About me and my therapy practice

One thing I love about counselling is its acceptance of people and their struggles as they are, now, without the need for proof of distress. Whatever your reasons for seeking out counselling, I am here to listen, aim to understand and, collaboratively, to create a space where you can explore and process what you need to at your own pace.

Practice description

Being an integrative counsellor means that, whilst I work with person-centred underpinnings, I also draw on a variety of other models to find a tailored approach that works best for you. 

My person-centred foundation means I believe that each of us has the capacity to grow given the right conditions. Therefore I work to co-create a space with you which facilitates those conditions you need to grow and develop: a warm, empathetic and non-judgemental acceptance of you and your current circumstances. 

Some other models of counselling I call upon are psychodynamic (working with your past to understand your present); parts work (viewing the self as made up of multiple parts and communicating with these parts in various ways) and I also work creatively if you feel that would work for you.

I am committed to anti-oppressive practice and have over two years experience working with ethnically diverse clients, along with my own lived experience as a mixed race person.

Unfortunately at this time I do not offer concessionary rates in private practice as I view my work at Nilaari Agency as my way of helping to broaden access to counselling.

My first session

I offer a free 20 minute intial phone or video call. If you decide you would like to meet for a full introductory session, this is at a discounted rate of £30 for the hour. From then on, if you would like to continue counselling, sessions are £50/hour.
