About me

I am an Accredited Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

My journey in counselling began in 2011, through my experience I have worked in a variety of settings from voluntary placements, GP surgeries and charity organisations.

I am frequently asked what counselling is particularly when a new client is about to embark on an unknown journey for the first time.  I like to say this journey is all about you, giving yourself the time to get to know you better.  Counselling is certainly a journey of the self and how we relate to others.  I like to think the stigma around emotional support services has reduced from some years ago.  We often reflect on our physical pain and rush to the GP for support but what about our mental and emotional pain?  I don’t see why this should be any different as both can be quite disabling in there own way.

The Purpose in my Counselling work is to create a therapeutic working alliance which provides an emphatic, open, honest and non-judgmental environment. The combination of these elements I hope will enable the client to explore their feelings and emotions in a safe and confidential environment.

The Goals and Objectives of the Counselling I provide is to gain exploration through a talking therapy by increasing your self-awareness. The aim is to facilitate you in helping you to help yourself in a difficult situation, as sometimes life can throw certain obstacles in our path. This, I hope will support you to reach your greatest potential by fulfilling your aspiration in becoming a better example of yourself.

I apply an integrative theoretical approach in my counselling work, encompassing an amalgamation of the theoretical background and skills of the main counselling modalities; Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural therapy.

In addition, I can provide an Islamic Counselling approach; the theoretical approaches are applied to suit the best needs of the client.

I have experience in working in General Practice, Charity Organisation's within an Islamic, Asian and Intercultural setting. Therefore, I have the experience, knowledge and background of culturally sensitive issues which may often arise in the therapeutic setting.

I only hope if you feel you need the support for your mental health and emotional difficulties, please ensure you listen to your heart and follow the right support for you.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

As stated previously I can apply an Islamic approach in Counselling derived from the Qur'an and Sunnah - exploring one's individual journey of existence and their relationship with The Creator.  Islamic Counselling encompasses not only the physical, psychological and social aspect but also the often disregard to the spiritual element of an individual.
