About me and my therapy practice
Based in Harrow, I am an understanding and supportive counsellor and psychotherapist with many years’ experience of helping adults, couples and children deal with difficulties that are causing them emotional distress, anxiety, panic or depression. I provide a confidential environment where you can feel safe in sharing your problems and worries and where we can work together either on a brief or longer term basis to identify a way forward through your challenges. I have particular experience in helping clients work through relationship difficulties, traumatic experiences, abuse, bullying, losses, addictions, personality disorders and emotional / behavioural problems in children. My background makes me well placed to understand the complexity of issues faced by minority clients especially those from South Asia.
There are many counselling approaches and it can be confusing knowing which would suit you best. I use an integrative approach which combines a number of counselling theories and models. The benefit of using this approach is that it pays attention to many aspects of a person's life that play a part in their present difficulties. By adapting the therapy to your particular needs and by jointly exploring your problems I can help you become more aware of the different aspects of your difficulties and their particular meanings for you. Encouraging you to consider alternative perspectives and actively experiment with different ways of thinking and responding may help you find a way forward through your challenges.
I speak English, Urdu, Hindi and French and am a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I follow their codes of ethics and professional practice guidelines.
