About me and my therapy practice

I am a warm and empathetic therapist  who can help you gain better understanding of your current situation  and offer you tools to manage and overcome emotional problems.

Being through adverse life experiences  resulted in me seeking therapy. It not only changed my life but also allowed me discover my calling which is to empower others and help them heal relationships with themselves and others so they can reach their full potential.

Whether you are looking for help with your Relationships, Self- Esteem, Career, Anxiety, Depression or simply feeling burnt out and stuck, get in touch and I can explain how we can collaboratively work and achieve your goals.

I have been a practising counsellor / life coach in Birmingham for over 6 years. 

I currently work online with clients based mainly in UK, Emirates and Poland.

Please visit my website and take a look at Google reviews.

I look forward to hear from you.


Practice description

In my sessions, I use Integrative approach that involves selecting the techniques from different therapeutic orientations best suited to a client’s particular problem. By tailoring the therapy to individual needs, I am able to produce the most significant and long lasting results.

* Person-centered therapy: A non-directive form of talk therapy that offers empathy and unconditional positive regard

* Cognitive Behavioural Therapy ( CBT ) Focuses on making connections between thoughts, behavior, and feelings. CBT assists clients in challenging and overcoming unhelpful behaviours as well as self limiting beliefs. CBT provides effective tools to treat depression, anxiety, OCD, phobias, or PTSD

* Transactional Analysis ( TA) , is a psychoanalytic theory and a form of therapy which focuses on enhancing relationships with self and others. TA helps explore individual’s personality; how it was shaped. It is extremely effective in changing unhealthy patterns that limit our potential.

* Gestalt therapy: Focuses on the "here and now" experience of the client. It promotes a non-judgemental self-awareness that enables clients to develop a unique perspective on life.

My first session

For any new clients I offer free 15 -30 min initial consultation ( over the phone) which provides an opportunity for us to get to know each other.

During the first appointment I will explain how I work and what you can expect from therapy.

I talk you through the contract : we discuss times we will be meeting, confidentiality and I will address any questions you may have.

Keep in mind that Counselling usually requires multiple visits, so don’t expect any instant solution to your problems the first day.

During the first session I may ask you :

- What brought you to therapy

- What are your symptoms

- How is your appetite, sleep, work- life balance

I will also ask some questions about your history, including your childhood, education, relationships (family, romantic, friends), your current living situation, and your career

I always encourage my clients to ask questions; some of these can include

* How can you assure my confidentiality?

* How many sessions will it take to resolve my issue and for me to feel better ?

* Could you explain what I can expect to happen in my sessions?

Together we will set goals for therapy, decide on a specific therapeutic approach and length of the treatment.
