About Me

I am a fully qualified Integrative therapist based in Reading and London. I have worked as a counsellor at Riverside Counselling Service, and currently volunteer at No5 Young People’s Counselling Service alongside my private practice.

You may have noticed my unusual name. It is pronounced “Da-sha”. Although I am British, I was born abroad, giving me some insight into the experience of being seen as an ‘other’. Partly because of this, I have always been drawn to outsiders, and to embracing diversity in all its forms.

Typical issues I have worked with include:

  • Abuse
  • Addictions
  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Grief
  • Relationship problems
  • Self-Esteem
  • Self-Harm
  • Stress
  • Sex and sexuality

For more information on my style of therapy, please see “The Way I Work“, or do get in touch.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists), and adhere to their ethical and best practice guidelines, such as attending regular continuing professional development training and supervision.
