Fathiya Farah, MSc, BSc Integrative Counsellor, BACP Registered
I am an integrative counsellor and my approach allows me to draw from different modalities such as Person Centred, Psychodynamic and Existentialism. This enables me to tailor therapeutic work around the client's individual needs. Most importantly I value the therapeutic relationship as central to building trust and helping clients to reach their goals. I offer a calm, safe, warm and confidential space where clients can explore their feelings and experiences within a supportive professional relationship.
I am able to offer short and long-term therapy sessions depending on the client's emotional needs. As a counsellor, I have worked with young people and adults, I have experience working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse (CSA) as well as variety of mental health/emotional difficulties such as:
* Anxiety (social & general)
* Trauma/ Complex trauma
* Relationship difficulties
* Low self-esteem
* Low self-worth
* Toxic shame
I am aware of the difficulty in making the decision to seek counselling and how overwhelming the process of finding the right counsellor can be. It can be a lonely journey when you are feeling overwhelmed, Counselling provides clients with the opportunity of having someone to explore and help to make sense of their emotions and thoughts.
The initial consultation is for 1 hour and this provides the client with the opportunity to ask any questions and for me to get a sense of your needs. Any future sessions are for 50 minutes.
