About Me

I am a UK Kent based integrative counsellor and holistic psychotherapist, I work in a culturally sensitive and collaborative way that embraces all cultures, ethnicities and religions. Coming from a mixed european cultural heritage, together with over 30 years of extensive work and life experience behind me, gives me the advantage to work with a huge scope of people both in my hometown of Kent (UK) or digitally from all corners of the world.
My work ethic is to always offer a non-judgmental and empathic space that ensures a bespoke programme unique to each client who can work at their own pace and style. I specialise in ‘Trauma and Abuse’ recovery but work with a whole range of issues serving both individual adults and adolescents aged 12+.

I also offer specialised coaching service for parents of teenagers and a unique Muslimah self-development programme for women of the Islamic faith. You can also book all your online sessions via my website from the comfort of your own home, anywhere in the world!
I invite you to learn more about me under “meet your therapist’ and visit my ‘services’ section including the general FAQ, bookings & fees or maybe click to try my FREE  25-minute consultation where you will have the chance to learn more about the counselling process.
I really hope to see you soon!
