I am a fully accredited integrative psychotherapist working from consulting rooms in London Bridge.  I believe in working in collaboration with my clients to discover what brings them to therapy and how best to approach the situations they are facing, be it patterns of relating, current life stresses, anxiety or specific life events.    

Working integratively enables me to adapt my approach depending on the needs of the client.  I use the principles of the core conditions, make use of CBT approaches and work from a relational and attachment focused perspective.

  • I have always been interested in themes of connection and isolation.  Being an immigrant, themes around belonging, difference and community pervade my work.  

  • believe an approach that starts with building rapport, that is proactive, collaborative, contained and boundaried is important for working successfully with clients.

  • In addition I believe it is essential to work with culturally sensitivity, taking into account a person’s family and cultural background, as well as considering the impacts of structural inequalities in society.  

  • I am a member of the Black and Asian Therapist Network
