Born in Tehran, Iran and raised in Sweden from the age of 11 years. Since 1997 I have been living in England  with my husband, our 13 year old daughter Maya and our joyful puppy Cookie. I am fluent in Swedish, Farsi, English and Dari,

Since 2000, I have been working with Victims of Torture at the Refugee Support Centre, Refugee Therapy Centre and Mapesbury Clinic in London, UK. 

In addition to this I am at Docklands Outreach East London, supervising the qualified therapists’ work with young people, in collaboration with Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services. This involves liaising closely with and lecturing for the  British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

In December 2020 I volunteered my services to Frontline19, working with Doctors and Nurses in ITU and ICU.

My work as a published author has been recognised in the Zoroastrian Journal Chehrenameh,  International Psychotherapy Journal, The Psychotherapists, Transformations PCSR journal and Therapy Today. I am also a fictionalised memoir writer. My first book ‘Once Upon a Time in Tehran’ was released by Strategic Publishing in 2010 and raised recognition amongst our Zoroastrian community (Book signing at the Zoroastrian House, London) as well as having book signings at Harrods, London and a guest appearance on Manoto TV, followed by various of other book signings across the UK and in New York, USA. My second book ‘Once Upon a time in Uppsala’ is is due to be published later this year.
