About me and my therapy practice
Are you feeling overwhelmed or stressed? Perhaps you want to make changes in your life but do not know where to begin? You are not alone, many people feel this way before embarking on a journey of self-discovery through counselling.
Hayat Counselling gives you a space to talk, share and to make sense of your feelings. Challenging your thoughts, the way you perceive yourself and how your life experiences have impacted your journey so far can increase your self-awareness, confidence and improve the relationship that you have with yourself and others.
Counselling can facilitate major changes in people's lives; changing unhealthy patterns in relationships and at work for example. Therapy allows you to make sense of difficult feelings and clear the path ahead removing obstacles that may stand in the way of you living a fulfilled life as your authentic self.
I am passionate about diversity and cultural issues. I am a member of BAATN (Black and Asian Therapists’ Network). I have a special interest in helping clients who have challenges with self-esteem, and those who feel marginalised or have experienced discrimination. I have worked with NHS Talk Wandsworth IAPT Talking Therapies and have counselled young people at a further education college counselling service. I also provide therapy to unpaid carers in South West London.
I have an understanding, accepting and genuine way of developing a therapeutic relationship with my clients. At Hayat Counselling, I provide a space to clients free from judgement to process difficult emotions and experiences. I facilitate my clients’ journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance. I support others to find their voice and develop their assertiveness and believe that everyone has the ability to achieve personal growth. By supporting clients to recognise and challenge how they perceive themselves, I help them to find their authentic self and realise their potential.
My first session
It is important that you feel comfortable and find a counsellor who is the right fit for you. The first session gives you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the way I work. After you have given it some thought, if you would like to proceed I will book you in for sessions. The initial session is £20 and sessions thereafter are £50. I also have limited slots for unwaged clients at low cost. Sessions last for 50 minutes.
