Hi, Im Saiyeda, I am an integrative relational counsellor which means I am trained in several counselling modalities, each of which offer insights and explanations into human behaviour. Therefore, my approach to counselling will always be tailored to meet your particular needs and circumstances.
The turbulent journey of life can often be overwhelming. You may be going through challenging times which may give rise to difficult feelings, anxiety, depression, low mood and loss of self esteem. All this feels so much harder when you are going through this on your own.
If this is familiar to you, counselling may be a good option for you.
I encourage reflection and self exploration which will help you identify which factors in your life are perpetuating problems and will help you arrive at your own solutions. You may learn to identify patterns in your relationships which may be detrimental to your well being and we will work together in how to address these.
As an integrative relational counsellor, I am fully integrated in the relationship with my clients and believe the relationship has the power to heal. I provide you with a warm, accepting and confidential space, free from judgment to explore and improve your emotional well being. I am also sensitive to cultural contexts and will always try and see the world through your lens.
My goal is to make counselling accessible and affordable and to be inclusive of all social and cultural backgrounds. I offer both short term (6-12 weeks) and long term courses of therapy. I am here to meet you where you are; to support you in your experiences, your feelings, your frame of reference.
Please get in touch to discuss any concerns you may have.

I am registered with the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework for good practice. I am committed to providing counselling in a safe and confidential environment. I have also provided counselling at a NHS GP practice, for the Royal Borough of Kingston's Counselling service and for the Kingston Women's Centre.
My experience working in NHS settings as well as the Royal Borough of Kingston and the Kingston Women's Centre has resulted in a diverse client group of both younger and older adults, from a variety of backgrounds and with numerous different presenting issues.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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).
