Asna Ahmed, Counselling Psychologist
I am a counselling psychologist registered with the HCPC UK. I have over 10 years experience in the field of addiction, trauma, stress, anxiety, depression and relationship issues. My experience ranges from working at both inpatient and outpatient NHS settings, community centres, charities and private organisations.
My practice the therapy cup is an exclusive therapy café, where each therapeutic session is designed specifically to fit the unique needs of my clients. The therapy cup intends to enhance the journey of self-discovery and growth by placing the client at the centre of this journey. My underlying approach is client centred which along with the core conditions includes being creative,flexible and adaptable. In the last few years I have enhanced my ability to work with issues such as compassion fatigue and 'feeling stuck in therapy'.
I offer a free telephone consultation so that my clients can decide if they perceive me as a therapist that would work with their expectations, so please contact me to arrange one.
