I believe that effective therapy draws on clients’ strengths and resilience, enabling them to move forward in life even when changes seem impossible and to maintain progress after therapy is completed. I have extensive experience of working with clients from a varied cultural and socio-economic backgrounds with a range of psychological and emotional difficulties. I regard myself as a culturally sensitive practitioner.
