Life can bring up issues that can cause emotional distress and unhappiness and create a sense of brokenness and fragmentation. This can affect our wellbeing and quality of life in terms of health, work and relationships. In addition to this our search for meaning and purpose in life can sometimes be challenged. This can often lead to symptoms of anxiety depression and unhappiness. Psychological therapy can help in exploring these issues and working towards healing, recovery and a more positive sense of wellbeing and living.
Salma's approach is an integrative one that encompasses various modalities and skills to tailor therapy for each clients individual needs. These modalities include psychodynamic, person centred , hypno-psychotherapy , transactional analysis, cognitive behaviour therapy, mindfulness and psycho-spiritual work. She has vast experience of working with relationship issues (both with couples and individuals including Children and young people), postnatal depression, trauma, abuse, separation/divorce, low mood/anxiety, stress, eating/alcohol/drug difficulties, low self-esteem and body image issues, bereavement and loss, work related issues , redundancy, career changes, retirement, long -term illness and also infertility.

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.
