I am an experienced counsellor who has also taught Counselling and Psychology to pre-university students. What I can offer you is someone who listens empathetically and interactively with an accumulated lifetime's interest in this area of work.
If you are looking for someone to discuss issues that are affecting your well-being or preventing you from leading a fulfilling and rewarding life, psychotherapy or counselling can help bring about the changes you want to make. You may decide you need only a few sessions to deal with concerns that have begun to dominate and disrupt your life, or you may want longer term psychotherapy/counselling.
What I have to offer as a counsellor:
A wide-ranging knowledge of Psychology and Psychotherapy/Counselling.
Alongside my psychotherapy practice, I have taught Psychology for more than 20 years to college students studying Mental Health Nursing and students applying for undergraduate degrees in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
I have also taught Counselling Skills to college students training to become Social Workers or Counsellors.
My Psychotherapy training involved many different disciplines, which I can utilise to cater for each person’s unique needs. For example, although I am not a Cognitive-Behavioural therapist, I can use these techniques to assist in making practical changes.
My heritage is mixed, Indian and British, which affords intrinsic knowledge of cultural diversity and similarities. One example is Eastern mysticism and its contribution to the development of self-awareness and to stilling the mind.
My approach is interactive as I think therapy is most effective when it is collaborative.
