"Everyone can transform from the Ugly Duckling to the Swan they are meant to be"

Slogan & Core Belief

There are moments in everyone's life that everything looks ugly, sad and confusing. We start feeling tired all the time, people that used to be fun, are annoying now. Food has lost the sense of taste. The sensation of pleasure and happiness has vanished.

I would like to support you to try to find out the reason /root of the difficulty. We can work together using different tools that can be beneficial to achieve your goal and to gain a new insight. I can offer you: a safe place to express how are you feeling with no judgements and keeping the information that we share in confidential and professional manner.

What do I love the most of this career?

The relationship that you develop with another human being is honest, respectful and maybe the best one.

What makes me Unique

  • -I can speak four languages: Spanish, English, Hindi and Sindhi.

Because of my cultural background (being raised with Indian values) in a western world, in this case, Spain and following the tradition of getting married and coming to live in the UK for the past 18 years.

  • -You will be able to talk to someone in your own language
  • -I can understand the differences and cultural diversities
  • -I know how hard is to Break the conditioning rules of society
  • -I was a client myself in a therapy room and I had to overcome my personal demons and skeletons and it is really scary and bravery is needed
  • -I offer to counsel in the comfort of your home
  •  - Around your schedule Monday to Friday 9 am-8:30 pm
