Simone Sheikh FDSc MBACP Individual and Relationship Counsellor
Life can sometimes feel really difficult and overwhelming and perhaps there are times in our lives when we experience feelings that we are unable to cope with and are not sure why? It may feel as if there is no one to turn to or help you understand how this may be affecting your life and emotional well being. Whether it’s a temporary phase or unresolved problems from the past the counselling process can offer many benefits. Over time it can help you make sense of your feelings and emotions leading to greater self awareness enabling a more fulfilled life . My aim is to provide a confidential and non-judgmental space in which to explore such issues or difficulties.
I am a (BACP) British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy fully qualified Integrative counsellor, This means I work by integrating Person-Centered, Cognitive Behavioural and Psychodynamic theories. As I believe we are all unique individuals this allows me the flexibility to adapt my working style to suit your own needs. I have experience of working with individuals and couples from different backgrounds and cultures with issues such as depression, anxiety, phobias, sexual abuse, relationship issues, domestic violence, grief, loss, low self-esteem, eating disorders, anger management, work related issues and general counselling.
Please feel free to call me to discuss confidentially any requirements or questions you may have with no obligation and together we can explore if counselling is right for you.
