By reading this, you have started your journey to recognising that this is the time for you to value yourself and that counselling is the right path to self-discovery.
Through counselling, you will build a therapeutic and confidential relationship; a relationship where you feel accepted, valued, safe and not judged. Together we explore your issues, re-build your self-confidence and self-worth, to enable you to take responsibility for your own choices and make positive changes within your life. Therefore, your therapy is tailored to your needs alone. I offer individual counselling on a open ended arrangement.
I am an Integrative Psychotherapist; this type of therapy allows the freedom to take elements from different therapeutic approaches according to the individual needs of the client. Sometimes people find it difficult or uncomfortable to put their feelings into words, make sense of what they are going through and need help & support from someone outside of their personal life.
My approach explores how past experiences may affect the individual’s current experiences which enables change for the future. It is often after a period of struggling with feelings, difficulties or memories related to these experiences that a person may arrive at the point of needing the support to understand what is happening. Further to this, I can provide therapy that is culturally sensitive and culturally inclusive if needed by the individual. I am able to offer the counselling in either English or Urdu, giving the individual the flexibility to choose the language they are most comfortable with in expressing themselves.
Should you decide to have counselling, the first step would be to arrange an appointment by telephone or by email. This initial meeting is very important to allow you to discuss your particular concerns and what you need from counselling. The first appointment will provide us both the opportunity to get a sense of whether we could work together - this is an important factor in establishing a therapeutic relationship.
My counselling experience includes working with difficulties around:
- Domestic abuse
- Low Mood
- Lack of self-esteem
- Low Confidence
- Anxiety and Stress
- Domestic Abuse: emotional, sexual, mental or physical.
- Bereavement or Loss
