Sanjit Hussain MBACP
Hi my name is Sanj and I provide Counselling to adults, children and young people.
I have over 1600 hours of working with young people aged 6-18years and over 2000 hrs with those aged 18+. I have 12 years experience in this field of work and before that I’ve always worked in support roles and managerial roles within domestic abuse, homeless services, Cruse bereavement Care, family support worker roles, children’s worker.
I feel the relationship we have is very important and it's built on trust. You are the expert in yourself, I help you to understand and make sense of what is going on for you and enable you to work through the issues you may be facing
You are making the second step in accessing support, the first step is acknowledging there's an issue. My stance on offering support is to do just that, I work in an empathic, non judgemental manner and try my best to view my clients world through their eyes, as if in their shoes. I offer 1 hour sessions on a weekly or fortnightly basis depending on what works for you. My priority is to put you first.
I offer Counselling in English, Punjabi and Mirpuri. I offer short and long term therapy. I work as an integrative counsellor using various techniques dependant on your needs. I also work in a creative, holistic and spiritual way.
If I feel I cannot help I will say so, I May hold you in a safe place while you seek to access another service. I would rather discuss your circumstances with you then you not access my service.
I have been an independent Counsellor since 2008. I also offer training workshops to organisations on self harm, honour killings, forced marriage and honour related crimes, as well culture and diversity. I offer 1:1 and group Counselling.
