There isn’t anything more important than the relationship you have with yourself.
In my practice, I let you lead me to what hurts and to what matters the most.
I aim to listen closely to provide a safe space to open up and explore your issues in depth.
Being a psychotherapist brings great meaning and purpose to my life. With a decade of post–qualification experience in India and Scotland, I take a trauma-informed, integrative approach based on Person–Centred values, while also incorporating Psychodynamic, Jungian theory and Eastern spirituality to meet your individual needs. I am also committed to a feminist and queer affirmative practice.
My clinical specialisations involve working with trauma, abuse, gender, sexuality, dissociation and psychosis.
I have special interests in Inner Child work, Parts work, Healing from Childhood Abuse and Neglect, Complex PTSD, Healing from Sexual Trauma, Co-dependancy and Narcissistic Injury, Spiritual Emergency and Transpersonal Crises, Relational Trauma, Embodiment and Body Image Issues.
I am interested in the growth, changes, and healing that takes place through the process of psychotherapy and so I remain involved in qualitative research within the field of psychotherapy, where I explore lived experiences through creative methodologies.
I have been in clinical practice since 2010, while working in drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres, LGBTQI support centres, women’s refuge homes, and various community counselling and psychotherapy services. I have also taught in Counselling and Psychotherapy departments at University post-graduate level.
