Salma Rashid - Psychodynamic/Psychotherapy BACP(M)
I am an experienced Couples and Individual Psychotherapist / Psychodynamic Counsellor. I have a private consulting room based in the City of London and am also available for Private Therapy in the Centre of Canterbury, I am the lead Couples Therapist at the Priory Group Wellbeing Clinic>in Canterburyand am a registered Relate Counsellor.
I bring to my work a variety of experience in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy for Individuals and Couples. My experience include Charity, Private, NHS & Primary Care.
I offer both Time Limited (or brief) counselling to focus on a particular issue offering 6-20 sessions or a more in-depth longer process of psychotherapy which explores in detail what influences behaviour, thought patterns and processes and emotional experience.
My therapeutic approach draws on a range of concepts including psychodynamic, Mentalization Based Therapy and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.
"There are many reasons why you may wish to talk to someone, it may be following a difficult experience like the loss of a loved one or a relationship breakdown or an earlier experience you want to resolve. Perhaps issues with a family member or previous partner remain misunderstood or painful but you may feel now you are ready to talk to someone. Other times it is simply because you feel that talking to someone who may be able to listen and offer some help is something you wish to explore. Speaking to someone in a comfortable, professional and safe environment about things can often bring a sense of understanding to difficult and stressful situations bought on through life's journey. The most important thing to know is that there is someone who can help you and will be able to offer you the type of support that is right for you"
I offer advice and professional help on a range of issues and am flexible in my availability and work specifically to the suitability of your needs.
