About me and my therapy practice
A humanistic and integrative therapist, one who is not constrained by theoretical purity, I work holistically, seeking to make meaning out of the complexities of my clients’ everyday existence. As simple as it sounds, I believe nobody is perfect, and we all need fixing. We are born neither good nor bad but have the intrinsic capacity for both and to aspire to be the best we can be. There is capacity for growth and change in everyone, and I will work with you, the client, to facilitate movement towards growth, change and self-actualization. I offer a warm, encouraging and nurturing relationship, that the client will experience as conducive, safe and secure.
The common factor in my approach to therapy is the relationship with the client. the connection is all-important, and counselling has the best chance of a positive outcome when the client experiences the relationship as secure, trustworthy, non-judgemental and healthy.
As well as working with various presenting issues such as abuse, trauma, bereavement, depression, anxiety, and others, I am particularly passionate about working with difference and diversity. As a person of colour, l use my lived experience to bring awareness to issues faced by people who are 'Othered' daily in our society.
People experience and interact with the world around them in many different ways, and there is no one right way of thinking and behaving. Hence, I do not view difference as a deficit. Let us work together to make sense of your own world just the way you experience it.
It is not uncommon for you to feel uncertain about coming to therapy as many people find seeking help or coming to therapy quite daunting. Are you suffering from anxiety, stress, relationship issues, racial identity or needs clarity? I will hold your hand and together we can find meanings and answers in a space where you will feel heard and validated.
Whatever brings you to therapy, I am here to support you in overcoming those challenges. I will empower you with the tools you need to explore, understand and heal, enabling a better relationship with yourself and others. I work with adults, young adults and children from eleven years of age, offering a blend of face to face and remote therapy.
