Psychotherapist | Mindfulness Facilitator | Motivational Speaker

On my dedicated spiritual journey over the last two decades I have come to realise that my purpose and passion in life is to assist my fellow earthly citizen to becoming their best & true self. I ardently believe that each individual is the centre of the therapeutic healing journey & that recovery & change is possible for anyone who seeks it. My objective… to continue supporting anyone seeking it through HABITS… & now through 4 CORNERS OF THE EARTH. My aim…  to empower each one to become…

‘Master of their Mind’ and ‘Decider of their Destiny’.

As a BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) Registered Psychotherapist… specialising in dual-diagnosis… I support & treat those experiencing addiction, mental health, emotional and spiritual health issues. Identifying strongly with my ethnic heritage and having awareness of the difficulties experienced by those from the same or similar groups… HABITS has particular emphasis on serving those from the BAME community… though not exclusively…

 “For YHWH loved the world so much He gave His only-begotten Son that ANYONE exercising faith in Him may not perish but have Everlasting Life!” – JOHN 3:16

The habit-forming process… which is fundamental to all learning… is vital for existence. However, there is a default to this process… we learn healthy habits and unhealthy habits in exactly the same way. HABITS helps people to understand this necessary process – through various therapeutic & psychological approaches supported inextricably by spiritual faith – with the aim of replacing unhealthy habits… mild, moderate or severe… for healthy life-long ones.

HABITS deliver psychotherapy, mindfulness programmes, motivational workshops and training… with an innovative focus on enhancing mental health, spiritual and emotional well-being… through collaboration with health and social care professionals… community-based organisations… as well as to individuals and families.

We are all creatures of habits… the beautiful gift we have is choosing the habits to be creatures of.”

Playing my djembe is a passion of mine and it is one of my specialities that I use doing the work of YHWH. I play my djembe on the streets of cities and towns that I visit, which is also one of the methods I use for raising funds for this project. (it is not busking or street entertainment)

I play my djembe singing spiritual songs and preach, which encourages people of all walks of life. I trust by the love of YHWH, that I bring life to the cities and towns and to the people; raising up a good atmosphere with joy, love & smiles.

So besides spreading the love and putting smiles on the faces of those who want to smile, I am raising funds to be able to print the Holy Word of YHWH bible for free distribution on request. I will also reach my goal in creating a bible app for the Holy Word of YHWH free for use to all.

That is why your help and support is so important!
