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, I offer you a space to express yourself both creatively and verbally in a safe and confidential group setting.
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 create and broadcast a podcast called 'Flowers Within Book' which is about some of my struggles in life and how my intuition helped me to overcome them. This has inspired me to write and share Flowers Within™Meditations and Daily Inspiration from Flowers Within™ on SoundCloud in the hope that it may inspire you and others.
My intention this year (2019) 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, please email me.
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 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.
