YOUR COUNSELLOR AND COACH
Your Passionate Counselling Professional
Welcome! You are probably wondering who I am. Well, to begin with, my journey began in 2006 following from the suicide of a close friend of mine. It came as a shock because I did not see it coming nor did I know how to help. She had gone through domestic abuse and her emotional health deteriorated so much that she had to be admitted into the hospital. This event for me was life changing and her death was a wake-up call for me to realize how little knowledge I had in supporting those who were going through turmoil. Nevertheless, it was the beginning of a great passion of mine to emotionally support others during times of difficulty. In fact, it led me to become the founder and director of a charity in 2011 to help women who are homeless and/or have experienced domestic violence that is still running to this day. It was here, where I found my true passion for counselling and coaching. Knowing that I have somehow contributed to another person's life in making it a little bit brighter brings me such joy and satisfaction. Now as an integrative counsellor and coach, I work with young people and adults through the NHS and schools in Birmingham UK. I have a particular passion in promoting emotional well-being in the Muslim community as there are barriers to accessing counselling services.
I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and I have had an enhanced DBS check. I hold a BSc in Psychology, Level 2 &3 diploma in Islamic Counselling, Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, Level 5 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, Certificates in Advanced EFT, NLP Life Coach and Mindfulness meditation.
Every therapist is different and I try to provide a professional service but still be warming and caring at the same time. What I focus on is building a strong trusting relationship with my clients before guiding them through deep and long lasting transformational shifts. I truly believe that establishing a trusting counsellor-client relationship is the core foundation to allow you to be comfortable enough to share your experiences and thoughts. I tailor my sessions according to the client's specific needs, focusing on the underlying emotional root causes that stop clients from achieving their goals in life. This may sound daunting for some but I assure you that it is client-centered which means you are in charge of your sessions and you do not have to do anything you do not want to.
If you feel I could be the counsellor for you, give me a call to see if I can help.
