Zeenat Arif (MBACP) Qualified Counsellor
Being listened to and being heard, is powerful. Having space to open up and talk, a space that is safe and free of judgement, helps. This is what I do, I can help.
My interests lay in the relational qualities of therapy. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the very essence of therapy and I aim to foster a trusting environment that allows you to be yourself completely, without judgement.
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor based in Blackburn. I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I work mostly within the Person-Centred approach and I have trained in other modalities allowing for a more integrative way of working if that is what clients require.
