About me and my therapy practice

I never imagined that childhood experiences such as changing schools six different times, not as having many friends and a bicycle accident could be considered traumatic events and impact me in adulthood. It was only when I began training to be a counsellor and received personal therapy (as a course requirement) that I began to fully understand.

Since qualifying as a BACP registered counsellor, it has been my passion and quest to help people struggling with various issues including depression, low self-worth, anxiety, anger, grief, relationships and trauma related issues.

I use an integrative style of counselling as I believe every person is different and therefore should not be pigeon-holed into a one style fits all approach.

Cultural Diversity - I am able to relate with individuals from various cultural backgrounds as I have lived in different cities of the world including Italy, France, Southern Africa and the UK. I was also born into an extended family that included relatives from Sweden, Scotland, USA, Iran, Trinidad, South Africa and Zambia. As such, I have a deep appreciation of the diversity, mixed heritage and the rich tapestry of mankind which I feel very comfortable working within.

Couples Therapy and Premarital Counselling - I have especially enjoyed working with inter-racial couples covering all the main relationship issues using the Prepare-Enrich programme.

If you are looking for someone who is non-judgmental, compassionate, has a good listening ear and really cares about helping people, then you have found the right person.

Practice description

My approach is very cultural sensitive and one that looks at the whole person, taking into account your background, upbringing and life experiences. 

I also enjoy using a creative approach which is tailor-suited to your needs by incorporating hobbies and interests that you may have. 

My first session

I offer a free 30 minute consultation by telephone or video. This will give you a chance to ask me any questions you may have about the therapeutic service I provide.

We will then arrange a suitable date and time when our first session which will be an assessment can begin. The assessment will help me understand the nature of your needs.
