Fahmida Khanum MSc, MBACP
I am a counsellor / psychotherapist who can facilitate helping you overcome emotional pain and unrest. I believe most people experience difficulties in their relationships with others as well as themselves, which is why a good therapeutic relationship is the foundation of the healing process. I do this by building and strengthening the therapeutic relationship between us, creating a safe, non-judgmental space for you to share your thoughts and feelings. The ultimate goal would be to let you explore your strategies in managing emotional conflicts, enabling you to move forward.
I concurrently hold various roles within the NHS encompassing clinical and quality improvement work.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold BSc (Hons) Applied Psychology and Computing, PGDip in Psychology and MSc in Therapeutic Counselling. I am a member of BACP. I have been practicing for 6 years- first through Newham Action Against Domestic Violence until it was decommissioned in 2015. In this organisation I primarily worked with victims of Domestic Violence, both men and women. I am also a psychotherapist at Sarah Agnes Foundation with focus on strengthening familial relationships. I have experience in helping clients with a variety of emotional conflicts with positive outcomes. I have worked with anxiety, depression, sexual abuse, family separation, loneliness, body dysmorphia, homelessness, suicidal ideation, phobias and psychosexual issues.
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.
