About me

Hello, my name is Younes Hussein. I am integrative Counsellor and registered member of the BACP, and abide by their code of ethics. My counselling approach is essentially person-centered, psychodynamic and transpersonal focusing on the uniqueness, potentiality and self-empowerment of the individual.

I also draw on my knowledge and understanding of psychodynamic (transference) Gestalt, Transactional Analysis (TA) and Cognitive approaches to counselling and psychotherapy.

Principally my approach is holistic and emphasis the importance for each individual of finding his or her own meaning, values and inspiration in life. I do not discriminate on the basis of race colour physical disability, gender, or sexual orientation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am experienced in helping people with a wide range of problems such as anxiety, self-harm and suicidal thoughts, loss, depression, child abuse, emotion difficult, gender issues, sexual problems, and domestic abuse.

Both my academic studies and my training' I have worked with young people aged 11 to 18 years of age and above. Having worked as a child and adolescent counsellor in Secondary School has contributed towards considerable positive changes in my own self-awareness, confidence maturity and increasingly, I have found I have been able to make positive changes in the lives of young people, and it was rewarding to see my efforts being a part of the team support for the trauma healing process for these youngster. I have also learned to deal with trauma cases, risk/competence assessment and considerably complex ethical dilemmas while maintaining professional boundaries.

I have also worked people who cannot speak English, Refugees and asylum seekers, Islamic community’ which has broadened my experience of their problems and given me further insight how they might best be assisted.
