Leila Bouhanani - The Therapy Room Counselling
Are you feeling lost and unsure about how to move forward and make a change in your life? Maybe you're not feeling yourself recently and are unsure why? Do you feel that you need space to talk and be heard without judgement? If so counselling can help. Sometimes it can be difficult to talk to friends and family about how you're truly feeling which can leave us holding onto unwanted feelings and emotions. Holding onto these emotions can have a huge impact on our daily lives, leaving us feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope.
Counselling provides a safe, confidential environment where you can explore any issues, feeling and emotions without the fear of judgment. Talking to a trained counsellor can help you make sense of your feelings and life experiences. You may come to your first session with a specific goal or you may come not really knowing what the issue is or how counselling can help. Either is fine as we can work together at your pace to establish your needs.
Training, qualifications & experience
My name is Leila and I am a qualified counsellor. I am here to support you by offering a warm, empathic, non-judgemental space in which you can safely explore your thoughts and feelings. I believe that we all have the capacity to create our own positive solutions so rather than impose solutions I will provide a safe space for you to explore options, gain self-awareness and new perspectives. This will help you in developing positive strategies and give you the tools to implement positive change in your life.
Although my counselling approach is predominantly Person-Centred I also use other styles of counselling such as Cognative Behaviour Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Hypnotherapy and Mindfulness depending on your needs and goals.
I offer sessions from my home which creates a relaxed non clinical enviroment.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- I offer a free 50 minute face to face consultation to meet and discuss your needs. Each session is then £35 for 50 minutes.
Making the first step towards accessing counselling can be a daunting but very worthwhile one. If you have any questions or queries please contact me by phone, text or email and we can have a chat about your needs and how counselling can help.
