Originally from an engineering background, I decided to come and live and work in the UK. In the time I have been here, almost twenty five years, I have become more involved in a very multicultural environment. I also discovered that my main passion in life was supporting people who were struggling in their daily life and to this end I began my career in psychotherapy in 2009, when I started training as a counsellor. Since then, I have been involved with various charities in Coventry and Rugby supporting women experiencing domestic violence (Coventry Haven) and people affected by sexual abuse or rape (RoSA). Previously I volunteered for Age UK supporting people with dementia. I also worked for three years working with The Friends programme in Coventry supporting refugees and EU immigrant families with young children.
I am presently working part-time in education offering counselling to children, supporting them with their difficulties. I also run my own practice from a therapy centre in Coventry.
I firmly believe in the need for a therapist to follow their own therapy to enable them to understand the struggle that clients often face and come and deal with. My personal journey helped me to understand the challenges of life.
My journey continues and each day brings new opportunities to move ever more comfortably forward.
