About me

My name is Naima and I’m an integrative psychotherapist and a relationship counsellor.

Life is full of transitions, hardships and ups-and downs. Sometimes the distress, pain, or isolation is too intense for us to face alone. The journey seems too long and the destination unreachable. Or it could be that you’re just feeling stuck in a rut. Psychotherapy is a gift to yourself to help you overcome life’s challenges. On that journey to healing, I will be your companion.

My philosophical orientation has its roots in person-centred theory. I believe that you have within yourself the resources for growth and emotional wellbeing. I intend to provide you with an approach that empowers you. I’ll help you establish goals and work towards them.

I will strive to understand both how you see the world, and the significance and impact of your current challenges. The place I am offering you is safe, confidential and non-judgmental. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I have substantial experience in working around women's issues and the abuse they may face. This includes sexual, physical and emotional abuse. With my clients, we work around the aftermath of their traumatic experience. 

While my background is predominantly in supporting women, I also offer therapy to male clients. 

I also have experience in working with depression and anxiety-related conditions. 

Prior to my training in Integrative Psychotherapy, I trained as a Couple Counsellor. I welcome unhappy couples in my practice.

Member organisations

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.

Further information

To get started, contact me either by email or by leaving a voice message. I will aim to get back to you within 24hours.

We'll arrange a first session in which you can tell me what's brought you to therapy and I will give you details on how I work. Following that first session, you can decide if you want to continue with me, and we'll agree on a fixed day and time, and frequency of sessions. 

I offer both short and long term counselling and psychotherapy.
