About me

Welcome, my name is Nasrin and I am a fully qualified UKCP Registered Psychotherapist working with children, couples, families and adults, both individually in a variety of settings.

I am passionate about the work that I do and have extensive experience and training enabling me to help people with challenging couple and family communication issues. 

In my private practice, I work with diverse issues such as anxiety, low self-esteem, attachment issues, stress, depression, infidelity, ADHD, autism neurodiversity, relationship and family issues, couples counselling and complex trauma. 

For the past 20 years, I have been working with children and adults and currently work as a senior psychotherapist for the NHS. I work with a wide range of issues which you might come across in your life. When you find yourself "stuck", unsure about your life direction, unhappy about relationships, or generally anxious or worried, I can offer confidential therapeutic support that will help you to make sense of these emotional and relational experiences.

I have a lot of experience with couples work with communication breakdown and trust issues. 

I am also an EMDR (Eye-movement desensitisation and reprocessing) trauma practitioner. I specialise in the treatment of children, adolescents and adult sufferers of complex trauma, anxiety and depression. The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) has recommended EMDR as one of the choices for PTSD.

I value the diversity in us all, whether that’s to do with your race, ethnicity and the colour of your skin, gender or sexuality, age, religious or political belief, disability - to name a few. I have an LGBTQ-affirmative and an anti-racist approach. These affect all people because each of us are diverse in our own ways, and it’s by appreciating these differences that we might learn to be more compassionate to ourselves and others.

I aim to create a safe, non-judgmental environment for you and work with your strengths to help create positive changes in your life. I am happy to offer a consultation via zoom or email/phone in the first instance so we can talk through whether this is the right kind of therapy for you. Please call me on 07939 580791 or email me click here to send me an email.
