About Me in Depth
Experienced. Certified. Supportive.
What do I love the most of this career?
The relationship that you develop with another human being which is honest, respectful and maybe the best one that you and I have ever experienced.
What inspired me to start working for myself, was the fact that I realised that agencies that offer the jobs in counselling are not following the same ethos that I believe. For example, 1) I feel that there is too much pressure in meeting targets for some companies, instead of then thinking about the needs and well-being of the clients.
2) The number of sessions (which is normally six to eight) are not tailored for every person, some need six sessions, while others need more.
3) Another factor that gets forgotten is that agencies provide the next available counsellor, without letting the client have a choice to find out what therapist he/she feels comfortable to share with.
As I believe that we all are different and to get the benefit of the healing process, both parties need to feel comfortable.
What makes me different
I can speak four languages: Spanish, English, Hindi, Sindhi. Because of my cultural background (being raised with Indian values) in a western world, in this case, Spain. when I was old enough, I followed the tradition of getting married in an arranging method. I came to live in the UK with my husband (now very happily, divorced!) And I have been in the UK for the past 18 years.
I have the first-hand experience of breaking those rules that did not favour me as a person but by being a "Rebel", it allowed me to start living on my own terms.
I would like to say that I am down to earth and I know how difficult life can be sometimes. Having my own life experience,(not just the theory) has made me learn.
I had been a client myself in a therapy room and I found it really hard to overcome my own demons and clear the skeletons from the wardrobe. Trust me, it was really scary and I needed to be brave. So when you and I decide to work together I will be able to empathize with you, as a client not as someone above you, because I am human like you
