sh With Therapy - Shireen Noor
A very warm hello and thank you for reading my profile,

I also do sessions via Zoom,Skype, FaceTime and phone. I offer a free 15 minutes phone consultation, pease email or call me to book your free consultation
I am a qualified and accredited therapist in private practise with 10 years experience as a therapist and previous 10 years working with extremely vulnerable clients within the homelessness sector. I have also worked as an assistant psychologist for the Schizophrenic twin study at the Hospital - Institute of psychiatry and the Psychosis Therapy project at Islington Mind.
Therapy and counselling can help you find relief from psychological difficulties like anxiety, general anxiety disorder, depression, panic attacks, eating disorder ( the list goes on). Psychological difficulties interrupt your day to day to life, it effects your relationships, professional life or marriage, you stop socialising and isolate yourself from friends and family.
You reach out to a counsellor at a point in your life when you want someone to listen you, you feel the need to be heard and make sense of the issues you are going through.
Speaking to a counsellor is not the same as speaking to your friends and family because you are speaking to someone who is qualified and trained to listen. You don't feel like you are burdening your family and friends. I am a compassionate, non judgemental, empathetic therapist and do my best to provide you a safe place to speak.
I have helped clients overcome anxiety, depression, panic attacks, eating disorders, trauma, relationship issues, bereavement, childhood trauma, marriage/couple counselling and identity crisis.
You don't have to suffer from mental health to seek help from a psychotherapist and counsellor. In life you may encounter difficulties that begin to impede with your daily life and you feel the need to find a place to talk and explore your feelings.
I understand that weekly face-to-face sessions are not always possible for all clients, including busy executives who travel extensively or who are based abroad. My counselling services are tailored for each client to combine meetings online or by to maintain regular contact for continuity of your therapy
I work with people from all traditions, cultures, religious and ethnic background.
I hold myself to professional codes of ethics and guidance set by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) thereby assuring the utmost confidentiality to all my clients.
Just a little note to say thank you for all your support over the last year or so. I can really see the changes I have made and feel our work together has been very constructive...'
I have had the opportunity to sit with Shireen who is amazing. She actually listens to you which i feel is rare. I felt safe talking to her which is so important...I would definitely recommend Shireen's sessions
Amazing woman who listens patiently and makes you feel completely at ease, highly recommend her
My session with Shireen have really helped me to understand my anxiety and learn ways to cope with it. The support has made a big difference to my life. Thank you Shireen for always being approachable and for listening.
Shireen's understating of human emotion is undeniably accurate as she lets you tell your own story

What is counselling and psychotherapy?
Counselling and psychotherapy allow you to explore areas where you might feel stress, anxiety or fears. It provides space to explore and find a deeper understanding of yourself and discover the resources that you have within you to help manage symptoms such as depression, anxiety or other mental health concerns.
How long will psychotherapy take?
This depends entirely on you and why you seek to begin the psychotherapy journey. You may have a specific issue to discuss or you may want to make deeper changes in your life and pursue longer-term work.
I offer short term counselling for a period of 3 months where we meet weekly. If you have a desire to undergo long term psychoanalytical psychotherapy work this will be open ended and we decide together when this stops.
Why do i need to speak to a psychotherapist or counsellor? I talk to my friends?
Psychotherapists and Counsellors go through comprehensive training and extensive personal psychotherapy before we can work with you. A psychotherapist will not tell you what to do but support you in finding the resources within you to better manage and resolve your situation and symptoms.
