Nila Yasmin - Lighthouse Affordable Counselling
01142 540503 / 07759 817983
My approach is holistic in that it includes every aspect of your being (body, feelings, mind, sexuality, spirit). Each of us encounters obstacles and dilemmas in life that cause emotional and psychological turbulence but we all have the potential to open to the wholeness at the core of our being and to live life fully. That potential is what I am passionate about and in particular, what gets in the way of it for you, in your unique life.
You might be experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship issues, compulsive behaviour or physical symptoms in your body such as illness. You might be in a personal crisis or feeling stuck, empty or without meaning in your life. Or you might have trauma or other issues from your childhood. I am experienced at working with all of these issues as well as many others and I will listen to you with empathy and compassion. Alongside this, I will respond to you with clarity, honesty and creativity.
I will help you to bring a deeper awareness to what is troubling you and I will support you to look inwards to find your own answers to the issues you are facing. This can open up space and freedom around the emotional disturbance you are experiencing and help you to live a more fulfilling life (in a way that feels right to you).
Everything can be included in the work we do together and nothing is taboo.
I am a member of BACP and I work to their professional, ethical guidelines and I am in regular supervision.
Sessions are weekly and last for 60 minutes. I offer both short term and long term counselling.

Seeking help can often feel extremely difficult and in particular, making the initial contact with me might take a lot of courage, I know that it can be hard to make that first move. Please do feel free to get in touch with me for an informal chat so we can get a sense of how we might work together. There's no obligation to continue.
