Reasons to get in touch
You're looking for an experienced counsellor?
You're tired of being strong for others?
You want to trust someone with your thoughts & fears?
You'd like to get your head around a big change?
You're fed up of people not really listening?
You're looking for one to one, confidential support without judgement?
You deserve to be heard and respected, even if your experiences have made you think and feel otherwise.
Don't let yourself be limited by those experiences.
Instead, let's work together to get your voice heard and give you an opportunity to understand how you connect with others as well as a better acceptance of yourself.
How I help
I offer you time and space to talk in confidence about the things that are affecting how you're feeling; the things that may also be the cause of stress, worry, anxiety or distress.
I won't judge.
Instead, I'll use my (integrative) counsellor training and experience (NHS, corporate, private practice and personal) to understand where you're at and what you're looking for. I adapt my way of working to make sure that your needs are being met.
Therapy sessions are arranged to fit around your lifestyle & requirements so can be:

We all experience anxiety at some time or other; it's our body’s way of keeping us safe from harm. But at times the anxious thoughts and feelings can get in the way of every day life, particularly if they co-exist alongside other issues such as depression.
The anxiety might be the result of a change in circumstance, a change in health or loss of income for example, or it might relate to confidence or self esteem issues e.g. do you feel anxious about what other's might think?
Either way, we can work together to understand your anxiety, identify your triggers and look at techniques and strategies as well as the negative thought patterns that often add "fuel to the anxiety fire".
Together, we can make the anxiety feel more manageable.
I am an Anxiety UK Approved Therapist providing therapeutic support to the charity’s members and partner beneficiaries. See my experience for more details.
We all experience loss at some time or the other. It can be the loss of a loved one through bereavement or because a relationship has ended but also through changes in family dynamics e.g. if a child leaves home.
Redundancy and retirement can also bring feelings of loss, as in many ways it feels like a way of life has ended.
Perhaps you're experiencing a loss of confidence, in yourself/others/your health?
Together, we can look at the feelings you have around your loss; understand why they are important; and why thinking about the future might feel difficult right now.
Stereotyping, Discrimination, Expectations & Labels
As a British-born Asian female counsellor, I'm very aware of how our lives and achievements can be limited by stereotypes, labelling and discrimination and I'm passionate about challenging stereotypical beliefs.
Stereotypes and labels can make us feel invisible. This impacts our self-esteem and confidence as well as relationships.
We can work together to challenge these limitations, understand your own measures of success and focus on how you would like your life to look and feel.
