I see therapy as a space to understand ourselves better so we can free ourselves from patterns that no longer serve us, draw on courage to make challenging choices, and find peace in reality.
As an integrative therapist, I draw on a variety of therapeutic approaches. My focus is relational, attachment-informed and embodied.
This means I believe we can draw as much insight from how we interact, as from the content of what we say. My practice draws on childhood, inter-generational and wider cultural experiences to make sense of thoughts, feelings and sensations. I believe that working with our physicality and paying attention to our bodily sensations can enhance our understanding of ourselves.
While I don’t believe it’s possible to ever fully understand another’s experience, I hope to help you deepen your understanding of yourself and provide a caring and contained environment in which to do so.
Maybe you don’t know exactly why you’re here – that’s fine! If you’re looking for a therapist, that’s a starting point in itself.
Training, qualifications and experience
I am accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and completed my Diploma in Integrative Counselling at the Minster Centre, where I am also conducting a United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)-accredited MA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy.
As well as my private practice, I am a counsellor at Spiral Holistic Therapy Centre, a low-cost and long-term therapy service.
I have spent 15 years working with children and families experiencing socio-emotional challenges as well as with the practitioners who support them (including brief, solution-focused work).
You can find me on the BACP directory and I am a member of the Black, African and Asian Therapy Network (BAATN), whose goal is to address the inequality of access to appropriate psychological services for Black, African, South Asian and Caribbean people.
Code of ethics
I follow the BACP ethical framework.
