My name is Kadija Taha, I am an integrative counsellor, and also specialised in bereavement counselling. My experiences of counselling and psychotherapy has inspired me with a positive perception, and has enabled me to know who I am. Counselling has also helped me to feel supported with a freedom to express myself safely. Counselling can help to explore and probe in deeper, which can lead to self-discovery. It is also a method used to change old negative perceptions, thoughts and behaviours, to new and fresh ways of thinking and behaving, with a new perception of the world around us. Another great concept of counselling is, once we believe that change can occur, then we are on the right track.
As an integrative counsellor I use various approaches to work with my clients, including, the Humanistic Approach, Psychodynamic, CBT..... I work genuinely with my clients, I am non-judgement, and always use my empathic understanding, to be in my clients world. I love my task and its a pleasure working with different people. As a counsellor, I have always been lucky to interact quickly with my clients, which makes it easier for them to confide in me. I have had quite a few positive feedback from clients which makes me love my task even more.
My duties as a counsellor are: to develop suitable plans that suits clients, active listening and responding skills, establish trust and interact with clients, identifying problems and finding solutions, monitoring clients' response and looking for signs of improvement, as well as continuing professional developments by attending training and workshops.
My key skills and competence are: patience with a calm and mature attitude, having a person centred approach towards counselling, ability to instantly analyse problems and raise awareness, experience of working with diversity, bilingual (English and French).
However, I am willing to meet elderly and disabled clients in their homes, otherwise I work at my office in Holborn on Thursdays and at my other venue, Monday to Friday, 9am to 11 am.
