I’m a psychotherapist with a specialization in Sex and Relationship Therapy and have completed a post-graduate training with Middlesex University. I’m also a registered member of the College of Sex and Relationship Therapy and currently enrolled in a Master’s-level training in Couple Therapy, accredited by the Middlesex University and the National Counselling Society.
My work as a therapist started nearly two decades ago, after I completed a training in Humanistic Integrative Counselling at the CPPD (BACP accredited), followed by a Diploma and Advanced Diploma from the same training school. While I was establishing my private practice in Karachi, I also had the opportunity to be trained at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ).
My career includes working with nonprofit organizations and welfare institutions such as Karwane-e-Hayat, an institution in Pakistan that serves to treat individuals belonging to low-income backgrounds and suffering from severe mental illnesses. Here, I was a coordinator for a three-year project that included training staff members under the Illness Management and Recovery programme, a rehabilitation programme to help patients suffering from chronic psychiatric illnesses.
My supervision philosophy is intuitive, creative, and focused on the development of the supervisee, while making sure that the client is safe. I have been supervising for 12 years and focus on the education of the supervisee from a humanistic integrative perspective of psychotherapy. Together, the supervisor and supervisee develop a therapy framework for the client in line with their needs.
