I will not rescue you, for you are not powerless
I will not fix you, for you are not broken
I will not heal you, for I see you in your Wholeness
I will walk with you through the darkness, as you remember your light -Sheree Bliss Tilsley
As we embark on a journey
These are interesting times. Loneliness, anxiety, fear and confusion are woven into our daily lives. My role is to journey alongside you as you approach and explore these emotions. We embark on this inquiry within a safe, supportive and confidential space. Through a joint exploration we see how you relate to your experiences while bringing awareness to your inner world.
If you feel these emotions present and would like a safe space to express, explore or release them, schedule a session with me.
How I work
Once we’ve made contact via email or by phone, we will set up an initial meeting where you can find out more about the work and decide if you want to take things further.
We will then schedule a weekly session where you will have an allotted hour at the same time every week. This provides for continuity for you to process whatever you have decided to work on. We would review our therapy relationship regularly to see how the therapy is going for you.
Sessions are currently being offered in-person in London (Hackney) or online.
The sessions are 55 minutes long and cost £70.

A few areas of focus
I grew up in the Sudan and have a deep appreciation for the people and the land. My origins are from the Middle East. I understand the intricacies related to being Arab. This includes having an understanding of how religion, family and society affects and informs who we are. With this understanding, I offer therapy to women and men who come from North Africa and the Middle East.
I also work with expats who live and work in North Africa and the Middle East.
I prefer to hold sessions in English with Arabic as a support.
Who I am
I am trained in Core Process Psychotherapy. The uniqueness in this form of therapy is that it offers unconditional kindness, nonjudgemental presence, and calmness in the face of difficulty. It is a space to share and reflect on emotions without fear of judgement or pressure to act. The goal of my work is to hold a deeply grounded and honest space. Within this space we will work through the emotions, memories, fears held in your being, so that you can reconnect to a sense of spaciousness and presence.
As an Arab women, I am drawn to working with those who wish to work through shame, blame, guilt, fear, repression with the hope of reconnecting to our core and authenticity.
