About me

Sometimes you may be troubled, but find it difficult to think things through by yourself. Psychotherapy allows you the opportunity to talk openly and in confidence about whatever is on your mind to someone who is trained to listen in a way that helps you work through your current difficulties, which may have their source in the past. This type of conversation offers you the possibility of lasting change.

As an integrative therapist, working in both English and Farsi, my approach draws upon a range of therapeutic models to suit each client. Combining humanistic, psychodynamic and transpersonal psychotherapy, I work with issues including stress, relationship problems, anxiety and depression, bereavement, the effects of redundancy, issues around immigration and low self-esteem.

I work with individuals, couples and young people in a safe, comfortable and confidential environment. I aim to build a professional relationship of trust and authenticity through an unconditional and non-judgemental approach.

The therapy might be short or long-term, depending on individual needs. If you would like to discuss whether psychotherapy is appropriate for you, please feel free to make an appointment for an initial consultation. This gives both of us the opportunity to meet to discuss your issues and find out if we would like to meet further. I work face to face and also offer telephone counselling during the daytime and evenings.

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
