About me and my therapy practice

Due to Covid-19 I currently offer only online or telephone therapy. Hope to commence with face-to-face therapy again soon. Sorry for any inconvenience. 

How I work:

I understand its not easy to choose a therapist and I therefore give you the option to call me for free for 30 minutes and without any obligations to find out whether I could help you and whether we could work together. We can also use Zoom for a virtual meeting through video conferencing to experience a 'live' session with me.

My practice is comforting, safe and confidential. Sessions will be all about you where I will help you find clarity, understanding, acceptance, peace of mind and ways to move forward to a more healthy living. 

Especially in short term or brief therapy (up to 6-8 sessions) I will also use my skills as a Wellbeing Life Coach where together we will find solutions and ways to move forward from where you are now to where you would like to be. Combining both skills in the sessions can work quite well for some clients depending on their needs. 

I also offer long-term psychotherapy where its essence is about root causes and feelings, the exploration of self, the beliefs one hold and how for example childhood experiences (past) can impact one's present life. Often people are committed for a much longer time for such type of therapy where exploring root causes and traumatic experiences become central.

Practice description

Normally I would offer face to face therapy in Central London and Brighton but due to Covid-19 I currently only offer online (via Zoom or Skype) or telephone therapy. Hope that's OK with you?

Regardless how the therapy is delivered you will always be in a safe and confidential place to talk freely with me and all your personal details will be stored securely.

My first session

Once you have decided to work with me, after your initial free 30 minutes chat or virtual meeting, we will then plan our first session. 

The initial talk will already give me some clues about the type of therapy and help that would suit you best but this will become more clear after the first sessions.

About me and my therapy practice

MY TRAINING AND BIO

I am a trained and experienced Psychotherapist and hold a BSc. degree in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy. I also hold a Masters' degree in Intercultural Communication and experienced working as an Intercultural Psychotherapist. I have been practising for 8 years now.

I was born in Suriname (South America) and immigrated as a young teenager to the Netherlands with my family and very familiar with a multicultural and multilingual upbringing. At home we maintained our Indian culture and language (to some degree) and also immersed fully within the Dutch culture and its values. Since the last two decades the UK has been my home. 

INTERCULTURAL PSYCHOTHERAPY 

In general, many form of psychotherapy or counselling can help you work through difficulties or distress. As a niche market within therapy, intercultural therapy is particularly sensitive to the importance of race, culture, beliefs, values, attitudes, religion and language and therefore especially beneficial amongst culturally diverse individuals. 

Intercultural therapy further takes into account external realities such as racism, sexism, refugee status, poverty and physical health and abilities.

It also recognises the differences and similarities of various aspects of culture between the client and therapist. Being able to connect with your therapist on a cultural level can enable a deeper level of communication and a more effective therapeutic experience, according to scholars such as J. Kareem.
