Niloufar Yasmin Monaghan
Niloufar has post-diploma in counselling and psychotherapy which means she draws on a variety of ways of working according to what her clients need. With over 10 years of working as a counsellor and psychotherapist, Nioufar is registered and accredited with UKCP. As an integrative therapist, she draws on approaches that best suit the issues that clients bring into the therapy room. She works on an open-ended and short-term basis.
Niloufar provides a sensitive, emphatic and supportive space where clients can open up and feel seen and heard for who they truly are. While counselling helps clients to process difficult or painful thoughts and feelings, she believes that therapy can also focus on the potential of her clients. She works with them to identify and draw on their inner resources to live a fuller and more satisfying life. With a background as an interpreter, support worker and employment adviser, Niloufar understands the internal and external pressures people can put on themselves, which can lead to unhelpful or damaging coping strategies. She works to identify healthier ways of managing emotions and stress. She also specializes in depression, anxiety, anger and relationship issues and has a special interest in bereavement, life transition and exile.
