About me and my therapy practice

Hello! I am Nisa, a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor and Bereavement Counsellor. I am BACP registered and accredited.

In my practice, I have helped clients struggling with anxiety, depression, bereavement, childhood abuse, shame, anger, low self-esteem, narcissistic injuries, victims of crime, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), eating disorder,  body dysmorphia and relational trauma created through family dynamics,.

Reaching out for counselling and psychotherapy isn’t easy to do, especially if you haven’t gone to therapy before. Taking that first step is, perhaps the hardest step of all and it takes huge courage to realise that you may need help, and no longer want to suffer and struggle to cope on your own. At first, speaking to a therapist may feel daunting and you may feel uncertain about what to say or what it is that the therapist can do for you.

Counselling can make the difference between ‘continuing to struggle to suffer in silence’ or ‘developing inner strength and the self-belief’ needed to bring about real change.


Practice description

How I work...

Psychodynamic therapy explores the significance of earlier life experiences in shaping our psychological development and our relationships as adults. We will explore your past – and look at the present – to better understand past events, how they are remembered or re-lived, and what effect they may still be having, so that we can understand your present thoughts and what lies behind them.

We all have experiences that shape how we think, feel and behave in the here-and-now. Making links between the present and the past will allow us to understand where certain emotions come from; through this process, we learn new ways to move forward.

Finding the right person to share your story, is an important part in your healing journey. 

When you are ready, please contact me on this directory or visit my webpage.

My first session

During our initial consultation session which lasts 60 minutes, you will have an opportunity to talk about what’s brought you to counselling and to explore what support you may need from therapy.

This is an opportunity to ask any questions you may have. If you would like further sessions, we will agree on a weekly time that works for both of us.

I always recommend that clients have a regular weekly session, as this allows us to develop a strong therapeutic relationship. I am also aware that it may not always be possible to have weekly sessions and I am happy to be flexible to meet your needs around your availability.
