Hello my name is Shah. I am a Registered BACP counsellor, offering person-centred counselling. I have worked for counselling agencies both locally and in London, the NHS and developing my private practice. My specialty is in trauma, PTSD, anger, anxiety and depression.
I use a non-authoritative approach that encourages you to take more of a lead in discussions. My role is as a facilitator, listening without judgment and acknowledging your experience without moving the conversation in a different direction. I will encourage and support you, and where appropriate guide the therapeutic process. Helping in your process of understanding.
Past or present feelings or problems can be discussed. You may wish to discover the root of the problem or increase self awareness. The therapy can be tailored to suit your wishes and needs. I do not believe in a one size fits all approach. The eventual aim of therapy is to bring about positive change and increase emotional well being.
