About me

Perhaps you're feeling anxious, depressed or suffering from panic attacks. Or maybe  you're struggling with constant conflict and negativity in your marriage or relationship and long for a loving and deeper connection with your partner.

I understand that seeking help can be hard and sometimes the prospect of change can seem daunting or even impossible.  However, it is also the crucial first step that will ultimately help you to transform both your personal life and relationships.

I am a highly experienced psychotherapist, counsellor and relationship coach. I offer a safe, confidential environment where problematic beliefs, behaviours, feelings, relationship issues and any other areas of concern can be explored with a view to resolution and deep, lasting change.

I’d love to connect with you and to help and support you in any way I can.

Please get in touch, and we can arrange a complimentary Initial Consultation to discuss your needs and give you the opportunity to find out more about working with me.  If you prefer, you can book directly here:  https://farahhussain.com/schedule/

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed my core training as a Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapist at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham (UK). I qualified with a first class honours degree and am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.  After completing my psychotherapy degree, I pursued an additional one year certified coach training program in London.

On-going training, personal development and supervision form an integral part of my professional life, and contribute greatly to the quality of my work, and the service I deliver.

I have extensive experience of working with a broad range of issues in a variety of settings, including anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, sexual, emotional and physical abuse, low self-esteem, self-harm, personality disorders, divorce, bereavement, and relationship problems to name a few.

I am currently  in full-time private practice and have worked in counselling/psychotherapy roles with a number of organisations over the past decade.  My last role before embarking in full-time private practice was as the manager and clinical lead of a local charity that specialises in therapeutic support for survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

I have also held a local government contract for the provision of specialist domestic violence and sexual violence counselling services for women for a number of years.

I am passionate about the work I do. I love connecting with my clients and helping them to achieve what matters to them most, one powerful conversation at a time.

Sessions can take place in person, over the telephone, or online via Zoom.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
