About me and my therapy practice
You might find yourself seeking therapy for a number of reasons. Perhaps ‘things just aren’t making sense anymore’ or maybe things you used to do before to make you feel better aren’t as effective, there could be some changes in your life or possibly you want to make changes.
Regardless of our pasts or where we find ourselves now - we all have the potential to change, develop and have personal growth and it’s my innate belief that we ourselves know what is best for us, sometimes finding our inner voice isn’t that simple though, especially if we feel it’s lost or seemingly far beyond reach.
It can be hard to open up and speak to someone about what’s going on, but whatever your reason for making this first step and seeking therapy, with me as your Counsellor I can offer you a safe space free of judgement in which we can explore what issues arise for you.
Listening is the foundation of my counselling approach and with me, your lived experiencing and autonomy will be respected and welcomed in the therapeutic relationship we will build.
I offer talking therapy from a Humanistic perspective and also sandplay therapy which is a passion of mine (and it’s this passion that led me to begin undertaking my certification to become a Sandplay Therapist). Using the sand and figures within the sand tray is a powerful therapeutic approach to express not only understanding of self, but the world, emotions and life events - anything can show up within the sand tray for you and we can explore this together within a safe, non-judgemental space of deep caring.
I work with adults and offer both short and long-term counselling, providing a safe place of compassion and understanding with the aim to facilitate one’s personal growth through enabling change, allowing acceptance and honoring your own being. Listening is the foundation of my person-centred counselling approach.
When working together, you are at the centre of this process and I am beside you, assisting in helping you develop the skills necessary to not only manage what arises within the therapeutic space together but for overall well-being in your life.
I have experience of working with the LGBTQIA+ community and those who struggle with their gender identity and/or sexuality. I have also worked with Black and Minority Ethnic clients, particularly around the topic of Cultural identity and Cultural/Societal expectations for women within the South Asian communities.
My first session
I offer a free 20 minute video call so we can see if working together would be right for you. This provides an opportunity for you to ask any questions about how I practice or how we may work together, and this time can also be used to clarify any concerns or queries you may have in regards to pursuing counselling with me. There is no obligation to continue working with me following on from this call if you decide that the service is not for you.
Following on from the introductory call, our first session will allow for discussion around what has made you reach out for therapy and if we will be working together short-term or long-term as well as discussing any goals you may be aiming for within our sessions together.
