By using the integrative model; this includes a Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy among others. This gives her the freedom and flexibility to work in a way that best suits the person as an individual. “By working together in a safe, non-judgemental and secure environment we can together examine what is challenging you. I explore with you your strengths and challenges in life. “
Alongside her private practice, both in London and Gloucestershire, She also works for the Refugees in Gloucestershire, with people experiences complex trauma, Panic disorders, General Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). She also has experience working with Domestic Violence.
In addition, she works with clients with learning difficulties. Learning difficulties affect the way a person learns new things throughout their life, having specific problems processing certain information and it can also affect memory, ability to focus and organisation skills. Unlike a learning disability, a learning difficulty does not affect general intelligence, but it may be experienced alongside other conditions, for example, dyslexia, dyspraxia, Autism ADD or ADHD.
A child or adult with a learning difficulty may require additional time, strategy, instruction or an opposite approach in learning. All this can be overcome, but obviously adding extra challenges to day-to-day life.
As a trained psychotherapist I can help in the development of coping strategies and increase confidence and also help the individual and their families with better support and understanding
Because of my religious and cultural background, I come equipped with knowledge and experience of working with the multicultural and diverse backgrounds that exist. I am to offer counselling in English, Urdu and Punjabi.
