About me and my therapy practice

I am a UKCP accredited & BACP Registered Psychotherapist. I also have a CfD (Counselling for Depression) accreditation. I have qualified as an Integrative Psychotherapist (MA) and specialised with an advanced diploma (ADEP) in Existential Psychotherapy from Regents University, London. I have further specialized in Trauma (Psychanalytic view) from Tavistock & Portman. I have appended and contrasted my understanding of Trauma (PTSD), Anxiety, Depression and Bereavement from an Existential, Cognitive and Psychoanalytic perspective. I have an integrative approach to therapy with affinities towards existential philosophies particularly hermeneutic phenomenology.

I have over 7 years of Counselling/Psychotherapy experience at London, UK and have experience at various mental health agencies (MIND) and NHS (IAPT + IPTT). At NHS, I have handled secondary care complex clients as well as done couples therapy. I am also a Leadership Coach and have have 20 years of corporate experience hence understand career, financial stressors, conflict, leadership and selling related aspects hence an expansive gamut is integrated with my therapy practice. I specialise in Anxiety Disorders, Depression, Bereavement and Trauma (including PTSD).

Our view of the world is a perspectival view hence my way of engaging with you will adopt a phenomenological modality of being meaning I will aim to understand your unique perspective and the way you perceive your experience as it unfolds to us in our sessions. As we journey upon this path, we will jointly uncap your construct of self, core beliefs, relatedness with the world, your thoughts, assumptions, conditionalities, your attachments, defences and coping, explore your boundaries of freedom, choices, possibilities, limitations, language interpretations, agency & your participation in life.

Practice description

I do therapy sessions at Kenton, Harrow as well as London Bridge area however till lockdown restrictions are eased, we will have our sessions on Zoom/Skype. 

My first session

You hitting upon insights and finding newer ways of being in the world, through the mode of self-discovery, would be one of the attainments from our work. We believe this is an important aspect of change in order for you to lift your mood, state and agency. Towards this cause, we will bring necessary processes, philosophical cues and psychological tools into our sessions. Being an Integrative therapist with a proclivity to Existential philosophies, allows me to draw structure, content and process from various therapeutic orientations. I am here to render to you a non-instructive, non-judgmental and supportive stance. Our relationship will be confidential, which is governed by ethical frameworks. Our initiation session will be free as it grants both of us the possibility of evaluating mutual compatibility and I can get a better grasp of your presenting issues.
