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.

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

As a black, Muslim woman and having worked with clients from different backgrounds, I know what it can be like to hold visible identities and appreciate how these can be in harmony or conflict with invisible aspects of ourselves, as well as contribute to feelings of difference.
Maybe you feel as though you are negotiating between intersecting parts of yourself such as your mind, body, heart and soul and you’re finding it difficult to find a balance that feels sincere to you. Perhaps this back and forth is affecting how you behave with your family, friends or partner and you’re finding it difficult to cope. You want to live a life where you can integrate more aspects of yourself and feel more whole, to hear and trust yourself, without fear of feeling shame, feeling seen or even feeling truly known by those who matter most to you. I work with a network of qualified and experienced therapists at Therapy & Me.

Are you facing difficulties in life? Our experiences can make us pessimistic, assume the worst, be constantly worried about the past repeating itself and anxious about the future. Sometimes it can feel there’s no way out. It doesn’t have to be this way, you can change the way you think, in turn changing your outcomes, interactions, behaviours, and experiences. Well done for taking the first step to go to therapy, the next step is choosing the right therapist. I can help you explore your thoughts, where they stem from, work with you to build resiliency, healthy habits and help you achieve your therapy goals.

It is often when we feel the most comfortable and at ease, does our authentic-self seep out. This is you unfiltered, unapologetic and unscripted. However, how many times do we allow ourselves to experience this? Not very often, right? Many of us wonder through life wearing a mask, trying to uphold the image we have learnt to create for ourselves - whether it’s the ‘trying-to-keep-it-together parent/partner’, the ‘reliable, always there for you friend’ or the ‘ambitious, life-goals-in-hand determined individual’.

I have helped clients with mild mental health issues such as general stress to higher needs such as schizophrenia and personality disorders. I would say my expertise lies mostly with anxiety, depression and self-esteem issues. I work with the clients goals in mind, at their own pace and ability. No two clients are the same and adjust my skills accordingly. Whether you’re looking for small changes in perspective, understanding or attitude, or you want a deeper more meaningful change in thinking, behaviour and habits I am willing to walk that journey with you.

I am a counsellor who provides a safe, warm and comfortable place for clients to explore what is making them feel unhappy with their lives, and enable them to explore how they can move forward or adjust to what they are experiencing, to be the person they want to be and lead a happy fulfilling life. Our lives can change in a second sometimes this is a good experience, but when it changes and makes us feel unhappy, sometimes alone and overwhelmed with life, we want this to change, however this can be painful and difficult to do alone, I believe counselling gives the client a safe place to explore these feelings.

Taking the first step in seeking therapy can be challenging, stressful, and overwhelming. Well done for looking after your needs. In therapy, we will develop the curiosity and awareness needed to guide you toward the solutions you already have within yourself. You are the expert on your life, and we will collaboratively identify and work through the changes needed to live a life that is meaningful and congruent with your values. The early experiences you had with family, different institutions, culture, and/or religion, will be explored, along with their effects on your life.

My name is Rumena and I am so glad you have taken the first step towards enhancing your wellbeing. Life is full of transitions, hardships, ups and down and there will be times where you feel lost, empty or just stuck in a rut. Sometimes the distress, pain and isolation caused by life’s challenges can feel too unbearable to face alone, or the journey to your destination too long or even unreachable. Therapy is a gift to yourself to help you overcome life's challenges on your journey of self-exploration and healing so you can be your best and most authentic self. I can be your companion on that journey.

I value the individuality of each client I work with and I am skilled in building meaningful therapeutic relationships, a strong foundation from which we work through things together. Research has revealed the significance of the therapeutic relationship in achieving goals for clients. You may be feeling overwhelmed, unfulfilled, angry, depressed, anxious or experiencing low self-esteem. Or perhaps you have experienced a trauma which continues to affect you. These are some of the areas I can support you with. I listen attentively to what you share in your own narrative at your own pace and I support you to express your emotions.

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.
