Shame is defined as a feeling of embarrassment, humiliation or a negative evaluation of the self. At such moments we feel exposed, small and powerless. Sometimes, shame is used in childhood to punish wrongdoings, which can emerge in adulthood and relationships because of childhood programming.

Maybe, shame affects your ability to have a healthy relationship, or the underlying belief is that you're unworthy of being in a loving relationship with a healthy other. Possibly, shame has a role to play in your impulsive actions, like drinking alcohol, using drugs and having multiple sexual partners, confirming the feelings that you already believe about yourself.

As your listener, I will support you through those painful and uncomfortable emotions and empower you to have a better relationship with yourself and others.

My Professional Background

Like many people, I have had varied jobs and roles over the years but they all had one thing in common, helping others. In 2010 I decided to go on a journey of self-discovery on a counselling course in the centre of Manchester, where my journey of person centred therapy began.

After working overseas for some time, I moved to Leeds and graduated as a Person-Centred Therapist. I have been blessed to be a part of a fantastic organisation that offers generic counselling in which I have experience and knowledge in many different issues, as well as my private work and ongoing training.

 I have also been trained in Couples Counselling where I empower couples to have a deeper understanding of what's troubling their relationships and to have better communication. I also became an individual member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (B.A.C.P) where I work within professional standards and ethical guidelines.

If you want any further information or have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you so much for reading about services and my journey I hope to hear from you soon.
