”I AM NOT DEFINED BY MY SCARS BUT BY THE INCREDIBLE ABILITY TO HEAL."

Welcome

SPECIALTIES

As of October 2021, I am constantly reviewing the guidelines regarding Covid - 19 and  while able to would like to offer hybrid appointments that include face to face and include online platforms.

I will continue to offer counselling whilst I am fit and healthy if that changes I will let you know. I acknowledge this is a difficult time for many - all of us are affected by the current climate, and I am keenly aware of the challenges many are facing.

 

Our feelings can at times feel unbearable or overwhelming; in therapy, having a dedicated safe space will enable you to make sense of them.

Anger is a boundary that guards us. Fear is telling us to go slowly and carefully. Sadness helps us complete things and recognise that life is a profound farewell.

My practice is influenced and can include ancestral indigenous practices, Gestalt concepts and creative experiments.

I am a member of BAATN (Black, African and Asian Network) and follow their core values, ideology and mission statement which can be found here
