Hello my name is Naina, welcome to my profile. I am a Person-Centred Counsellor offering one to one counselling sessions in a safe and confidential space.
I feel forming a therapeutic relationship with my clients is key for our work together. I work using the humanistic approach, exploring the whole person and understand that each person is unique. This approach states that we all naturally tend to move towards goodness, in which, difficult experiences are obstacles along our journey and with the right support, we all have the ability to reach our goals.
My aim is to provide a warm, confidential space for you to work through any difficulties you may be having and to support you, enabling you to explore your feelings in a safe environment at your own pace.
In addition to my Private Practice, I am a trained volunteer bereavement Counsellor for a registered charity. I also have experience of counselling cancer patients within an NHS Oncology department. Furthermore both of these roles have enabled me to gain experience working with people with diverse backgrounds and a wide range of presenting issues.
I offer a free 20 minute consultation to provide opportunity for us to establish your needs and assess if we both feel we can work together.
