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. She has vast experience and knowledge of working across diverse client groups and hence skilled in working transculturally.
