About me and my therapy practice

Do you feel alone, anxious, depressed, unappreciated or have a low mood? Do you feel many things are left unsaid and that nobody really has time to understand you? Do you have little self-worth, lack in confidence and struggle with most things that you attempt to do? Are the daily demands of home life and work stress increasing?

My name is Naveed, I am a qualified Integrative Relational Counsellor/Psychotherapist, which means our sessions can be tailored to meet your needs. I am able to use various theoretical approaches to explore and gain insight into your patterns, behaviour and emotional difficulties. I can provide a safe, non-judgemental space where I will be there to support and listen to you. I can help you to explore presenting issues, you and I can explore new ways that can help change and improve your life.

As an Anxiety UK approved therapist I can support you to explore your anxiety. You and I can look at ways that can improve your coping strategies, we can explore new ways to manage and cope. I understand coming to counselling can be difficult but I will be there to support you but more importantly you are in charge of your sessions so you can choose to talk about what is important for you. 

Areas that I cover are London, Surrey, and Middlesex.

Currently, I work at Safe Haven where I provide support to individuals suffering from high anxiety, personality disorders and mental health crisis. I work in the NHS offering short term therapy to patients. I also offer work place counselling for Royal Borough of Kingston. I volunteer counselling services for an NHS trust charity that offers therapy to cancer patients, terminally ill patients and families that are affected by a diagnosis of a family member. I also work with people that are survivors of rape and sexual abuse.
