One to One Counselling to support with

Anxiety; Loss; Confidence & Self-esteem; Depression; Discrimination & Stereotyping; Relationship Issues

How are you......REALLY?

  • Fed up of everyone looking to you as the strong one?
  • Finding it difficult to trust others with your innermost thoughts and fears?
  • Want to make your life your own again but low self-esteem/confidence is getting in the way?
  • Struggling to manage your anxiety?
  • Reality is different to what you planned, because you or a loved one have experienced a loss or change in health?
  • Finding it hard to make sense of a change in a relationship that is important to you?
    Whatever the issue, I can offer you some "light at the end of the tunnel".
    You don't have to do this alone.

    Change is possible

    I provide a safe space to look at the difficult events, thoughts and most importantly the feelings like anger, anxiety, frustration, guilt and sadness that you've experienced but find hard to share or try to cover up with others.

    This frees up the emotional space needed to look to the future and we can work together to identify what you'd like going forward and if helpful, put together strategies that can help you achieve your goals.

    An opportunity to unpack your emotional suitcase then re-pack differently to give yourself more space.

    Counselling that works for you

    I've had therapy myself, so know how important it is for you to feel comfortable with the person that you work with and use my naturally open minded outlook, sensitivity, skills and training to provide you with:

    - a compassionate one to one space.
    - an alternative perspective on your difficulties, to help you achieve the changes and outcomes that you're looking.
    - support that's the right fit for you.

    I work privately and also for a national cancer charity at a local NHS Hospital where I've provided both face to face and online counselling to patients, family members and staff impacted by health issues and loss.

    I have experience in working with anxiety, stress, depression, loss through bereavement or changes in health, low self esteem and confidence to relationship issues.

    I'm currently offering online counselling sessions and limited face to face therapy from rooms in Essex.

    Seeing you for who you are

    My personal and professional experiences as a British-born Asian woman, have shown me how our lives and achievements can be limited by stereotypes and labels.

  • Have you given yourself high expectations to live up to or are you trying to fulfill what other's expect of you?
  • Are you increasingly concerned about what you "should be doing" rather than "what you need or want to be doing"?
  • Do you feel judged or discriminated against?
  • Have labels and stereotypes taken over to the point that you've lost sight of yourself e.g. feeling defined by your illness?

    All of the above can impact our self-esteem and confidence as well as our relationships with others.

    We can work together to challenge these limitations, understand your own measures of success and focus on how you would like your life to look and feel.

  • Managing Anxiety - Health and Other

    We all experience anxiety at some time or other because, in its most basic form, it's our body’s way of keeping us safe from harm. However for some of us, anxious thoughts and feelings can get in the way of every day life.

    If this is something that you struggle with, counselling can help you to understand your anxious responses, identify your triggers and look at techniques or strategies as well as the negative thought patterns that often add "fuel to the anxiety fire".

    Whilst we can't get rid of anxiety completely, but we can work together to make the anxiety feel more manageable.

    My Practice

    Given the Coronavirus Public Health crisis I am currently providing effective therapy online using Zoom. This allows me to provide you with regular ongoing support, without the challenges of travel and/or parking and an unfamiliar environment.

    I can offer face to face sessions if working online isn't an option. This would be subject to current Government guidelines and completion of a risk assessment, as ensuring your safety is always my priority.

    I have rooms in Wickford and North Fambridge, Essex UK (see Locations). So, if you're looking for a counsellor near Basildon, Billericay, Chelmsford, Danbury, Maldon, Rayleigh, Southend, South Woodham Ferrers or the Dengie Peninsula, get in touch.
