I work with clients who come from diverse cultural backgrounds across all ages (above 14 years old) through their experience of life's challenges and difficulties. I am passionate about drawing clients' strengths and resilience in a non-judgemental and empathetic manner and providing them with a holistic approach to mental health.

My areas of interest are anxiety, depression and trauma. Having worked within the primary and secondary school setting, I work with parents who are seeking to support their children through developmental, psychological or social difficulties. I help children to work through their issues using creative and engaging ways and empower them with practical skills/strategies. I also work with adults who are experiencing stress related to academic, career or relationship problems. I utilise a range of evidence-based therapeutic approaches including Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

I see clients who have:

  • Mood disorders
  • Anxiety disorders including school refusal
  • Stress & adjustment disorders
  • Grief & loss
  • Trauma
  • Low self-esteem
  • Social skills difficulties
  • Relationship/family difficulties
  • Self-harming behaviours
  • Postnatal depression/anxiety and adjustment to parenthood
  • Anger issues
  • Workplace difficulties
