About me and my therapy practice

I am a mental health counsellor and psychotherapist with over ten years of experience in the USA, UAE and UK. 

I strongly believe in a client’s ability to heal and the power of the therapeutic alliance. I believe that clients can heal from life’s traumas and struggles in a safe and warm therapeutic environment. 

I use an integrative approach rooted in Humanistic therapy that focuses on creating a safe and non-judgmental environment for clients through which they can foster positive change and increase self-awareness. I also incorporate techniques of trauma-focused counselling, mindfulness, and CBT.

My approach is collaborative and focuses on providing a safe and non-judgmental space for you to begin your healing journey.

I provide individual support, family therapy, psycho-education, group counselling, and help clients to develop healthier self-management through supportive interventions.

I have extensive experience working with adults dealing with depression, adjustment, loss/grief, existential issues, identity issues, anxiety, and family-related issues. I also have extensive experience working with adults living with chronic illness. 

I believe that each client has an inner strength that is brought out through the counselling process and that each individual has the potential to improve their mental health and achieve a healthier and more fulfilled life. 

My first session

I provide a free 15 minute consultation that can allow you to ask questions and/or see if you are comfortable. 

If you decide to continue our sessions will run for 60 minutes. The length of therapy always varies; however all decisions and treatment plans will be discussed with you as my approach is collaborative in nature.
