"Becoming "Awake" involves seeing our confusion more clearly". Rumi
I am passionate about the field of therapy . My passion and enthusiasm, I feel comes from my own personal experiences and witnessing the transformative power of this work. I completed my BSc in psychology at London South Bank University (BPS accredited) and then spent several years in Asia learning and practicing different methods and therapeutic approaches orientated in Eastern philosophy. These experiences were growth promoting and I feel inform my practice in a positive way as I view each individual holistically.
I have an MSc in counselling psychology (BACP accredited) and am committed to my ongoing personal and professional development. I am a registered member of the BACP, adhere to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy's Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and attend regular supervision sessions. I have experience working with trauma, addiction and other complex issues and have experience working in both 12 step residential addiction recovery centres and in the community addiction agencies. I have experience working in different countries and am thus culturally sensitive and aware. I am creative, empathetic and non-judgmental. I respect the individuality and subsequent needs of each of my client’s.
I truly care for each of my client's and I feel passionately that when provided with a nurturing and facilitative environment, individuals can begin to uncover their own wisdom, courage and unique potential.
