How I Work

In a non-judgemental and confidential environment there is space for you to feel free to bring what you choose. This might help you to talk about difficult experiences in your life or it can help you go deeper within yourself and find meaning. I respect and value the uniqueness of each person's experience and identity, my presence is mostly facilitative and supportive. The approach I use is very relational and flexible. Therapy does not have to be all about dealing with the negatives, with the help of reliable research studies, positive psychology and empowerment techniques there are ways for you to start seeing the good side of things and your own strengths. As an integrative therapist I draw from a wide range of theoretical backgrounds: Person-Centred Therapy, Object Relations Theory, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Body Psychotherapy. I have additional training in Trauma-Focused Therapy (e.g. Narrative Exposure Therapy) and Mindfulness.

I have had the chance to work therapeutically with people from a number of countries (e.g. Nigeria, Albania, Iraq, Egypt, Syria, Britain, Ethiopia, Sudan and other) and various ethnic minority groups (e.g. Tamil). For years, I worked together with homeless clients, Refugees and Asylum seekers in the UK and abroad. I speak English, German and Arabic. But, if needed we can invite an interpreter.
