About me and how I work
Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor
Clients I work with:
Counselling is for everyone and any age. I have worked with clients from young-adults of 18 to older adults up to 77-year-old. I work with people of any age, race and religion and I look forward to working with people from BAME communities (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) who may feel stigmatised and are looking for a counsellor who will understand and empathise with them from their cultural or spiritual background.
I work in an integrative way to provide you the therapy that will meet your individual need in a safe, accepting, and non-judgemental environment. Integrative Counselling means I studied different theoretical approaches which covered various counselling approaches like Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Humanistic approaches and theories. My study of these theories has led me to understand more about human suffering and how to help.
In addition to my training, I have experience of life and I understand life’s difficulties and challenges you may be going through right now. I value and accept you as a person without judgement and will create a nurturing space for you to explore the difficult and stressful issues in your life.
I have worked with people of various age-group with diverse issues. I have experience of working with individuals who are mentally challenged and suffering with various forms of mental health issues and disorders. I also work with Suffolkmind providing much needed counselling to the public.
Psychiatric prescribed drugs and antidepressants withdrawal effects
I understand the concern and worry when deciding to go on antidepressant and the worrying symptoms and side effects when your start them and when coming off them. If you are considering going on antidepressants, or considering coming off psychiatric prescribed drugs and antidepressants, or suffering withdrawal effects of psychiatric drugs and antidepressant. I can support you to explore and decide what is appropriate for you with the help of your GP and understand the withdrawal symptoms you are going through.
