TAHIRAH YASIN KHAN
Counsellor and Psychotherapist in Gloucestershire and London
I am a fully qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist, registered member of the
British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and a member of the Muslim Counsellors and Psychotherapists Network (MCAPN). I adhere to the ethical framework of the BACP by holding full professional insurance, an enhanced DBS clearance and being committed to continual professional development and regular supervision.
Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, I have a background of working as a support worker, working with asylum seekers, refugees and victims of sexual and domestic abuse.
I have a FdA in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling and Psychotherapy, a BA (Hons) in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling and in order to enhance myself I am presently studying an MSc in Neuroscience.
I am committed to offering a service which is welcoming to all backgrounds, races, religions and cultures in a supportive, inclusive and non-discriminatory manner. I am especially interested in spiritual issues, how we attach meaning to our lives and how our beliefs and faith impact the issues we face.
I can offer counselling sessions in English or Urdu, giving you the flexibility to choose the language you are most comfortable with expressing yourself.
COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY SESSIONS
Most of my work is long-term and open-ended. This means that therapy will progress for as long as we both feel necessary for you.
From my experience, it takes time and willingness to get to the core of the issue.
Therapy is a process leading to real change and deep transformation
I work with empathy, unconditional positive regard and genuineness as the foundation of my therapy. My work is grounded in humanistic and integrative theories and I use a holistic and creative approach.
My belief is that we all have the resources within us to realise our own potential. The way I work is unique to each client and tailored to your individual needs.
