I am an integrative therapist offering long and short term counselling in North London. My approach is strength and empowerment based and it is informed by different schools of thought, including psychodynamic, person-centred and transpersonal.
My aim is always to find what works best for each individual and tailor my support around your needs according to my training and experience and work with inner resources and personal resilience towards building healthy coping strategies.
My therapeutic style is empathic, relational, interactional, warm and non-judgemental. I use creative techniques in therapy including mindfulness, sub-personality work, internal family systems, creative visualisations, and body awareness.
Currently, within my private practice, I work with individuals from diverse backgrounds with a wide range of emotional, personal and relational difficulties.
Having come to this profession, following many years of professional experience in London's leading domestic/sexual abuse charity, I am trauma informed. I have worked many years as a frontline support worker and a manager for support organisations. Therefore I bring my understanding of the long lasting impacts of the trauma and the wide variety of adverse childhood experiences on our lives. Alongside with my private practice, I am currently managing the Therapeutic services in an organisation providing therapy for survivors of abuse.
Training for Organisations
I also deliver self-care and staff welfare trainings for helping professionals who work with trauma survivors so that they identify the symptoms and the impact of the vicarious/secondary trauma, burn out and compassion fatigue and build strategies to manage these in order to maintain their well-being.
As a qualified member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I work to the BACP code of ethics and good practice.
