About me

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.  

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
