Shagufta Qadir BA (Hons) Reg. MBACP
**Currently offering telephone and Skype Sessions due to COVID-19 restrictions
Let me help you overcome problems relating to stress, depression, anger, trauma, addiction, personal and relationship issues, self esteem, bereavement and loss, sexuality and sexual issues, abuse, personality disorder, debt, as well as issues relating to culture and ethnicity. What ever the problem is we can work through it together and overcome the issues in a positive and effective manner that suits YOU best.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and I have many years of experience in working with individuals, groups and families who have experienced Mental Health difficulties.
Although I am trained predominantly to work with a Person-Centred approach I do offer other therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Motivational Interviewing.
We can work together to meet your needs and what is most suitable for you to reach your desired aims and goals of the therapy. There are no time constraints to how many sessions you commit to, as I offer long term and short term/brief therapy.
I also have experience in working with diverse and ethnic minority groups and speak fluent urdu for clients who have language barriers. I am able to offer a safe and confidential space for my clients to explore their issues at the pace that's most comfortable to them, ensuring you that you will be heard without being judged and enable you to move forward in a positive way.
I am a fully qualified psychotherapist counsellor, able to speak in fluent Urdu if you are struggling with language barriers. I am from a south asian ethnicity background where I can provide understanding of overcoming cultural and religious difficulties.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
