Hello, I am Sabbir! I work with people who experience a range of difficulties and problems related to emotional and relational wellbeing. I divide my time between private practice and the NHS.
I want to tell you a bit more about myself, as I realise selecting a counsellor or a psychotherapist can be a difficult decision! I feel very privileged to be able to say that I love what I do and always have been. I started working with underprivileged children in World Vision (an international charity) in 1998. Following this, I have had experience working with a wide range of clients from various backgrounds which includes children, young people, young offenders, adults, couples, families, individuals with learning disabilities and neurodevelopmental conditions.
After completing my BA(hons) in Education, I have completed various postgraduate degrees in mental health fields which includes an MA in Psychotherapy. As a psychotherapist I believe I can have all the degrees in mental health world but if I cannot build a trusting relationship with my clients, it has no meaning! Therefore, I always aim at providing a warm, compassionate and non-judgemental space to my clients so that I can adopt a collaborative approach when I work with my clients.
As an experienced Psychotherapist, I also offer a personally tailored approach, drawing upon therapies such as Psychoanalytic/Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Systemic/Family Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. This broad range of training enables me to offer an integrative approach to my clients, and it helps me to tailor my interventions according to the individual clients’ needs.
