About me

Hello, I’m Saara, and I offer a safe, non-judgmental space where you can openly discuss any concerns or challenges you are experiencing. I am a qualified BACP therapist, holding a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I provide one-to-one counselling and psychotherapy sessions to adults.

I specialise in integrative therapy. This means I work holistically, using a blend of therapeutic techniques and approaches to best suit you.

I understand that coming to therapy can sometimes feel daunting. I always work at your pace and will listen deeply, working alongside you to support you in feeling accepted and comfortable in the room.

Here are just a few of the issues I can support you with:

  • Exploring patterns in your behaviour to identify barriers that might be preventing you from reaching your goals. This can help you make positive changes in your life.
  • Understanding relationship dynamics to improve your relationships with others
  • Overcoming overthinking, burnout, stress, and other common symptoms related to anxiety.
  • Self-esteem and confidence-related issues, including body image and self-identity. This includes exploring internal dialogue and factors that might be influencing this. This can help you create self-compassion and acceptance.
  • Overcoming lack of motivation, low mood, isolation, and other depression-related symptoms.
  • Experiences of loss, grief, and other life transitions, including health-related issues.
  • Connecting more deeply with your feelings to help you process emotions more effectively. This can help you connect more deeply with your inner self.
  • Developing healthy boundaries with yourself and others.
  • Overcoming experiences of childhood issues and trauma-related issues.

Being person-centered means that we proceed at your pace, building a strong therapeutic relationship and utilising techniques that best suit your goals. I listen deeply without judgment, creating a comfortable space for you to discuss your experiences.

Training, qualifications & experience

My background and experience 

I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of East London. I also hold a master's degree in social work, and I work as a Social Work Reflective Practice Practitioner, supporting social workers with self-reflection and well-being. I have over 8 years experience working directly with children, young people and adults. 

I value inclusivity and have experience working with people from a diverse range of backgrounds. I recognise that we are all unique, with our own identities. I will strive to sensitively understand your culture, beliefs, identities, values, and experiences, among other factors that are relevant to you. This aims to create a safe and inclusive space.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
