My private counselling practice is based in Clapham, South-west London, at Clapham Common Clinic (a short walk “Clapham North” and “Clapham Common” tube stations and reachable via several London bus routes).

Over the past 15 years I have accumulated a significant amount of counselling experience, working with a wide range of therapeutic issues including:

  • cultural conflicts,
  • depression,

  • anxiety,
