About me

Hi, my name is Rukeyah. I am a fully qualified, experienced Person Centred Counsellor and I am here to provide a safe, confidential and non- judgemental place, to help you explore your thoughts, feelings and any worries or concerns through talk, art, and play. I offer counselling, art and play sessions to children aged 5+, young people, adolescents, adults and also parents.

My counselling practice focuses on you, the client. I like to provide a warm, trusting and supportive space for us to work collaboratively to improve any concerns that you may be facing, on a day to day basis. I believe that building a trusting therapeutic relationship can help provide a deeper understanding and insight into your reasonings for coming along to counselling. I understand that every individual is unique; what may work for one person, might not for another, hence why I use a integrated approach which tailors the therapeutic approach to your individual counselling journey. Using creative approaches such as; art, drawing, painting, games, sand, puppets, etc. can allow you to express yourself in an artistic way.

From experience, I can understand that the first step of starting therapy and finding a counsellor can be daunting, but I am here to help you answer any questions you may have about counselling and the way I work.

I offer face to face, telephone and Skype counselling, both long and short term for children, young people, adolescents, adults and parents. Counselling sessions are ideally a weekly occurrence; this helps to build a trustee relationship and continuing help for the end goal.

I hold a current DBS certificate.

I offer short and long open ended therapy.

Please feel free to contact me via telephone, text or email to discuss more.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
