Welcome Everybody

EK Therapy aims to reduce barriers of access for individuals and communities that have experienced institutional and systemic issues within care systems, leading to the needs of people not fully being met within many mainstream services.

With an ethos embedded in Sikh Values of Oneness, honesty, non-judgement and universal truth, I strive to create a service that honours the perspectives and individualistic nature of those I work with.

EK Therapy has no criteria but you may find my experience useful if you're from the Global Majority, practice faith, religion or spirituality, you've found services hard to reach or you're a trauma survivor. You may simply be curious as to what my approach to healing can offer you.​
Clinical Experience

I work integrative in practice and pull upon theories from:
Creative Arts Psychotherapy and Drama Therapy
Somatic and embodied healing
Psychodynamic and Attachment-Based Models
Dyadic therapies including DDP
Trauma-informed practice
The Polyvagal Theory
Intersectionality, cross-cultural and Ethnocentric healing

My previous therapeutic roles include:

  • Tier's 2-4 Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services offering Individual, Group and Dyadic Drama Therapy and also CBT and DBT-informed models. This includes a secure hospital, Core CAMHS and substantial experience in specialist Looked After Children's Team (care-experienced children and young people).

  • A wide spectrum of issues including self-harm and suicidal ideation, disordered eating, sexualised behaviours, learning needs, Neurodiversity (ADHD and ASC), trauma and PTSD, and Emerging Personality Disorders. Additional to CAMHS, I've worked in a Youth Offending Service and a therapeutic school.

  • Adult Inpatient Services offering individual and group Drama Therapy for adults with a co-morbidity of Mental Health needs (e.g. Psychosis and Schizophrenia), Learning Disabilities and Neurodiversity.
