Consultant Psychologist at Amaha from Nov 2021 to present

Why did you choose to become a therapist?

I have always been an avid reader. Each book that I read gave me new insight into the thoughts, emotions, and interactions between people. This set the stage for a life-long interest in psychology and mental health. I chose to become a therapist because I firmly believe that mental health is at the center of everything we do. Every human being deserves to live a happy healthy life, and looking after our mental health is an integral aspect to achieving this.

What would you like to tell a client who comes to you for therapy?

I’d like to tell my clients that all emotions are valid. My therapy sessions are a safe, non-judgemental space for us to collaboratively explore any concerns and experiences- both positive and negative. Reaching out to ask for help can be a difficult decision, but it is a process that we will navigate together, and is the first step towards creating a happier, healthier change.

What does a first session with you look like?

The first session is a chance for us to get to know each other. I will listen empathetically, and try to gain an understanding of your concerns and the unique factors that make you who you are. We will work together to outline some goals for therapy, and discuss a style of working that best helps you make the most of our sessions.

What has been an important learning of being a therapist?

One of the most important learnings for me as a therapist is that some change is better than no change. Not everything has to be at 100% all the time, we can start at 1% and then work our way forwards.
