About me and my therapy practice

About me

I can help you understand yourself and feel more positive through my knowledge of MSc in counselling and positive psychology. What is PP you may ask? Positive psychology focuses on the positive events and influences in life. It has the ability to transforms one's life. It works great with people who suffer from depression. It allows the individual to move beyond surviving to flourishing. I like to integrate it with person centred therapy. 

My experience 

I work with a wide range of cultures and I am very welcoming towards all people regardless of their sexual orientation, culture, beliefs or religion. I have worked in a high school and I am able to offer my services to children. I currently volunteer at a charity called Lancashire BME network, counselling people from the BAME community. I have come across a wide range of issues and people. 

I understand and can work effectively with the Muslim community.

Face to face sessions are available at an extra charge and at certain times. I can also do home visits if they are very local to me. 

About Clients 

I understand that coming to counselling can be very daunting. I aim to provide that safe non judgemental space that many people seek. I take you for who you are as a person and adjust my practices to what suits you. I place the control in the clients hands as they know their issues better than anyone else. I always put my clients best interest at heart.

Overall, my aim is to heal people and allow them to be the best version of themselves.
