I offer individual person-centred counselling for adults on both a short-term or long-term basis. I work collaboratively with my clients, providing a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to talk things through and start to make sense of their situation and reach their own solutions.
I have experience working with a range of issues which include depression, sexual abuse, bereavement, relationship issues, self-identity and self-esteem.
I have a deep understanding of cultural issues affecting British Asians and Muslims as well as around the Islamic faith, and am able to provide a safe and confidential space to explore this.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I also recently completed a MA in Political Philosophy from Royal Holloway University where I explored the philsophy of grief in my dissertation.
I have several years experience with various agencies within Buckinghamshire and Berkshire, which include Rape Crisis and Number 22 Counselling in Maidenhead. I currently support adults and children with bereavement in Child Bereavement UK and Cruse Bereavement Care.
I am an individual member of 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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My fees are £40 for a 50 minute session, payable by cash or bank transfer. Some concessions may be available on request.
I work from a private, safe and accessible space in Cressex, High Wycombe just off Junction 4 of the M40.
I also offer telephone counselling for those unable to access face to face sessions.
