About me

Hi, my name is Farzana and I am a person centred counsellor. This means I aim to focus my time and attention on you and what you want to talk about.

I am approachable, very easy to talk to, warm and non judgemental. I am friendly and empathic and here to support you.

My aim is to help you to become the best version of yourself and reach your ultimate life goals.

I have a BSc degree in Therapeutic Counselling and experience of working in various counselling organisations dealing with clients experiencing a range of issues.

We can work together and untangle and make sense of any emotions and feelings that are causing you stress and discomfort.

Life can be an emotional roller coaster sometimes and we can be full of uncertainty and confusion but when we invest time and give priority to ourselves, things can start to become a bit more clearer. We can explore what is going on in your life currently and how to achieve a sense of acceptance and peace and then try to aim for growth and change.

I believe that there is always a reason for our troubles to occur and that there is always a calm after the storm. In fact, life seems to get a bit better than it was originally. So we can possibly learn to look for rainbows when it is raining and find ways to stay positive and have gratitude.

Let's work out ways for you to be on the path that feels right for you and let it lead you to a more fulfilling and happier life.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
