About me and my therapy practice
Hi, I'm Ayesha (my pronouns are she/her) and I'm a person-centred therapist based in Glasgow.
I have experience working with a wide range of issues, including bereavement, anxiety and depression, abuse, trauma, self-esteem and identity issues, and suicidal thoughts and self-harm.
I work in an affirming way with people of all genders and sexualities, as well as with issues around non-monogamy and kink, and have experience working with gender, sex and relationship diversity.
Please get in touch with any questions, I am happy to chat things through and figure out if I am the right therapist for you.
Person-centred therapy is based on the belief that if people have a non-judgemental, open and warm space to talk about what they are going through, they will figure out their own solutions and best way forward.
We will work together to figure out what you need from therapy and how I can best support you; this collaborative way of working has lots of space for creativity, and puts a lot of value on what you as the client feel you need. At the same time I will bring my experience and knowledge and can offer lots of suggestions for our work together.
For example, I may ask questions to help you go deeper into what you are exploring, or offer psychoeducation to help you understand your experience. I also work in a trauma-informed way - this means working with trauma slowly and carefully, with an awareness of how the body and mind are connected. I refer to Polyvagal Theory as a model for nervous system education.
I also work with a systemic lens - this means an awareness of how the society we live in treats people unjustly based on characteristics such as race, gender, sexuality or disability. I am mindful of how these dynamics also occur in the therapy setting.
My first session
I offer a free 20 minute video consultation for us to have a chat and see if we are 'the right fit' for working together. This is a chance for you to ask any questions you may have, and for me to ensure that I have the right knowledge and experience to support you.
