About me and my therapy practice

Hi Thank you for looking at my profile. 

I am an intercultural second generational Muslim Psychotherapist and have experience of working with Muslim and South Asian clients.

Being Muslim or South Asian descent doesn’t make us all the same but there is often a shared experience of what is expected of us from our families, religion and communities.

People from all cultures experience anxiety, depression or worries, but how these are perceived can vary from culture to culture and the type of help needed can differ.

Cross-cultural psychotherapy is particularly sensitive to the importance of race, ethnicity and religion. Being able to connect on a cultural level enable a deeper level of communication and understanding. It can allow a more effective therapeutic experience.
