About me

I was diagnosed with dyslexia in my late 30s’, which, through twists and turns, provided me with valuable insight into my learning styles and relational patterns and how I can best contribute to empowering people in their professional and private lives.

Growing up in a multicultural and neurodiverse family has sparked a deep interest in examining transgenerational and cultural themes through the lens of therapy. I was trained in relational Transactional Analysis (TA), a therapeutic modality that explores an individual’s personality and how our experiences, particularly those in childhood, have shaped our lives.

My professional endeavours extend to counselling students from a research university. I have expertise in supporting executives and others who have quite an isolated life at work or home, and I have extensive experience providing support to men.

Before my career in therapy, I taught in special needs schools across London, where I honed my skills in supporting diverse individuals.

Ways of Working

I use various methods, including solution-focused therapy, mindfulness, humour and psychoeducation, to help clients develop helpful coping strategies and understand their strengths and weaknesses. I regularly review and monitor the processes and progress to bring our work to its fullest potential.

As a TA practitioner, I trained in the relational approach. I work flexibly and creatively in a soulful and companionate way, emphasising a spirit of mutuality. The relationship between you as a client and me as a psychotherapist is at the heart of the work. 

Studying sports and education gave me valuable insights into various aspects of human behaviour, including motivation, teamwork, leadership, resilience, and coping mechanisms. The frequent criticism that neurodiverse people experience has a significantly negative impact on their well-being. Therefore, I invite my clients to reflect and celebrate even the smallest growth and success.
