Tahira Hussain - MBACP (Accred) Counsellor/Psychotherapist
Welcome! I am an experienced, Bacp accredited counsellor based in East London. I am working with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, bereavement , loss and trauma. I have many years of experience working with individuals, who have experienced historic child sexual abuse, domestic abuse, rape and sexual violence.
I can offer individual, long-term or short-term therapy. I work in an integrative way within a person-centred framework. I believe that we all have the potential to heal from wounds. We can overcome obstacles and challenges that have happened during childhood or during our adult lives.
I offer therapy in English, urdu, punjabi and Hindi. If you would like to arrange an initial session, please give me a call - 07903099368 or email me.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
