I come from a multicultural country. I am Russian and was born and lived many years in a Muslim country, Azerbaijan. Having moved to the UK 17 years ago I know what it is like to feel like an outsider. My practice is open to diversity, is warmly welcoming people from different backgrounds, religions, sexualities, gender and personal life attitudes.
I am a qualified Counsellor, Psychologist and Hypnotherapist, I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) which means you will be working in a safe environment with a qualified therapist. I have been a BACP member since I graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University. I use an integrative approach to work with my clients which means I incorporate different theories and techniques to suit my client's individual needs. I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I hold a recent advanced DBS check which allows me to work with vulnerable people.
As well as working in private practice I work in Bradford Bereavement Support.
