Counsellor and Psychotherapist
Life can be challenging. Connecting with a therapist through talking in a safe space can be empowering. I am here to walk alongside you. That is my philosophy.
I have profound experiences of working on diverse problems with clients from different backgrounds. In particular, I have extensively been working on trauma related issues including sexual violence both for acute and historical events. One of the important aspects of healing from traumatic experiences is to regain a sense of power back in your life. I listen to your own narrative, and we will focus on regaining your power back in your life as well as coping with your day-to-day difficulties.
I also believe that we don't need to have a significant event to access therapy. Therapeutic space can be beneficial for those who don't have a specific issue, but just want to change something in your life and/or to explore yourself.
I respect the impact of the community, the society, the culture, the nature, and the world on our lives. I integrate these perspectives into my practice, and try to understand things that you are facing in a wider context.
I am an accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist at the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
