About me

Searching for and seeing a counsellor can be a daunting experience for some people, but doing so can be seen as a major step in making moves to becoming more contented with life.

I am an experienced, qualiified counsellor and psychotherapist. I provide a safe environment with a non-judgemental, empathic and compassionate service for clients experiencing psychological issues that are painful, hoping to work through them and get to a stage where they feel content with their lives.

My approach to counselling is primarily Person-Centred although I am able to incorporate Solution Focused Brief Therapy techniques into my practice. I have also some training in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and can apply techniques from this method of therapy when required.


Mr. P.H.- Thank you Naveed for helping me to see the good in myself"

Mr. J.C. - “It helped airing and talking about the issues which brought me to seek help from Naveed. I felt that in our sessions he was most valuable and I feel much better for it. I seemed to have reached a comfortable plateau. I thank you for your kind attention."

Miss. N.B. - "Counselling helped me see clearly. Naveed is a very good and lovely counsellor. I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your support and help & being so nice. Best wishes, N.B :)"

Mr. S.G. - "Useful in that I have uncovered things about myself that I did not know. I went to counselling because I was angry and Naveed helped a lot with that."
