Hello I am Sana. I provide counselling services for age 18 years and over and work with a safe, non-judgemental and confidential approach.
Through empathic support and genuine care, I assist you in becoming your best self and help you achieve your maximum potential so you can navigate through life.
Therapy can help heal from past experiences which may be affecting your present life. Together, I will explore with you your historic past and make sense of the present. I strongly believe that sincere and respectful listening can help you make sense of your emotions and your difficult experiences.
I believe that working with an open, honest and empathic manner will enable you to understand your deeper issues and develop self-awareness and personal growth helping you live to the fullest. I work with a broad range of issues and work with you to make sense of your historic and present difficulties and emotions.
You are the master of your own situation and working alongside me will enable understanding of what you want and make the right choices. I refrain from directing or giving advice and work together to help you process thoughts and feelings. My non-judgemental approach will give you the freedom to talk and share anything difficult without fear of being judged, which results in exploration and understanding of feelings as well as meeting goals or working towards desired changes for a healthier life. Every person is unique and I connect with each and every one of my clients because I believe in the importance of human connection and the power of empathy. Each person brings in a unique life story and experience and I incorporate different psychological theories suited to their individual needs.
My company INNATE counselling and psychotherapy are an approved and regulated CPCAB training centre offering Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills (CSK-L2). I am also a counselling tutor and have robust knowledge of majority of psychological theories.
Who can benefit from therapy
Therapy is for everyone. You do not need to be in the midst of a crisis or suffer a mental health condition to be in therapy. You may choose to do this simply if you need help making a difficult decision. Therapy enables people to understand their inner and deeper emotions and increases self-awareness, which can then help manage day to day stresses and worries of everyday life.
During therapy I will assist you in your journey and work with you to meet your desired goals, whatever they may be.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and abide by their Ethical Framework and committed to sustaining and advancing good practice.
I accept referrals from WPA as one of their recognised practitioners.

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
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.
