Nisa Shah, BA, MA, MBACP
Times of struggle and crisis can also present real opportunities for growth. I work with a unique combination of eastern and western approaches. I provide a safe, supportive, and warm environment in which you can explore and find your own way and insights into your life.
I place equal emphasis on mind and body and explore lifestyle options with a view to reaching a happy and healthy life. I treat everyone as an individual who needs a unique blend of approaches to help them. I believe a strong therapeutic relationship helps people to find their own resources and inner strengths.
My therapeutic training involves a combination of Person-centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive, Analytic, and Gestalt therapy. My key emphasis is on empathy, genuineness, warmth and acceptance. As a BACP member I fully abide by their code of conduct.
I also provide a NICE (NHS) approved Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) programme to treat Mild to moderate depression, anxiety, panic attacks, OCD. I believe CBT is most effective when combined with talking therapy.
