Chinar Abdulaziz Registered Member MBACP (Accred)
My desire is to help to empower you to see you have options and choices to have a more fulfilling life by organising and facilitating creative workshops with art materials.
At the workshop, you can have the opportunity to get in touch with your creative side and express any concerns you may have in a safe and confidential group setting.
The benefits of taking part in the workshop is that you can increase your self-awareness, find clarity and gain new insights.
As a Registered Counsellor and Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and Workshop Facilitator, I attend on-going training and supervision for professional and personal growth.
In addition, I am a podcaster and have a podcast called 'Flowers Within Book' which is about some of my struggles in life and how my intuition helped me to overcome them. I also write Flowers Within™Meditations and Daily Inspiration from Flowers Within™ and share it on my podcast which is on SoundCloud in the hope that it may inspire you and others.
My intention in the coming year (2019-20) is to write a book that will include my story, Flowers Within™Meditations and Inspiration. My book will also consist of photographs that I have taken while walking in nature and the names of guests that have contributed to my podcast. If you would like to contribute to my podcast by sharing some of your story and/or what attracted you to the work you do, please contact Chinar.
Training, qualifications & experience
After graduating with a diploma in Counselling in 2004, I decided to set up my private practice. At the same time, as I loved the creative arts elements of my course, I decided to go on to study Person-Centred Art Therapy Skills and qualified with a certificate and later a diploma. Over the years, I have worked in various settings including a bereavement service, hospice, mental health charity, primary school and young people's counselling centre. I took a short break from my private practice to study for my BACP accreditation and worked part-time in a charity. In 2012, I resumed my private practice and also became an affiliate counsellor working on an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) and later joined a Private Health Care Provider as part of their team of counsellors. I then went on to study for a Professional Certificate in Sex Addiction taught by Paula Hall in the Midlands. In November 2018, I completed the 'Foundation for Infant Loss Training Accredited Provider Training Course' which was set up by Chantal Lockey.
I undertake training days and courses as part of my on-going training. This has included group facilitation training in the past. I have been running workshops before training to be a counsellor. At the time, the focus was more on arts 'n' crafts and learning a new craft skill. Since being in the counselling field, I have continued to organise and facilitate creative workshops, however, the focus is more on self-development and wellbeing. Since January 2019 my main focus has been organising creative workshops with art materials and broadcasting the Flowers Within Book podcast. In June 2019, I started to write my book called 'Flowers Within'.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I am giving a talk in Northolt, suburbs of West London on Friday 20th September 2019 on the topic of 'Using your intuition to overcome trauma'. This is not a substitute for any treatment you are currently having but merely a support system. For more information and to book your place, please contact Chinar.
My next creative workshop with art materials for personal development is called 'Flowers Within Creative Workshop' and is on Sunday 3rd November 2019 from 1 to 4 pm in London NW1. This is a workshop dedicated to personal development and you will have the opportunity to express yourself using art materials in a confidential group setting.
