I am a registered UKCP psychotherapist & supervisor, and work within its ethical framework. I’m also a member of the BACP & am on the register of proficiency.
I hold an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy from Re.Vision gained in 2008 after a 3-year training, building on a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from The Minster Centre gained in 2005 after a 3-year training. Both training organisations are members of the UKCP – United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy – & BACP – British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
My further training includes ‘The Essentials of Sexual Minority Therapy’ from Pink Therapy, which is an accredited training organisation with The National Council of Psychotherapists.
I was recognised as an Adolescent Psychotherapist by the UKCP in 2015, based on my work & experience with young people aged 11 upwards over more than a decade.
I am a UKCP accredited supervisor & hold a Diploma in Supervision from Re.Vision gained in 2015, building on a Certificate in Supervision gained in 2010.
My life experience has been about living within and between different cultures, different worlds, that don’t always meet. I welcome diversity of every kind and appreciate both the richness and the challenges it brings.
I have been working with individuals in crisis since 1995 and facilitating therapeutic groups since 2002. I have had a private practice in West Norwood since 2005.
As well as being a practitioner, I managed a school counselling service for over a decade. It became an integral part of the school community, used by students, staff & parents. My work experience includes many years in education and training, initially as a teacher. I speak both English and Arabic, and can work with you in either language.
