My clinical experience has taught me how similar us humans are in so many ways. At the same time, I have come to appreciate how the interplay between a person’s cultural/social background and the strategies they may have developed to cope with adversity, form part of that individual’s unique experiences and needs. I pay great attention to ensuring that I use a treatment approach informed by my training and clinical expertise and tailored to the specific needs and goals of my individual clients. My passion lies with building a strong therapeutic alliance with my clients, creating a confidential and safe environment for us to explore, identify, and work together on one’s concerns. I believe that a collaborative, supportive therapeutic relationship lies at the heart of the therapeutic process and research studies have consistently demonstrated that it is the strongest predictor of therapeutic change. I strongly believe that no matter what difficulties each one of us might be going through, it is possible to work on healing and growing whilst developing helpful/workable strategies to cope with what life throws at us and hence achieve a greater sense of well-being.
I am trained in several psychological approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Brief Solution-Focused Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, Existential-Phenomenological Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I have vast experience in working with an array of psychological difficulties ranging from common mental health problems, such as anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem, to more severe difficulties, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), psychosis, trauma, and bipolar disorder. I work with adults and offer one-to-one as well as couples therapy (face-to-face and online).
