About me and my therapy practice

I am a Nepalese-American counsellor and I use the psychodynamic approach to therapy, but in humanistic way. This means I work to help make sense of your world and any unconscious behaviours that may be shaping your life in a way that you’re finding unpleasant. This can show up in the form of explosive anger, panic attacks, or even non-responsive behaviour. Looking closely at this can sometimes feel difficult, which is why I approach this with you way that won’t seem as terrifying. 

I have MSc Psychology and MA Psychodynamic Counselling degrees from the University of Essex.

I provide a place to confidentially express things that wouldn’t be acceptable outside the four walls of my practise, to think aloud about feelings and thoughts buried deep inside, and a space to try to make sense of the swirling confusion that sometimes brings a person into the counselling room.

My background as a Southeast Asian counsellor from America contributes to my unique approach; I can understand the feeling of "otherness" which is the feeling of not quite belonging but not being different enough. I can open space to speak about prejudice, classism, sexuality, or abuse with both young people and adults alike who are facing naming such difficult periods in their life. 

The pandemic challenged the way many people thought about their lives and changed the way we lived in a manner that we still are having a tough time understanding. I provide space to think about everything and anything in a safe place.  

When I am not in private practise at the Stockwell Centre, I work as a pre-bereavement counsellor in the hospice and community at St Helena Hospice.

My first session

Our first session will be getting to know you which will include speaking about what has brought you into counselling, what your expectations are from counselling for yourself and what expectations you might have of me.
