About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I am Shamim, a qualified BACP Registered Counsellor, and Psychotherapist working online with clients throughout the UK.

I am an integrative therapist using the Relational Approach drawing primarily from the humanistic and psychodynamic theoretical approaches.

As well as individual therapy, I deliver workshops within workplaces, encouraging conversations around mental health and normalising going to therapy. 

Practice description

I offer Counselling and Psychotherapy on a short and long term basis using the Integrative Relational Approach. 

This simply means that the basis of my approach focuses on the importance of the relationship between the client and the counsellor. My aim is to facilitate sessions to fit your needs by using different styles of therapeutic & psychotherapy theoretical models that could be most helpful for you. 

I currently have availability for telephone and online counselling only. I provide a safe space for you to talk, explore and reflect on the challenges that you face in your life. 

My first session

I offer a free 15minute telephone consultation where you can ask any questions you may have.

In the first session we will explore what you hope to gain from counselling. We can discuss how we will work together and you can decide if you would like to proceed with further sessions. 

You can message me from this page or via the link to my website above.
