Psychotherapy with Sina
“Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.”
Starting therapy can be daunting. I understand that it can be difficult to open up about the challenges in your life and to seek out help. I have been there myself.
I offer a supportive, confidential environment to explore whatever your concerns are. It is a safe space in which anything can be said without judgement. I do not seek to categorise or diagnose you. Indeed, I do not see you as broken, or in need of a cure as such. Life can be a struggle and I see my role as helping you to make sense of yours so that you can move forward and embrace life once more.
My way of working is gentle but challenging. Therapy is a collaborative journey and I believe that the most important element is a deeply caring, trusting relationship. I will listen and respond with care and compassion while supporting you to deepen your understanding of yourself and the issues you are facing.
And therapy is not just about alleviating suffering, confusion or pain. The challenges we face, however difficult, can also be tremendous opportunities for growth. Working through your struggles can be the start of a new beginning.
I provide an initial session free of charge, which will give us an opportunity to discuss your needs and expectations, and allow us to decide whether to enter into therapy together. If you would like to enquire about an initial session, or if you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch.
I am a registered psychotherapist (UKCP, MBACP) and have wide-ranging experience working with adults of all ages and backgrounds. I have trained in both integrative psychotherapy and existential psychotherapy at Regent’s University London.
As well as practising privately, I have worked for several years at a charity providing low-cost, long-term therapy to the unemployed and those on low-incomes. Prior to that I also spent several years working within an NHS IAPT counselling service. Across these settings, I have worked on both short-term and long-term bases with a wide array of issues or concerns, including those listed below.
I adhere to the code of ethics of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (for more information, you can visit www.bacp.co.uk). I am also a member of the Society for Existential Analysis.
Everyone’s experience is unique. I see this list as made up of broad descriptive terms, rather than definitive diagnostic labels. If you identify with any of these terms, I am interested in exploring exactly what they mean to you and how they describe your concerns.
