About me and my practice

Who am I and why choose me?
I was a client myself twice in my life and I know first-hand how difficult it can be to take that step. However, I also know that therapy can be life-changing because growth can only happen when we push our boundaries and step outside our comfort zone. My role is to be with you as you set sail on this journey. Feelings like sadness, guilt, shame, anger, and anxiety are all too familiar to me and many others because this is where our humanity lies. My role is to help you name those feelings and find ways to navigate them and cope with them. I offer counselling in English, French or Arabic.

My approach
As a person-centred therapist, I will try to deeply understand what youre going through. Truth is, I may never fully get there as your experience is unique. But I will make every effort to see the world as you see it. I will accept you as you are and help you find a way to embrace yourself and treat yourself as a worthy human who matters in every way.


I deal with a broad range of issues including but not limited to: anxiety, stress, depression, abuse, bullying, bereavement, relationship problems, work-related stress, chronic health conditions, suicidal thoughts, self-harm, LGBTQA+ counselling, trauma, discrimination, racism, loneliness, low self-image, low self-esteem.


- PGDip Counselling and Psychotherapy and currently completing an MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of Salford.
- I also hold a Master's degree in Public Health concentrated in Health Behaviour and Education which allowed me to have a fulfilling career in the humanitarian sector spanning 14 years.

Initial Consultation

I offer a free 30 minute introductory call. This can be a video call or a phone call. This will give you a sense of who I am, both as a person and as a counsellor and help you decide if you wish to work with me. You don't need to decide straight away. You can take time and think about it. I would love to be part of your journey if this is in your best interest.
