About me and my therapy practice

Hello and welcome. I'm Neda. I am here to accompany you in exploring what matters most to you. I work in a mutual, relational way, enquiring into your specific experience, knowing that you are the true expert of yourself underneath adaptations you have had to make. I provide a safe, empathic space for you to explore what you bring without judgement.

Integrative Transactional Analysis offers a humanistic approach to understand yourself and others, and to explore your underlying needs.

I will use a trauma-informed approach where all of you is welcome and accepted.

Are you seeking a deeper understanding of yourself and a desire for greater enjoyment in life? Do you wish to uncover the origins of challenging emotions and feelings such as anxiety, and receive support in addressing them? Are you looking to discover methods for more effective communication and living in your relationships with others? It's common to feel stuck, as if there are no options for progress. However, counselling or psychotherapy within a safe relationship, in a secure environment can facilitate a greater comprehension of our choices and inherent strength.

I consider myself a Highly Sensitive Person, and use this experience to create a welcoming space for clients who require a more tailored environment to feel safe.

I am also of dual nationality, which enriches my practice with the experience of a mixed heritage. 

Practice description

I have a Level 7 (Masters level) postgraduate Diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy from the Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy.

I have completed additional training courses on working with trauma.

I have completed training on working with Autism in the Therapy Room and am Neurodiversity-affirming. I am LGBTQI+ allied.

I have 7 years of experience of providing emotional support and a safe space to people to explore difficulties, as a Samaritans volunteer and roles in the charity sector/partnered with the NHS. I am a trained Mental Health First Aider.

In my previous career I worked in a large pharmaceutical corporation. I bring with me the knowledge and understanding of human biological processes, and of the dynamics in large organisations and some of the challenges clients can face in various organisational roles. 

My first session

I offer a free 30 minute consultation or a half price first session. In our first session I will seek to understand what is important to you from therapy, and what you would like to work on or change. We will see if we are a good fit to work together. We will explore what brings you to therapy to inform the way we will work together. We will start to build the therapeutic relationship that is so important for effective therapeutic work. I will speak to you about confidentiality and safeguarding in order to ensure our safety working together. There will be space for you to ask any questions you have about me or the therapy process.
