I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist qualified since 1992. I have worked clinically in the NHS and the private sector as well as providing consulting services to the family courts and medico-legal firms. I have strong international academic links and considerable experience in cross cultural assessment and therapy. In addition to my clinical expertise, I actively present research papers at international forums and I am a honorary research fellow with the University of Bradford .
THERAPY AND ASSESSMENT
Clinically, I have substantial experience assessing and treating adults with a wide range of mental health problems and offer psychological assessment and intervention for both mild and complex difficulties some of which include depression, anxiety, eating disorders post-traumatic stress (PTSD), relationship difficulties, women's issues, and confidence issues. I have a special interest in therapy for trauma, adjustment disorders and postnatal depression.
In addition to mental health settings, I have worked widely with adults in medical settings. This has involved the assessment, and therapy for people with long-term physical health conditions. Among some of the conditions that I have worked with are chronic pain, cancer, coronary heart disease, diabetes, renal failure, obesity, respiratory disorders and end of life issues.
The key approach I use is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, as it is evidenced to be the most effective model for many psychological difficulties. However, I have also developed a mindfulness to my therapeutic work using a holistic and integrative approach informed by the specific needs of each client. I try to tailor my therapy according to the needs of each individual person and therefore often work integratively. I also has cross cultural expertise and I am bilingual speaking fluent Urdu, Punjabi and some Hindi.
I am also a Matrix Energetics Practitioner trained by the world renowned Dr Richard Bartlett, the developer of Matrix Energetics. Matrix Energetics is a system of healing and transformation which works on the principles of quantum physics and leads to instant physical observable changes. Matrix Energetics starts with a gentle light touch and the power of focused intent and often leads to a new and joy-filled state that may affect life changes. It can be used to heal, to transform and to create new possibilities by transforming beliefs concerning healing, disease and the structure of reality. Matrix energetics works well both face to face and long distance.
