I am registered BACP (Accredited) counsellor/psychotherapist. I hold a Masters of Science in Psychology from University of East London, alongside a post-graduate Diploma in Counselling from the University of West London. My formal training is in person-centred and existential theories. These theories are based on the client being the expert of their life, that is you have the wisdom & knowledge of what is best for you as an individual. When you gain this self-awareness it allows you to cope and gain acceptance with the issues and difficulties that you are experiencing.
I have gained a lot of training in other modalities Mindfulness, CBT, Transpersonal, Psychodynamic, & Psychoanalytic, making me a more integrative therapist to see what fits best in the therapeutic space. I also use creative methods such as art, poetry, story telling, metaphors to help you explore to gain more insight into your feelings and behaviours.
I am a qualified Accredited Mediator/ADR (Alternate Dispute Resolution) from Regents College,registered with Civil Mediation Council.
I am committed to my Continuing Professional Development in counselling. I abide by the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) of which I am an accredited member.
I have volunteered in a few organisations as a counsellor/psychotherapist: Bereft (bereavement counselling), Entrust (High School counselling), Farsophone (Bi-lingual counselling), and BAWA (Barnet Asian Women's Association). I have been an associate therapist for MWS (Multi-Wellbeing Services).
I am currently serving on the board of BAWA as a chairperson.
