Meet Simi Valecha Johnson

Integrative Arts Psychotherapist HCPC

About me

My professional background includes experience in both private and statutory mental health settings. Yet, integrative arts therapy is my specialty and working with globally mobile people is my passion. 

That’s because I’m a cross-culture person, too. Just as important to me as my birthplace in Africa are the strong ties I have to my Indian roots. This, coupled with the time I’ve spent living in growing up in Accra and London, gives me first-hand experience with the dynamics of life on the move and in-between two or more worlds. 

I understand the challenges and issues that other people face when home is more than one place. 

As a result, my approach to therapy is person-centred and integrative. Through the power of the arts, imagination, and creativity, I help clients find effective, lasting resolutions for the issues they’re facing. And I’m available no matter where you are in the world.
