About me

There are parts of us that have been hidden or gone into hiding for a really long time. Words at times can't even get close to describe what happened. Being in therapy with a counsellor who can see-in, completely accept and sit-with the deepest and most hurt parts of you can help you meet yourself again and heal your wounds.

If you are feeling sad, anxious or angry you may wonder 'What is wrong with me?', 'Am I bad?' or 'Am I depressed?'.

I am a warm and experienced BACP registered Counsellor. I run a private practice to offer counselling and psychotherapy in central London and SW London. I specialise in anxiety, depression, bereavement and diversity. This includes issues of acceptance, substance misuse, relationships and isolation for Gay men and the LGBTQ community. I am 'Gay Muslim' aligned.

I provide a safe and confidential space where we can explore, recognise and understand more deeply any difficult feelings that you may have, help you grow your self awareness, and support you to consider and make any changes you may decide to make.

Counselling can help with many different issues. You may benefit from counselling if you feel blocked and want a better understanding of who you are or the experiences you have had. You may have reached a point where you are struggling with a life event or having issues with certain relationships.

I specialise in:

  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Diversity issues
  • Bereavement/Loss

Other issues:

  • Relationship issues
  • PTSD
  • Childhood issues
  • Trauma
  • Family issues
  • Phobias

I see clients by appointment only.

Call me on 07533204269 to arrange an initial session.

I work with:

People over 18 years old.

How I work

My practice is underpinned by the integrative framework of Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy, which brings together a variety of theories making it possible for me to adapt my style and thinking to what will help the client.

Through my previous training and ongoing professional development I have evolved an adaptive relational style of work that is sensitive to culture and that takes into account my clients needs and personal beliefs, yet containing and therapeutic in nature.

I work in English and in Arabic depending on your preference.

I appreciate the challenge starting therapy can present. Our first session will be for us to meet  toso and you can see where your sessions will be and to tell me something about yourself.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • I have a Diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapeutic Counselling where I was trained in this integrative framework for psychotherapy and counselling. This enables me to make use of a variety of different theories; this enables me to work with a broad range of issues. I was particularly drawn to Transactional Analysis (TA) because of its integration and application of different theories. I'm currently completing a Master’s Degree in TA Psychotherapy at the Metanoia Institute in London.

    As well as working in private practice, I have acquired extensive experience in the areas of bereavement, Depression and Anxiety and Diversity issues within several counselling services.

  • I attend regularly clinical supervision with an experienced and qualified supervisor. This is to help me ensure the high standards of the therapy I offer. This is also in line with the BACP, which provides exacting standards to ensure the high quality of therapy provided.
