My Approach and Philosophy

A humanistic and integrative therapist, one who is not constrained by theoretical purity, I work holistically, seeking to make meaning out of the complexities of my clients’ everyday existence. As simple as it sounds, I believe nobody is perfect and we all need help sometimes. We are born neither good nor bad but have the intrinsic capacity for both and to aspire to be the best we can be. There is capacity for growth and change in everyone, and I will work with you, the client, to facilitate movement towards growth and to reach your full potentials. I offer a warm, encouraging and nurturing relationship, that the client will experience as conducive, safe and secure.

The common factor in my approach to therapy is the relationship with the client. the connection is all-important, and counselling has the best chance of a positive outcome when the client experiences the relationship as secure, trustworthy, non-judgemental and healthy.

As well as working with various presenting issues such as abuse, trauma, bereavement, depression, anxiety, and others, I am particularly passionate about working with difference and diversity. As a person of colour, l use my lived experience to bring awareness to issues faced by people who are 'Othered' daily in our society.


People experience and interact with the world around them in many different ways, and there is no one right way of thinking and behaving. Hence, I do not view difference as a deficit. Let us work together to make sense of your own world just the way you experience it.
