About me and my therapy practice
Hi, I’m Zahra, a fully qualified UK-based Integrative counsellor and psychotherapist.
I work pluralistically within an integrative framework, which means that I tailor my practice to meet individual client needs. I do so by a) utilising techniques from various approaches, to adapt to my clients’ specific issues and the various stages of therapy; and b) regularly and collaboratively evaluating the therapeutic way of working, to ensure that the approaches and interventions I use match my clients’ preferences and needs. Recognising that one size does not fit all is paramount for successful therapy.
My specialist areas include bereavement, life transitions and issues around work, identity and family. I also have extensive experience working with clients who have underlying anxieties and depression. However, I remain open and receptive to any client topic or concern that comes my way, and I also welcome clients who have no specific issues—those who would like to explore where the space that therapy provides will take them. Whatever your purpose, I will always provide a safe and supportive space to help foster personal growth, exploration, understanding, acceptance and direction.

• Masters in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling, with Distinction.

My first session
-- Our initial session will last 50 minutes.
-- We will explore what brought you to therapy, your background/history and what (if anything) you would like from the process.
-- It will give you a chance to see how I work and decide whether you feel I am the right counsellor for you.
I warmly welcome you to take the first step and honour yourself through therapy.
