I have over 15 years experience of working as a counsellor. I offer individual and couple counselling. I am an Accredited Member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). My integrative training enables me to work with a wide range of clients and difficulties. I have over 15 years experience of working with NHS referrals(GP surgeries), PCT (Mind Matters),asylum seekers, LGBT clients (Yorkshire Mesmac), rape and sexual abuse issues(Star Project). I also work with several Employee Assistance programs who provide counselling for employees, including work-related difficulties, stress management and PTSD. I speak Farsi fluently as well as English.
There are times in our lives that in spite of all we know we feel stuck and unable to see the way out. I see my role as a counsellor is to walk with you holding a torch till you find the missing pieces or acquire useful new ones to put your life back together the way you choose to. Therefore i see our relationship as being vital to make this journey possible.
I work both short and long term depending on your issues and preference.We can discuss this in the initial session.
Please feel free to ring or email me to discuss your needs.
