Psychotherapist in Training

My approach to therapy

I truly believe the very foundation of a therapeutic relationship is one that can offer a safe, non-judgemental, and open space for the individual to explore and process their thoughts, behaviours, and feelings. Every person is unique, and so my approach and style prioritise and values the richness and acceptance of everyone’s own experience and life journey.

I like to think that I have a flexible approach to my work, that promotes empathy, curiosity, and patience in our relationship. Being the person who gets to support my clients on their journey and see them gain a greater understanding of themselves is an absolute privilege.

Qualifications and experience

I am a trainee integrative psychotherapist at Metanoia Institute in West London, and work through an integrative model. This means I draw on techniques from different modalities, tailored to the specific needs of the individual. This includes attachment theory and humanistic approaches.

My career within the humanitarian sector has provided me with in-depth experience working with different communities around the world. I have a specialism within in the sector of child protection in emergencies, working alongside children and their families who have and continue to be affected by war and displacement. Areas that I have worked across include, individuals seeking asylum, forced migration and displacement, sexual gender-based violence, family separation and early- and forced- child marriage. I have experience working with a socio-ecological approach to protection, that focuses on the interplay between individual, relationship, community, and societal factors.

One of the main reasons I chose to train as a therapist is to help make mental health services more accessible to all communities. As such, I am particularly committed both in my approach and training to removing the barriers to accessing mental health services and working within an inclusive framework.  Ethics are at the heart of my practice, and I am committed to offering a safe, principled, and confidential experience.

I am a trainee member of the UK Council of Psychotherapy and working towards my full accreditation.

Current Work and Interest

I work across a broad spectrum of issues, but some specific  areas of interest include anxiety, depression, low mood, trauma, relationship / family difficulties and gender and sexual diversity.

Throughout my career within the humanitarian sector, I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults from various cultures and backgrounds. My current therapeutic work and training is with adults on an individual basis. Sessions are in-person.
