I am a family therapist and clinical supervisor who has worked in the NHS for over 25 years with children, families and hospital and social care staff in supporting relationships and harnessing the resources to enable prosperity, hope and change even in the most difficult of situations. I am also an certified Non Violence Resitance practioner and have used these principles of presence, de-escalation, raising supporters in all my practice. I am also trained in Advanced Integrative Therapy (AIT) - a Body trauma Approach which uses non verbal methods to heal and connect present challenges to past which I use in individual, couple and groups. I am keen on Mindfulness and use these practises to ground and prepare for the work to be done together,
I am a second generation Indian women who lives and works in Birmingham. I am a mother of 2 young women of dual heritage and enjoy conversations around difference, music and youth culture across medias and how these impact on young people and their identities. I also use all the different therapies and approaches in my own life and have had many personal challenges that gives me compassion and strength that everyone has resilience and possibilities to make changes in their lives.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
