Hi, and thank you for viewing my profile. My name is Ayisha, I am a qualified Counsellor and an individual member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). Having engaged in my own personal therapy, as part of counselling process, I can appreciate just how scary and challenging taking the first steps into therapy can be. It's not easy but I'll be here to walk through the whole journey with you. I provide a warm, empathic and non-judgemental approach to my therapeutic work and offer confidential, safe environment for clients to explore and gain an understanding of any issues affecting their wellbeing. I offer face to face counselling, telephone and online counselling.
I am a person-centred counsellor who use elements of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) to look at ways of coping strategies and Psycho-Education which allows you to understand your thoughts and feelings. My aim is to ensure that we work together and identify the therapeutic approach that best suits your therapeutic needs and wellbeing.
I work with male and female adults from 18 and above. I have a substantial experience working with a variety of issues, which includes Depression, Anxiety, Past Issues, Childhood Issues, Relationship issues, Domestic Violence, Homeless, PSTD, OCD, Work related Issues, Bereavement &Loss, Bullying, Trauma, Self-Esteem and Anger Issues.
I understand how important it is to find the right therapist to support you through your journey/difficulties. I am happy to have a brief phone/email conversation to answer any questions you may have about counselling and how I work, feel free to get in touch and hopefully we'll take it from there.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
