About me

Hello I am Shanaj. I am an experienced and fully qualified integrative counsellor and psychotherapist. I am a registered member of the BACP. I currently work via the telephone or via a video link. My practice is based at London Waterloo.

Life can be difficult and the challenges we face can result in us feeling vulnerable. Therapy can provide a confidential, safe and supportive space for you to discuss your issues.

I aim to provide the safe, confidential and supportive space for exploring issues that may be troubling you. I will listen without judgement and work together with you so that you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have completed the MA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of Roehampton.

I have worked in different settings and I have met wide range of people from different backgrounds. I have worked with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement,  trauma, abuse, racial prejudice, domestic abuse. I am open to explore other issues that maybe troubling you.

Member organisations


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.

Further information

I feel that therapy works best if there is a good working relationship between the client and the therapist. I therefore consider that the first appointment with you is an initial assessment of the situation. At this meeting we can decide if working together is suitable for us.  It also gives you an opportunity to ask questions that you may have and to assess whether you feel we can work together.

You are most welcome to contact me either by phone or email to arrange a suitable meeting time for the initial meeting.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
