About me and my therapy practice

With over twenty-three years of experience in the mental health field, I am a skilled bilingual psychotherapist with a Doctorate-level qualification. I offer therapy services in both English and Farsi, utilising an integrative approach tailored to each client's unique needs. My expertise spans Humanistic, Psychoanalytic, Existential, and Cognitive Behavioural approaches, with a specialisation in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Cross-Cultural therapy. 

As a cross-cultural therapist, I specialise in working with individuals and couples who come from diverse backgrounds. This includes couples from mixed cultural backgrounds as well as individuals who may be struggling with their identity within a different culture.

Moreover, I am certified as an advanced-level Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist. EMDR therapy is designed to address conditions involving traumatic memories. I utilise the most advanced equipment available (EMDR Kit), incorporating personalised visual and auditory bilateral stimuli, to optimise the effectiveness of the therapy process.

As a clinical supervisor, I support students in training and provide guidance to colleagues in their professional practice.

In my therapeutic role, I guide clients through their journey in a non-judgmental and collaborative manner, fostering autonomy and empowering them to discover their strengths and internal resources. I work with individuals, couples, and families, addressing various issues including relationship problems, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, anger management, stress, confidence and self-esteem, phobias, OCD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), HIV-related concerns, sexual abuse, bereavement, and addiction.

The use of the title Dr in this directory listing relates to the member’s doctorate qualification. However, this does not imply a general medical qualification.

Practice description

As an experienced therapist, I am dedicated to providing compassionate and effective therapy services to individuals, couples, and families. As a proficient bilingual psychotherapist with a Doctorate-level qualification, I offer therapy sessions in both English and Farsi.

Here's what you can expect from our sessions:

- Initial Assessment Session: Our first session will be an opportunity for us to get to know each other and explore your concerns in depth. I'll ask questions to understand your background, current struggles, and goals for therapy. This initial assessment is crucial for us to establish a strong foundation for our work together.

- Collaborative Goal Setting: Based on the insights gained from the initial assessment, we will work together to set therapeutic goals that are meaningful and achievable for you. I believe in a collaborative approach, where your input is valued and respected. Your goals will guide our work and serve as markers for progress throughout our time together.

- Personalised Therapy: I tailor my therapeutic approach to suit your unique needs and preferences. Drawing from a range of therapeutic modalities, including Humanistic, Psychoanalytic, Existential, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), I will incorporate techniques that are most effective for you. Our 50 minute sessions will be a space for exploration, insight, and growth.

- Supportive Environment: I provide a safe and non-judgmental environment where you can freely express yourself and explore your emotions. You can trust that our sessions are confidential and focused on your well-being.

- Monitoring Progress: s we work towards your goals, we will regularly assess your progress together. I encourage open communication about what is and isn't working for you in therapy, so we can make adjustments as needed to ensure you are getting the most out of our time together.

I believe in the power of therapy to facilitate positive change and help you live a more fulfilling life.
