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 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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
