Thank you for reading my profile. My aim as your counsellor is to provide you with a calm and safe space where you can explore, understand and decide what you wish to do about what you are finding difficult. I do not give you advice or tell you what to do; rather I facilitate you to find your own ways of coping and moving forward. I would describe myself as warm, approachable, non-judgmental and with a sense of humour. I offer clients a "tool box" and knowledge from various disciplines, e.g person centred, psychodynamic models, transactional analysis and behavioural work. Most important is that you feel comfortable talking with me.

I am highly qualified in several modalities of therapy including Transactional Analysis, CBT, Psychodynamic work and humanistic approaches.
As a psychotherapist, counsellor, supervisor and trainer, I am passionate about emancipation and freedom. My practice is characterised by offering you a space - online or face-to-face - where you can discover your identity and regain a sense of autonomy and connectedness. I seek to support my clients to move from a place of feeling perhaps lost and alienated to a position where they feel connected to themselves, to others and to the ground upon which they walk. As a client, you may be seeking to manage a significant and sudden change in your life. I would like to work shoulder-to-shoulder with you to address these difficulties.

Through collaborative discussion, we will work toward fresh understanding and new ways of coping.

I am a qualified psychotherapist. My practise offers a safe, supportive and confidential space for clients who work within the music and entertainment industries. Alongside my practise I work in the music industry so I can identify with problems that can arise from these areas which I've found to be both helpful and supportive to clients.

Psychodynamic short and longer term work has proven to be effective.
Are you experiencing relationship problems, inner conflicts or life stresses? It can help to find someone who is empathic and skilled who offers a safe space in which to share these feelings and dilemmas. Sometimes the issues may have been a pressure in life for months or years, and become part of your personality. It is a relief to discover that there is a solution to be found in therapy. I am especially interested in helping clients who have experienced troubled, sometimes abusive, childhoods and early loss of significant attachment figures. Often later life experience brings back earlier trauma and distress.

My therapeutic approach has been influenced by integrative, humanistic, cognitive behavioural, applied behaviour analysis, meditation, mindfulness-based, psychodynamic therapy, ISTPD etc.
I was born and raised in multicultural societies all my life. Living in several different countries on 3 different continents (United Arab Emirates, Canada, Pakistan, Wales and England) has given me unique knowledge about culturally adapting therapy. It has also taught me to understand and work with many different kinds of people. I believe in building a strong therapeutic relationship with the client to create a safe and comfortable space to address and potentially alleviate psychological trauma.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
