If you have been feeling low or struggling with motivation, loneliness, relationships or just tired of overthinking things then you don't need to feel alone with it all. Accessing support from a trained therapist can help address these feelings in a safe environment and manage them better.
My name is Shamma and I am a qualified therapist with experience in working with clients from various walks of life with a variety of issues ranging from anxiety, depression, panic attacks, relational issues, parental issues, suicidal ideation to name a few.
I specialise in bereavement and identity crisis that can lead to despair or even an existential crisis. I also have a special interest in working with faith crisis and sensitive cultural issues that can be hard to relate to with others due to shame and taboo.
Training, qualifications & experience
The therapy that I offer is client led and I work at a pace that suits you. The foundation of my work is humanistic which places the clients wellbeing at the centre of it.
I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework. I currently offer sessions over the phone and through video calls only.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
The initial phone call is free and will last about 15-20 minutes. During this phone call we will both get an opportunity to decide whether it is something we would like to potentially work on together and then maybe arrange our first session. Sessions are £55 for 50 minutes.
