I am a mixed race Asian/white counsellor in private practice. My approach is based in Gestalt Therapy and I work with adults over 18 on an individual basis.

 

For me, therapy has been profoundly life enhancing and has fuelled my desire to facilitate the experience of therapy for others. I’m grateful for the opportunity to connect and share part of your journey, either short or long term.

Who I work with

Some of the issues I work with but not limited to:

  • anxiety

  • depression 

  • loneliness

  • grief and loss

  • relationship issues

  • low self-esteem

  • shame

I have a particular interest in working with creatives and difficulties in the creative process, as well as working with issues of identity, intersectionality and the effects of racism.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and work to its ethical code. I’m committed to continued professional development in psychotherapy, alongside my passion for personal growth.

I have worked with a diverse range of adult clients from my East London base and online and I am a volunteer counsellor at a mental health charity in Hackney.

What is Gestalt therapy?

In practice, Gestalt practitioners work with clients to help them focus on self-awareness: on what is happening from one moment to the next, or as we often say, in the Here and Now. Increased awareness and understanding of the present, of one’s immediate thoughts, feelings, behaviour and of patterns of relating, can bring about powerful change and new perspectives.
