About me and my therapy practice

ABOUT ME

I am a trained and experienced psychotherapist and hold a degree in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy and a Masters' degree in Intercultural Communication & Relationships. Both gained from the University of Surrey. I have some eight years of experience working with individuals and have helped them cope with anxiety, worries, stress, depression. 


ABOUT YOU AND THERAPY

I understand it's not easy to choose a therapist, and taking the time to search for a suitable match is essential. My practice offers you a comforting, safe and confidential place to be and to tell your story.

Sessions will be all about you, where you can share your experiences, whether these originate from childhood or adulthood. Perhaps it will be the first time you can tell your story, find relief, and understand how your experiences are still affecting your life. It's good to seek help and work on issues that are bothering you. I offer both long and short term therapy.

ADDITIONAL SERVICE: INTERCULTURAL PSYCHOTHERAPY

I also offer Intercultural psychotherapy as a specialised service, which is especially beneficial amongst culturally diverse individuals. Intercultural psychotherapy is particularly sensitive to the importance of race, ethnicity and religion.

How does Intercultural psychotherapy differ from usual psychotherapy?

Clients will typically discuss the same issues in both types of therapies. However, culturally diverse clients will also discuss some additional problems concerning their cultural heritage or background in Intercultural psychotherapy.

Intercultural psychotherapy also recognises the differences and similarities of various aspects of culture between the client and therapist. Culturally diverse clients often seek to connect with their therapist on a cultural level to enable a deeper level of communication and understanding. It can allow a more effective therapeutic experience for culturally diverse individuals.

Which additional issues do culturally diverse individuals discuss in Intercultural Psychotherapy?

Culturally diverse clients often bring up the following issues in sessions: cultural identity, identity crisis, the effects of multicultural and multilingual upbringing, coping with bi-racial identity, loss of mother tongue and mother tongue biases, belonging, language usage, racism, race & ethnicity, mixed-race upbringing, hybrid identity, isolation, confusion about identity, which cultural values to adhere to (host vs own culture)

My first session

YOUR FIRST SESSION WITH ME

Starting with therapy can be daunting, but taking steps to understand your situation, feelings, emotions, and behaviour is good.

Before you start with your first session, we will have had a chat by telephone to find out more about your reasons for therapy and whether I will be the right help for you. 

If we both agree to work together, we will then plan your first session to start your therapy. We will then arrange to see each other regularly, mostly weekly, at the same time and day of the week (there is flexibility). 

All sessions last 50 minutes and start promptly. Due to Covid, the sessions are online through Zoom (video call) or telephone, whatever you find comfortable.

Therapy is a space where you can take all your time to talk, think, feel and be without being judged and supported at the same time.
