Our networking events provide opportunities to meet other practitioners interested in exploring the relationship between spirituality, belief, faith and religion and their therapeutic or pastoral contexts.

Network group co-ordinators
I am a BACP accredited counsellor, therapeutic coach and qualified supervisor, working in private practice, under my organisations ‘Myira Khan Counselling’ and ‘Grow To Glow’. I also deliver workshops and events internationally and am a regular speaker and facilitator at national conferences. In 2017 I helped establish the Leicester Centre for Psychodynamic Counselling, which offers counselling, counselling training and CPD workshops.
I'm the founder of the Muslim Counsellor and Psychotherapist Network (MCAPN). MCAPN connects Muslim counsellors, therapists and psychologists, via networking, events and CPD opportunities and raises visibility of Muslim practitioners via their counselling directory.
I was a Trustee of BACP from 2016 to 2019. As a role-model, Muslim and East African-Asian counsellor, supervisor and coach I represent diversity within the profession and promotes counselling to minority and marginalised communities, to break the stigma of mental health and therapy. I was awarded the Mental Health Hero Award in 2015.
