Amarah Hussain. BACP Registered Counsellor/Psychotherapist
Want to feel like your normal self again? Sometimes a listening ear and understanding is what you need. I am here to offer you my time, respect and acceptance.
I use an integrative approach - tailoring the therapy to my client's needs, and not the client to one specific approach.
I am fully qualified and experienced in both short-term and long-term face-to-face therapy.
I create a good therapeutic relationship with each client, normalising individuality in a comfortable space. I work in a completely confidential, non-judgemental, fair and equal manner.
I also offer telephone and online counselling (via Skype) to those who may feel uncomfortable with the idea of face to face therapy.
The foundation of my approach is humanistic, with the purpose of increasing the client's feelings of self-worth, reducing the level of incongruence between their ideal and actual self.
I also integrate a more solution-focussed approach into sessions with clients who feel they would like to focus on making positive changes, which ultimately starts from within.
I apply three basic principles in every session with my clients:
- Congruence - genuineness
- Unconditional positive regard - accepting the client as a whole
- Empathy - understanding the client from their frame of reference
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist, and a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
I abide by the code of ethics provided by the BACP.
I have experience working at Mosaic ll, which is an organisation that provides all types of therapeutic support to survivors, and families of survivors, of sexual abuse.
I also have experience at an organisation where I specifically saw black and ethnic minority clients suffering with both long-term and short-term struggles.
Within these particular areas, I have had the opportunity to see clients of all ethnic backgrounds, races, beliefs, sexualities, genders, ages, and life experiences.
This lead me to work with individuals dealing with:
Anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, PTSD, relationship issues, sexual abuse, physical abuse, psychosis, chronic pain, low self-esteem/confidence, loneliness, anger issues, illness, bereavement, OCD, addictions, eating disorders, panic attacks, self-harm, and suicidal thoughts.
