There maybe times in our life where we need a safe, supportive environment so that we can explore our troubles and feelings without fear of judgement. Having a listening ear and being truly heard can really help us to get a better understanding of these troubles and aid us to develop ways to move forward in our lives. Sometimes having a confidential space to do this with someone who is independent of the situation is all that's needed. It takes courage to talk to a Counsellor but the rewards are usually worth it. www.htcounselling.co.uk

I believe everyone has the right to feel safe, heard and respected in life and in the therapy room. Knowing what is best for our mental health is often overwhelming, I am here to help you find a way through what can seem an insurmountable task. Many reasons make people want to see a counsellor. Sometimes this might be something concrete; the loss of a loved one or having endured a time of great personal stress. Your concerns might be more vague; a sense of disconnection or unhappiness in life with no easily recognisable cause.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Clinical evidence based Mindfulness, aimed at effective treatment of most psychological issues. I am an Expert Witness and do court work (especially trauma).I aim to get desired results quickly (I am not a fan of long term therapy, but do offer long term support, if needed). I believe action oriented client, centered therapy works better than just "active listening, "which clients often find frustrating. Empowering people to help themselves is useful and reduces realiance on a therapist, I aim to make myself redundant and not needed by a client. Remote therapy works really well in my experience.

Speaking with someone for the first time about personal issues or trauma can feel really daunting. It is important to feel safe and not judged when talking about difficult things, and my aim is for us to develop a relationship where you can explore whatever it is that you need to. There is not an exhaustive list of the reasons for coming to counselling initially but one thing is sure and that is it begins with building trust and beginning to speak openly.

It starts with a hello...but I know that starting the conversation can be difficult at times. Life brings its share of challenges but no one needs to suffer in isolation. I am here to walk this journey with you, so you can become a better version of yourself. I am a firm believer that not everyone experiences even the same issue the same way. Therefore, being flexible in dealing with the differing needs of clients, is a necessary skill I have honed over the years.

Maybe you're a friend or family member of someone suffering from addiction and would like support and guidance on how best to help your loved one? Maybe you've been to treatment for your addiction and wish to continue the work you have started, or you are in long-term recovery and need the support of someone who understands your past. Perhaps you need a therapist that specialises in LGBTQ+ issues.

I first discovered counselling when I was referred to one many years ago. The experience for me was life changing. It was one of my first relationships that valued my choices and it and me gave me the tools, knowledge and courage to make changes in my life. I believe no one will know the truth about themselves until you find it by yourself. In doing so will give you greater value and empower you to make your own choices.

Is there something going on for you right now that you are not sure how to explain? Feel a sense of being lost, worried, sad, scared, angry or anxious but not sure why? Life can be difficult and counselling can help you explore what is going on. I believe we can work together and start to unpick issues and begin to understand them, improve communication, increase self-confidence and feel more empowered. I work with adults, couples and young people and love seeing a person walk away more relaxed, and in a better place. Counselling is all about you and finding your own answers.

Life can be rough. Sometimes we get to a point where we feel stuck, unable to see a way through. There are infinite reasons of what may bring you to therapy; relationship breakdown, bereavement, a sense of loss of control, addiction, bullying.. We cannot change the past. But we can heal from the pain, towards a life worth living of your choice. Therapy is a collaborative process. I will work with you as the expert on your own life; offering support, challenge, well-being practices, empathy and compassion along with the space to explore your own experience, which is so rarely possible in our daily lives.

You may have suffered with mental ill-health on and off for years, or it may be something you’ve noticed recently. To benefit from talking therapy, it’s less about what the issue is, or the severity of your mental/emotional wellbeing but more about your readiness to talk and be open to learning about yourself. It can be an emotionally draining process as you face up to difficulties you’ve experienced during your life. My aim is to provide the support you need throughout the process and to fully accept you for who you are. Even if you find it difficult to accept parts of yourself. Clients often leave sessions feeling much lighter.

Dear friend, Are you fed up with feeling like something in your life isn’t working? Do you want to feel like yourself again? Are your days filled by constant stress, endless pressures and never ending to-do lists? Do you spend a lot of time worrying about what other people think and how to make them happy? Are you running yourself ragged while trying to keep your head above water? And even as you try to fall asleep at night… Do you replay everything you could have done differently? Do you think about all the things you HAVE to do tomorrow? Do you question whether all you’re doing is even enough?

Welcome,     I'm Rizwan. I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist here to help you.   I believe the path to positive change is easier when you have the right support in place. That’s why I take a person-centred approach to therapy, where your voice and concerns are the focus of the therapy. This may seem obvious at first look, but it means that the support you receive will be tailored for your needs. It also means is that your life will be at the forefront of all our conversations, because when you have someone working with you, making sure your voice is heard and your needs are met, life is much is easier to live.
