About me

Hi, my name is Naheed and I am an Integrative therapist working in Nottingham online and in-person. If you are feeling dissatisfied with your life and within your relationships, feeling isolated due to past experiences or struggling with anxiety and depression and looking for support, I am committed to providing a safe, empathic and confidential space where you can explore your experience with respect and understanding.

I have an in-depth understanding of the experiences of a wide range of women particularly in the context of being a daughter, sister, mother, wife, friend or colleague and can offer fresh insight to familiar patterns. 

I am passionate about supporting women through the challenges associated with life's transitions. Whilst this is unique to every woman it shows up as feelings of anxiety and depression. You can also feel unworthy, lack self-belief, lose confidence in yourself-the result of many experiences which we can explore together. I work at your pace offering support and challenge where appropriate.I accept all your feelings and will support you to develop greater self-awareness to improve your relationship with yourself and others.

For the past 2 years my work has focussed on supporting women impacted by their experiences of early relational trauma, emotional neglect, sexual abuse and eating disorders . I have worked within an educational setting, providing therapy to young women working with their feelings of identity, low self-esteem and anxiety.

I work in a culturally sensitive way with clients from a variety of backgrounds often very different to my own. I recognise and respect this difference acknowledging we all have our unique path.
My priority is to create a genuine, warm and non-judgmental environment to build trust as I believe that your experience of acceptance within a therapeutic relationship with me will stimulate healing and growth for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have studied for 3 years and qualified with a BSc Hons in Counselling and Psychotherapy gained from The Sherwood Psychotherapy Institute (SPTI).

I am registered with the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework.

I have been working with women from a range of ethnicities, cultures and social backgrounds for over two years and am currently an associate psychotherapist with the Nottingham Counselling Service. I have also worked as a counsellor in a further education college and now work in private practice in Nottingham.

I undertake regular supervision with a BACP registered supervisor. I  like to keep abreast of new and developing research frequently updating my skills through continued professional development workshops.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

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).

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.
