I have more than 8 years experience as a Counsellor and therapist working with diverse background of clients. Owning to my integrative training, I am trained to different approaches according to people needs and demands as well as their expectations from Counselling & Psychotherapy

Currently I am also working with Domestic Violence organisation and Victim Support and provide counselling and assessments to victims. I had been worked wth MIND and EACH.

I have substantial experience in wide range of mental as well as physical problems including:

  • anxiety
  • panic disorder

  • specific phobia such as blood, injection, needle, elevators, lift, travel, pain, insects etc,
  • agoraphobia

I have extensive experience to work with people who have any physical health issues such as acute and chronic illness as well as long term illness. I have personal experience how the physical illnesses have affect on emotional as well as mental health beings.

How I work?

My approach is based on Integrative; which means I am trained to use Psychodynamics approach, Cognitive behavioural Approach, Rational Emotive Behavioural therapy, Humanistic Approach, Existential-Phenomenological Approach and Multi-Model Approach in my practice. I am trained to use different exercises such as relaxation techniques, Guided imagery, fraction relaxation techniques and progressive muscular relaxation techniques. I choose my approach based on your needs and expectations from Counselling & Psychotherapy.

In my personal qualities, I am genuine, empathy, non-judgemental, unconditional positive regards and respect towards my clients. It means I am not seeing you on basis of your characteristics and not on your age, race, ethnicity, religion etc.

Intensive Counselling

I offer intensive counselling. It means that you are not in good mood, or having stress or feeling low for a short time, and want that someone just listen to you without judging you and need someone to stay with you on particular moment instead of to seek counselling for short or long term. It means you have one intense session either in phone or face to face. The length of Intensive session varies according to your need but would not exceed to 90 minutes. With Intensive counselling, you are not bounding with time. Intensive counselling is more suitable for people who are depressed, feeling low, especially in nights or in weekends, bank holidays. Intensive counselling does not include any assessments. It just stays with your relevant (current) issues.

Client feedback:

"Hi, We have taken Marriage counselling from Sidra which enabled me and my wife to recognise each other's feelings and resolved conflicts and improved our relationships.
