Shokoufeh (Shokouh) Basset MBACP Psychotherapy and Counselling
"Life has no meaning a priori ... It is up to you to give it a meaning, and value is nothing but the meaning that you choose". Jean-Paul Sartre
Hello. My name is Shokouh.
I am an experienced BACP registered clinical psychotherapist, offering counselling and psychotherapy on a short and long-term therapy, depending on the individuals need. My specialities are working with trauma, post trauma stress disorder (PTSD), immigration issues, anxiety, difficult relationships, addiction, feelings of depression, low self-esteem, breavement, eating disorder and workplace problems. I provide clients with a confidential, warm, empathic and non-judgemental space to talk about the difficulties they are experiencing and help overcome them.
My experience and training have enabled me to develop expertise in various treatment models. As an integrative counsellor, I am able to draw on different approaches and techniques that suit the person you are and the issues that you are presented with.
I see the client as a unique individual, living within a wider context of community, society, culture and world. We each have our struggles, dilemmas, painful memories and anxieties, but we also have the potential to change at least how we deal with them and relate to them. Counselling and psychotherapy provide opportunities for you to talk about issues of concern to you, to explore your feelings, values and life choices, to increase your awareness and to expand your repertoire of ways of viewing and relating to yourself, others and the world.
I have worked in a variety of settings including Mind, the voluntary sector, specialist hospital psychotherapy services and privately.
I am within a short distance from the tube station.
