About Me


I am a Person-Centered Counsellor/Psychotherapist, Supervisor, Trainer, Groupworker and Equine Facilitated psychotherapist with extensive experience in working with clients, teaching and group facilitation.



I have a wide experience in working with a variety of issues including abuse, domestic violence, addiction(s), depression, PTSD, self-harm, trauma, child-related issues, cultural issues, eating disorders, general counselling, identity issues, loss and bereavement.



In my work, I also include creativity such as art, masks, puppets, sand tray, visualisations and movement. I am mixed heritage (Sri Lankan and English) and also speak basic Sinhala.



Besides working for the Practice I also facilitate and co-facilitate with my practice partner Personal Development Workshops, Equine Facilitated psychotherapy groups, CPD Workshops for therapists and counsellors.



My teaching and supervision have been based in a variety of settings including Adult Education colleges, private colleges, charities, organisations, staff teams and private practice. 



In my group facilitation work, I bring years of experience in dealing with conflicts and challenges.
