About me and my therapy practice

Hi Thank you for looking at my profile. 

I am an intercultural second generational Muslim Psychotherapist and have experience of working with Muslim and South East Asian clients.

Being Muslim or South East Asian descent doesn’t make us all the same but there is often a shared experience of what is expected of us from our families, religion and communities.

People from all cultures experience anxiety, depression or worries, but how these are perceived can vary from culture to culture and the type of help needed can differ.

Cross-cultural psychotherapy is particularly sensitive to the importance of race, ethnicity and religion. Being able to connect on a cultural level enable a deeper level of communication and understanding. It can allow a more effective therapeutic experience.

About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I’m Attiya and welcome to my page!

Are you starting to feel increasingly tense and anxious? Do you find yourself thinking over situations again and again? Are you finding it hard to switch off and unwind at the end of the day? Perhaps the same problems crop up time after time, despite your best attempts to tackle them. Or maybe something just doesn’t feel right.

MI provide a safe space of non-judgemental warmth where you can talk and explore yourself and your relationships, and with my help we will work through your issues.


Practice description

Growing up in multicultural and multi-faceted London has allowed me to understand the different issues and challenges within diverse communities. This experience has provided me with a deeper level of understanding and empathy to deal with each unique situation.

My aim as a therapist is to provide a bespoke experience for each individual and their unique circumstances and to provide them with the help and support needed to help overcome their issues in a safe space without any judgement.

I also offer couples counselling which helps to understand how you can get stuck in negative communication cycles and how to work things through. This may involve helping you to slow down your interactions in conflict situations so that there is space to understand how you both get triggered and how to make sense of what you are feeling. This creates the opportunity to address the underlying issues that cause conflict and disconnection, to resolve what may feel like being stuck in a rut, re-learning how to connect with each other.
