Who am I?
I am warm, compassionate therapist. I am a bi-lingual, Muslim therapist. My education background is I have a BA Hons in Psychology and Counselling, and then I completed a Fda in Integrative Counselling. I am also working towards further education and research.
Due to my passion I have set up a charity, working towards helping individuals with mental health. My work is more to me than a job, it is about turning my passion into positive outcomes for my clients.
My Passion - " The things you are passionate about are not random they are your calling"
When human beings experience emotional difficulties or severe life stressors, it is not uncommon for their lies to unravel. Through this unraveling comes the goals and happiness you wish to achieve. My great passion has been trying to help people through traumatic/stressful experiences.
My Counselling practice aims to give you the opportunity to explore your problems, distresses or any difficult situations that you are experiencing in a confidential, non-judgmental, safe and supportive environment.

What is my approach?
I know that no single approach is right for everyone, and this is way I use an integrative approach according to you’re needs and requirements. I focus on the main core conditions of empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard and respect a huge part of my work.
