research articles published in prestigious international psychotherapy and counselling journals. You may find this research article helpful in gaining further insight into how I as a person-centred therapist work with clients.
