About me

Hello and welcome.

I'm Semeyra, a BACP accredited counsellor.  Thank you for reading my profile. Reaching out for help is not always easy but by considering therapy you have taken the first steps towards overcoming the difficulties you are currently experiencing.

As an experienced counsellor, I will be able to work with you to understand your current situation in greater depth. Most importantly, I have the experience and skills gained from several years of working directly with clients going through a range of personal difficulties, to enable you to move forward with your life.

I am very experienced at working with people both short and long term, to make changes in their lives and break free from difficult patterns or repetitive behaviour that might have been holding them back.

In my work with you, I will provide a safe and supportive therapeutic setting, where we can work together to understand the issues that have brought you to therapy and find ways of moving forward.

I incorporate a range of different methods in my work; as well as traditional models of counselling and talking therapy, I also bring mindfulness principles into my work when appropriate.

My Experience

I have worked with people from many different backgrounds, to enable them to overcome a wide range of life issues and develop the skills to build their resilience and continue moving forward with their lives.

I have a special interest in working with people around relationship issues (including difficult and repetitive relationship patterns, coping with relationship break-ups, difficulties around emotional intimacy) as well as family issues and difficulties related to cultural identity.

As well as my special interests I am also very experienced and able to work with a wide range of other issues including; low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement, trauma, past abusive experiences, illness, addictive behaviour,  difficulties related to identity, including cultural identity issues, eating disorders/ body image difficulties.

I have worked with many clients within my private practice, universities, the mental health organisation MIND and the NHS, to overcome these difficulties and to move forward with their lives, with a stronger sense of confidence and resilience

I am an Accredited and Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I fully abide by the BACP code of ethics in my practice.

I offer a free 15-minute telephone consultation, where we can talk about your reasons for wanting therapy and what you hope to achieve.
