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.
