About me and my therapy practice
*** Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, I am currently conducting all sessions online through video calls. ***
I am a Cambridge based counsellor working with individuals and couples. My main area of interest is relationships. I can help you with unhelpful patterns in your life that stop you from establishing and maintaining satisfactory relationships with your family, friends and romantic partners. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) therapy which is an evidence-based, gold standard modality for treatment of trauma including PTSD and childhood trauma. It can also be used to help clients to work through difficult or disturbing experiences or self-limiting beliefs. I have also successfully worked with clients who suffer from low self-worth, perfectionism, self-sabotaging behaviour, procrastination, depression, anxiety and a general feeling of being stuck. My goal is to help you transform your life in a positive and meaningful way.
I have an MPhil in Psychology and Education from University of Cambridge. I also have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and Diploma in Relationship Counselling from Relate. My counselling training included Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, CBT and Systemic approaches. In my practice, I work eclectically, borrowing 'tools' from different approaches. This means, I base my intervention on the particular issue brought to therapy by the client as well as what approach I think the client would best respond to. I am however grounded on the Psychodynamic model and I rely heavily on the Person-Centred approach when establishing and maintaining a relationship with my clients, putting a lot of emphasis on being warm, caring, accepting and non-judgemental. I believe the most healing aspect of counselling is the relationship between the counsellor and the client and I am always informed by the relational aspect of therapy.
I am currently conducting all sessions online for the foreseeable future. I completed specialised training in order to practice safely and ethically online and hold a Certificate in Online Counselling.
My first session
Our initial session will be what is called an 'assessment session'. This will allow me to get to know you better so I can give you a more informed feedback regarding my suitability as your counsellor and answer any questions you may have about the process. After this session, you can have a sense of whether you click with me and make a more informed decision regarding whether you would like to start working with me.
