About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative psychotherapist, with the ‘relationship’ at the core of my therapeutic approach. Whilst the relationship we have with our family, friends and work colleagues is important, the most crucial relationship we nurture is the one we have with ourselves. I believe that early childhood experiences can unconsciously shape the adult we become and how we, as individuals, relate to being a part of this world. We may have adopted coping strategies in our early years, that served us well then, but might not be helpful to us in the here and now.

My expertise extends to assisting parents with concerns about their attachment bonds with their children; my aim is to help nurture a sensitively attuned parent-child relationship. I am also interested in exploring issues related to generational oppression and the concept of intersubjectivity. As an Asian woman navigating an ever-evolving landscape, I understand the unique challenges we face. How can we construct a bridge that supports personal growth and independence, while preserving our cultural heritage?

Experience

My professional journey has encompassed various roles, including supporting vulnerable Asian women at the Sahil Project in Coventry, assisting individuals navigating complex bereavement at the Myton Hospice, as well as other mental health organisations.

In addition to my clinical work, I hold the position of Assistant Professor at the University of Warwick, where I am actively involved in teaching and mentoring students on both undergraduate and postgraduate counselling courses.

Qualifications and membership

PhD in Health Sciences – Mums4Mums: Evaluating Telephone-Based Peer-Support for Postnatal Depression

PG Diploma Infant Mental Health

Practice description

I have experience working with clients from diverse backgrounds and am proficient in providing therapeutic dialogues in my mother tongue, Punjabi, and can also extend my services to those who speak Hindi and Urdu.

My therapeutic approach is primarily conducted online, and I have seamlessly integrated this method into my practice. For individuals who may find it challenging to share their thoughts and feelings, the convenience of participating in therapy from their own confidential and secure environment can be a valuable asset. 

How I work

My approach to my work is rooted in offering you a safe and nurturing space to explore your true self – the person you aspire to become. It can be quite challenging to fully embrace your authentic self when external expectations and demands shape your identity. Many individuals may find themselves living their lives without a deep understanding of who they are, why they behave the way they do, or why they encounter difficulties in their relationships.

As a relational attachment-focused integrative psychotherapist, I draw upon the wealth of knowledge and experiences I have gathered over the years to connect with the real you. My ultimate goal is to create an environment where you can uncover unconscious patterns, fostering greater self-awareness and enabling you to live consciously and purposefully.


My first session

My approach to the first session acknowledges the challenges of seeking support, especially if it's a new experience for you. It can be daunting to find someone who can meet both your articulated needs and the unspoken ones.

I extend an invitation to you to schedule a complimentary, no-obligation 30-minute online appointment. This introductory session allows us to connect and see if my therapeutic approach aligns with your expectations and we can establish our working relationship.
