“We are always in a perpetual state of being created and creating ourselves.” – Daniel Siegel.
Shoma is a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor. The Psychodynamic approach allows her to offer a safe and confidential space to explore new perspectives on current or recurring issues you may be aware of experiencing in relationships (personal, professional, self) which have maybe left you feeling stuck or unsure of how to make meaningful changes, as you move through life. Sometimes we notice discomfort or pain in the body, which can be ways that suppressed emotions can show up in us. Shoma aims to build a secure, safe professional therapeutic relationship that will allow you to explore these aspects at your own pace, with a balance of compassion, empathy, collaboration and timely challenge, to help you develop meaningful strategies to care for and support yourself in future, whilst also offering you the option to explore and understand how external influences and relationships could have shaped your ways of being in the world.
Shoma welcomes clients from all backgrounds and offers a supportive, flexible and non-oppressive approach.

- Sleep problems
- Lack of motivation
- Lack of confidence
- Attachment trauma

- Parenting difficulties
