About me and my therapy practice

Counselling provides an opportunity to share problems with someone who can listen and help to make connections between past experiences and current behaviours. It provides a safe, non-judgemental, genuine and an objective space, within which one can explore their problems, thoughts, challenges, fears, and solutions. All this while, taking steps to change their lives for the better. I would like to offer you that space and help you find your unique solutions.

I work as an Integrative Psychotherapist/Counsellor and adapt my  approach to your personal situation and concerns, drawing from various counselling theories. I constantly work to enhance my practice through my continued experience of working with various Mental health charities, private practice, and life in general.
