Hi, my name is Sultana Begum. I am of Bengali origin. Having been raised and lived for over forty years in London, I am a Londoner. I am also British, Asian , a European Muslim, a female, a wife, a daughter, a mother, a sister, an aunt, a friend, a colleague, a neighbour and as well as a counsellor, therapist and many more.... I believe who we are and who we think or believe we should be are not one and the same. I believe in today’s complex world of information overload, we can have many identities and that's okay. However, this can sometimes be overwhelming or confusing, leading to frustration and difficulties in living life full

Hi Thank you for looking at my profile, I am an intercultural second generational Muslim Psychotherpist and have experience of working with Muslim and South Asian clients. Being of South Asian descent doesn’t make us all the same but there is often a shared experience of what is expected of us from our families, religion and communities. People from all cultures experience anxiety, depression or worries, but how these are perceived can vary from culture to culture and the type of help needed can differ. Cross-cultural psychotherapy is particularly sensitive to the importance of race, ethnicity, religion and culture.

Stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem concerns, and life transitions are all part of the journey that we go on and are very challenging to face. A safe, non-judgemental, and confidential space is essential for you to explore, discuss and discover yourself, this is what I offer. I believe that therapy is not about me telling you what to do, it is about nurturing your growth to help you discover solutions. My goal is to help you create a positive change in your life through therapy. Through our sessions together, we will develop a set of skills to address challenges and concerns that will help you live in the present moment

Hello my name is Naina, welcome to my profile. Making the decision to begin counselling can be a difficult and daunting one. Counselling can help us to reconnect to ourselves by exploring our narratives, gaining a deeper understanding of who we are, and to develop a better relationship with ourselves and others. I feel forming a therapeutic relationship with my clients is key for our work together. We can work together to empower you to find your own answers and find the happiness that you are searching for.

As we are thrown into the thick of life, it is our response to these circumstances which reveal who we are and where we may want to go. As life is anything but a linear process - we may often stumble or get stuck along the way. We may even describe the stumbling blocks as anxiety, depression, numbness or even shame. Some of our work could involve examining those stumbling blocks and challenging your ideas, choices and reasoning processes. I encourage you to remain open to all aspects and stimulate you to consider ones often overlooked.

I am an integrative therapist who values the inner strength it takes one to be vulnerable whilst sharing their lived experience. My focus is to try and walk in one's world. Therefore I value every person I speak to with respect for who they are and how they have got to where they are. I refrain from judging you and provide a source of complete acceptance and support. You will lead the conversation, and I will not attempt to steer you in any direction; instead, I offer a safe, confidential, non-judgemental environment for you to explore and talk about any difficulties you may be experiencing.

Young people: Are you experiencing feelings of lowness, anxiety, worry but often not knowing or understanding where those feelings are coming from. Being able to think/talk about these difficulties in a safe confidential space can be helpful. Alternatively it may be an issue that is known/ difficult experiences in your life in the present or past. Sometimes we can be stuck with moving past these issues or difficulties. Counselling can help you move forward in thinking about useful strategies to help.

As an Asian women myself I understand the cultural challenges of living in a Western culture.
We all need help from time to time, and you shouldn't be embarrassed for asking for it. I am a down to earth and compassionate person, who understands what it is like to need a boost. In my years I have truly heard it all, and my biggest goal is to empower rather than judge my clients. One of my favourite quotes comes from Marisa Peer who explains that “to be happy you have to make peace with your past, love the present and feel so excited about the future”. No problem is too big to solve and I have witnessed counselling change the lives of so many people and I know I can help change yours too.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Ilford?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Ilford specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
