Nazanin is an experienced psychotherapist and registered counsellor who is currently completing her doctoral training in counselling psychology. She has experience working in the NHS mental health services and private services. Nazanin has worked with a range of presenting difficulties, including common mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. She also has experience working with relational difficulties, grief, loss, personality disorders, trauma, sexual abuse, schizophrenia and OCD.
Nazanin values how individuals makes sense of their experiences and their lives. She works with a pluralistic approach to meet the client where they are psychologically. This means she is integrating person-centred therapy, psychodynamic theory and Cognitive-behavioural therapy techniques to maximise understanding, compassion and healing of her clients.
Nazanin’s approach ensures her clients feel they are within a safe, trusting, respectful and confidential space where they are able to share their difficulties and reach a shared understanding of what could work for them. She holds a non-judgemental and empathetic stance which acknowledges the importance of context and diversity. Nazanin believes that people are the experts of their own lives, and utilising therapy to overcome life challenges can support them in their unique journey.
Naz loves animals, especially her two dogs, Ryaan and Maya (yes human names). Her secret hobby is to make ‘things’ out of clay and is definitely a foodie!
