Nisa Shah MBACP
What are you searching for? I believe real joy and meaning in life comes from understanding ourselves as we are, not in desperately trying to change. You cannot change what you don’t understand. But awareness and understanding bring change naturally, spontaneously.
I believe times of struggle and crisis can often also present real opportunities for growth. I provide a safe, supportive, confidential and warm environment in which my clients explore their issues and find their own ways and insights into their lives.
My Counselling Approach:
I am an integrative counsellor; my therapeutic work involves a combination of Person-centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive, Analytic, and Gestalt therapy. My key emphasis is on empathy, genuineness, warmth and acceptance. As a BACP member I strongly follow their code of conduct.
I work with a unique combination of eastern and western approaches - I place equal emphasis on mind and body health and explore healthy lifestyle options with a view to reaching a happy and healthy life. I treat everyone as a unique being who needs a unique blend of approaches to help them. I believe a strong therapeutic relationship helps people to find their own resources and inner strengths.
I also provide an NICE (NHS) approved Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) programme to treat Mild to moderate depression, anxiety, Panic attacks, OCD. I believe CBT can be much more effective when combined with talking therapy.
I provide counselling for individuals, Couples and children.
