Growing up, mental-health wasn’t really spoken of. Coming from a South Asian background – talks around freedom of speech, self-care and self-awareness were even harder due to anything mental health related being seen as weak or as a taboo. Seeking emotional support through a therapist was a myth, maybe even unheard of. Looking back I would have really benefited in having a counsellor to help me explore my thoughts, speak openly without feeling a sense of judgement and listen to me.
Due to these reasons, I knew I had developed a meaningful passion for wanting to help others. I wanted to offer support, compassion, and a safe space for people because this is something I lacked when I needed it the most. My experiences and personal battles from a young age led me to train as a person-centred counsellor for young people and adults.
I am a human before a therapist and having had personal therapy myself, I know how scary and challenging it can be. I can understand and relate, hence the approach I take as a therapist.
If you think that I could be that person for you, drop me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the contact form and I will get back to you within 1-3 working days.
I am a person-centred counsellor. Person-centred counselling allows the client to assist the ability and belief that we all grow and can reach, fulfil, and meet our full potential.
I work in different ways, which is dependent on the clients needs. I am creative in my approach and provide a tailored service to each client – which is important to me because everyone works and develops differently to one another.
I offer a space which is non-judgemental, free, and comfortable to all clients because I believe counselling helps people with their own self-awareness and growth – which is why the importance around a trustworthy, client and counsellor therapeutic relationship is key to me.
