Nabeelah Khan-Cheema BA (Hons), MBACP
Hi, I’m Nabeelah. I offer counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to women in two locations: Knowle in Solihull and Hall Green in Birmingham.
Most of the time we can cope with what life throws at us....some of us may be fortunate enough to have supportive family and friends to help us through. But there may be times when you feel you can't turn to them. You may not want to burden them, or you may worry that they won't understand or even that you will be judged.
This is where counselling can help. It's a safe space where you can explore whatever is troubling you. So whether it’s a specific problem or you’re not really sure what the issue is, I can help.
How counselling can help
The women I work with gain on so many levels. Not only can counselling help to reduce things like anxiety and stress, but it can also have an impact on your physical health, as well as improving your relationships with those close to you.
Some of the benefits of counselling reported by clients are:
- Worrying less
- More confident in your decisions
- Discovering coping mechanisms
- Being less concerned with what others think
- Fewer arguments and more intimacy with your partner
- Saying “no” without feeling guilty
- Being able to control your anger better
- Having more energy and sleeping better
So if you would like to start making changes in your life, then please contact me.
A little about me
For the past 30 years, I have worked as an Orthoptist within the NHS. However, after having counselling myself, and realising the huge impact it had on me, I decided to retrain to become a psychotherapist. And it’s this combination of my personal experience, my extensive training and my passion to help others, that I bring to the counselling room.
I also understand how the thought of counselling can be a daunting prospect. You may feel concerned about what to say or feel nervous about sharing your inner thoughts with a stranger. I, therefore, make every effort to help you feel at ease, to enable you to speak freely without the fear of being judged.
If you would like more information about what to do once you’ve decided to try counselling, and what the first session involves, take a look at my website on “What to do next?” https://www.gateway-counselling.com/contact/
I have helped women with a range of issues including anxiety, depression, family issues, panic disorders, bereavement, anger management, generalised anxiety disorder and low self-esteem. I also have a special interest in working with mums with postnatal depression and women struggling with the menopause.

If you have any questions or concerns, I am happy for you to call me for an informal chat. I offer a free 15-minute telephone consultation, with no obligation.
