Amina Ispahani offers an empathic space for you to explore what is going on in your life; a space to be vulnerable, to grieve, to explore your anxieties or just to slow down. Some people come to counselling with particular issues, such as depression or anxiety. Others may come to deal with the emotional impact of events from the past or recent life changes that have left them feeling unsettled. Amina believes that therapy can help clients to understand their emotions and experiences more clearly and enable them to learn to cope better. Working collaboratively with clients, she helps them to explore how they relate to themselves, to others and to the wider world. She works alongside her clients to understand themes that arise and areas on which to focus. Amina offers long and short term counselling using an integrated approach, combining a variety of theories and techniques. These include person-centred theory, psychodynamic theory and CBT. She does not believe one single theory holds the truth, and thinks that therapy must be adapted to meet each individual client’s needs.
With a background working within the charity and mental heath sectors, a key component in Amina’s work has always been to build strong relationships and provide emotional and practical support to those who need it. She is passionate about enabling clients to better understand their experiences and reach their potential. Her experience includes working with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationship difficulty and abuse.
Amina is a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. She holds a Master’s in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Roehampton. She is a registered member of the British Association for counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a member of the BACP Private Practice Division.
