Welcome Everybody

The purpose of EK Therapy is to reduce barriers of access for communities that may have felt like organisations and the care system have not understood their needs.

Our ethos is embedded in Sikh Values and Beliefs, particularly around Oneness, honesty, non-judgement and universal truth.

There is no criteria for who can access this service, but you may find it particularly helpful if you practice a faith or have a spiritual system, are from an ethnically diverse background, are a survivor of trauma or simply hold curiosity as to what my approach to healing can offer you.​
