About me and my therapy practice
I offer a Counselling and Psychotherapy service to individuals, families and young people who may be facing personal difficulties and challenges. I am an accredited Counsellor with over 15 years' experience of direct client work particularly with families and young people. I have worked in a range of settings.
Counselling involves providing a safe, containing space for clients to explore their emotional distress. I feel it is important to use the first session to explore ways in which we can work together and address the possible reasons for accessing support at this particular time. I attach great importance in developing a honest, trusting and non- judgemental relationship with my clients.
Although my core training is Psychodynamic I use an integrated approach that brings together different elements of specific therapies. This helps to provide greater flexibility when working with clients and their presenting issues.
I use elements of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy to help clients recognise the relationship between thoughts, feelings and actions so to avoid becoming trapped in negative cycles of thought and behaviour.
I am able to offer counselling in a range of South Asian languages. Multi -Cultural Counselling can provide a therapeutic space for clients to explore their emotions in their mother tongue which will help them to identify with their inner feelings and positively enhance the client - therapist relationship.
