About me

I am a compassionate and caring professional, offering counselling and psychotherapy on an individual, couples basis. I run my private practice, Roohaz Counselling and Psychotherapy in central London.

Therapeutic Technique
The approach I use in my work is called Transactional Analysis (TA), founded by the renowned psychiatrist, Eric Berne, whose assumptions were:

  • People are essentially born OK
  • Everyone has the capacity to think
  • People decide their own destiny and their decisions can be changed

TA offers a theory of the personality, a model of communication and a study of repetitive patterns. It can be short term usually through counselling, or longer term with psychotherapy.

In my work I also integrate aspects of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and psychodynamic approaches where appropriate.

Counselling offers you the opportunity to talk through your feelings and explore your options about problems you are currently experiencing. I work with you to support you to find solutions and make the right choices. Typically, counselling works over a shorter period of time such as 6 to 8 weekly sessions.

Psychotherapy is usually longer term and provides an in-depth exploration into deep seated issues from your past that have affected your life today. We work together to understand your sense of self and repeated patterns of feeling, thinking and behaviour. My aim is to help you to challenge self-limiting beliefs and behaviours, and move towards positive change to improve your life.

I welcome enquiries for any type of issue, for example: bereavement and loss; stress; anxiety; depression and low mood; lack of confidence; low self-esteem; relationships; work-related stress; phobias and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).

Each session is 50 minutes long. There is no limit to how many sessions you can have. After an initial assessment and depending on the presenting issue, we agree a therapeutic contract in which we may decide upon a short term, limited number of sessions, or longer term and open-ended work.

I also offer sessions over video conferencing using either Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts or FaceTime.
