Faisal Mahmood UKCP Registered Psychotherapist and BACP Accredited
I am an experienced UKCP registered individual and group psychotherapist and BACP Registered Accredited Counsellor. I offer time limited and long term psychotherapy and counselling to individuals and couples. I also offer clinical supervision.
Alongside my psychotherapy and counselling practice, I work as a senior lecturer in counselling at Newman University in Birmingham, heading up the Foundation Degree in Integrative Counselling (BACP Accredited) and Introductory Certificate in Counselling courses.
I have over 20 years of clinical experience working with clients from a diverse range of backgrounds and with a wide variety of issues. I have also worked in multiple professional settings such GP surgeries, hospitals, voluntary sector and private practice. My core psychotherapy training was in Gestalt therapy. I practice an integrative approach drawing on aspects from the Gestalt, psychodynamic, CBT and motivational interviewing.
Some of the key areas I work with are:
- relationship problems
- cultural issues
- trauma, etc.
I have extensive experience of working with professionals like GPs, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, CPNs, Solicitors, Insurance Companies, Social Services, Primary Care Trusts and Local Government Offices.
I am a registered member of UKCP and an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy; and I subscribe to their Code of Ethics and Practice. I am also fluent in Urdu, Hindi and Punjabi languages.
Working with Groups:
I also work with groups, often co-facilitating with my colleague, Emma Flax. Groups are usually based in either Birmingham, Sheffield or London. Past groups have included Personal Development weekends, 10 week Personal Development groups, and 'Introduction to Gestalt' workshops aimed at practicing counsellors trained in other modalities.
