About me

My interest in therapy and coaching and diverse approaches to psychological mental health and wellbeing grew out of my childhood background and from my ‘own journey through life’. I grew up in a large extended French black Caribbean family with a meaningful slower pace of life, a sense connectedness and belonging. Adjusting to a new life in England had its own challenges and my experiences and time in therapy as a client has resulted in me having immeasurable compassion and warmth towards those who choose to sit with me in comfort and safety.

This journey showed me that there never seems to be enough time and space for individuals to talk and to be heard. Listening is a great skill; it involves complete focus on the person who is talking; paying detailed attention to what is being said and not said; listening with feeling and empathy towards the other person’s life story without being judgmental; continuously trying to put oneself in the other’s shoes. These skills and attributes add up to a very rewarding experience for me and each client. This and my passionate interest in psychological health and wellbeing, and education is what drive me to treat each individual I meet as a new and unique experience to be treasured.

I find that there is not a 'one size fits all' model of therapy, so I use an integrative approach of both modern and traditional processes tailored to your needs.
