Amina Ispahani - Counsellor & Psychotherapist, MA, MBACP (Reg.)
2 Harley Street
I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist based in Richmond and Harley Street.
Some people come to counselling to deal with particular issues, such as depression or anxiety. Others may come to deal with the emotional impact of events from their past, or recent life changes that have left them feeling unsettled.
Counselling and therapy can help you to understand your emotions and experiences more clearly, and enable you to learn to cope with them better. It can help you explore how you relate to yourself, to others and to the wider world.
Therapy is not about advice or a quick fix, but about working together to unpick some of your difficulties. We will work collaboratively to understand themes that arise and significant areas on which to focus.
I provide short and long term counselling to adults using an integrated approach. This means I combine a variety of theories and techniques. These include person-centred theory, psychodynamic theory and CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy).
My special areas of interest include:
- low mood
I hold a Master's in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Roehampton. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a member of the BACP Private Practice Division. I have worked in a variety of settings including the NHS, bereavement and counselling services.
How does it work?
I will provide you with the space to explore your issues in a safe, comfortable and non-judgmental environment. We will have an initial assessment session to see if we would like to continue working together.
I see clients face-to-face in two different locations in Richmond and Harley Street.
Sessions are once weekly for 50 minutes.
How long does it take?
I offer both short and long term counselling. If we decide to work together I usually ask clients to commit to a minimum of 4 sessions.
How do I get started?
