About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified counsellor trained in Humanistic Counselling based on Transactional Analysis. I have my private practice. 

In my therapy practice, I offer a safe and confidential space to express and explore your situation, feelings, struggles, options or decisions.

I work with adults and provide therapy for various issues.

I am a multilingual counsellor and can offer session/s in English, Urdu, or Hindi.

I offer brief therapy: 1-6 sessions, and long-term therapy: up to 12, 24 or more) 

I use a humanistic approach to counselling and use methods, activities, interventions according to the needs of my client. I explore with my client/s what they feel comfortable with and what can be beneficial to them. My sessions are co-created therapeutic spaces for my client. I encourage authenticity, empathy, integrity and respect towards self and others.  I am currently working with two charities: MindworksUK, based in London and The Olive Branch Counselling, based in Winchester, Hampshire.



Practice description

I am offering remote sessions on Zoom, Telephone as well as live texting. I also offer face to face sessions currently in one of the venues in Ealing. 

I offer free of charge initial session -over the phone (20 -50 minutes) where I discuss contracts, confidentiality, safeguarding and risk assessment. The client will have the opportunity to communicate their concerns and what they are expecting and what they would like out of the sessions. This session can be an opportunity to see if I am the right practitioner for you. I will be assessing if I can offer you what you need. I encourage weekly sessions but understand that there can be circumstances where clients can only do fortnightly sessions. If clients after a few sessions feel that they would like to end the sessions they are welcome to end. 

I offer 50 mins session. 


My first session

Our first session is about welcoming you to discuss what brings you here and I usually offer a block of 6 sessions and then review with mutual agreement. There will be a contact detail form, assessment sheet and a contract sheet to go through. As we would have already discussed the contract, and gone through the assessment over the phone earlier - this session would be more about knowing each other and the therapeutic space where you will have the opportunity to share or ask anything that concerns you regarding the counselling journey. We will have time to address the main issues and problems and see if we can come up with a focus on our work ahead.
