I am a BACP accredited counsellor and family systems practitioner. I am trained in psychosynthesis , a holistic approach that acknowledges both the personal and transpersonal. In includes our mind, feelings and respects the wisdom in our bodies. It chooses not to instruct but acknowledges client's latent potential.
I focus on specific issue that you bring. Often clarifying the issue in itself can bring relief. Following on, the questions that presents is what would be a “good” outcome for you. Holding this outcome as a reference and context for our work we explore how you can find ways to support yourself and move forward.
My own mixed race background informs my practice. I have a non-judgemental attitude towards people, their culture and its nuances, making me realise that there is no set formula to achieve a better life. What is important is that you draw on your socio-cultural context to find solutions that fit you and improve upon your life. It is challenging to integrate values of our culture of origin and those we presently live, in particular the stresses these create within families. I have worked with a number of mixed race and second generation clients from Indian, Pakistan and Bangladeshi back grounds.
Having experienced the military and worked in faced paced finance sector I have a keen awareness to high degree of stress people are exposed to in their work environments. These insights have helped me support clients around stress, anxiety and panic attacks using coaching and mindfulness techniques.
I have extensive experience in short term solution focused work having worked for a number of charities including The Terrence Higgins Trust, The Place 2 Be, St Christopher’s Hospice and most recently The NAZ project London as a supervisor.
Most recently I qualified as a relational supervisor and offers supervision to professionals from rage of fields including therapists.
My work is based on a sound ethical framework and is regularly supervised to maintain the highest standards.
