About me and my therapy practice

“The most intense conflicts, if overcome, leave behind a sense of security and calm that is not easily disturbed". - Carl Jung

Life is often filled with unanticipated or unexpected events that may cause difficult and painful emotions. You may be feeling lost and overwhelmed or simply exhausted from feeling burdened and consequently isolated by such experiences and their accompanying thoughts.

Therapy creates a safe place for healing and transformation by providing an opportunity to work through and overcome your obstacles. As an integrative therapist, with a breadth of experience providing support to adolescents, individuals and couples, I can help you deeply explore and manage your challenges.

Practice description

Each individual’s experience with mental health is both nuanced and unique to them, which is why applying general labels as a way to describe your difficulties can feel reductive. As a relational integrative therapist, I integrate and tailor evidence-based psychological interventions, drawing knowledge from diverse schools of thought, to optimally create the most supportive approach to best suits your needs.

Some of my main specialist areas include anxiety, depression, relationship issues, trauma, phobias, cultural and identity-related concerns and personal development. I draw upon a mixture of Psychodynamic, Person-Centred, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Talking Therapy and other approaches to create a confidential, safe and accepting space that can support your individual needs as you explore your emotions.

I practice both in English and Persian for those looking to commence therapy in their native language.
