I am a highly qualified bilingual psychotherapist and I am able to offer therapy in both English and Farsi. My approach to therapy is integrative which means I am able to utilise different approaches such as Humanistic, Psychoanalytic and Cognitive Behavioural.

Approach to treatment
I am a specialist in Cognitive behavioural therapy. In addition to CBT I also provide Integrative therapy and Cross Cultural therapy. My approach to therapy is integrative which means I use an approach suited to each client. My role is to support the client through this process in a non- judgemental and non-prescriptive manner. I encourage clients to be autonomous and to discover their own strengths helping them to have the knowledge and internal resources to enable them to reach their full potential.
