Ayesha Alleyne is an integrative trainee counsellor and works flexibly with clients to help them understand themselves and their concerns. She believes in the power of talking and reflecting together in the therapeutic space, which constitutes the journey of rediscovering one’s own self. Ayesha understands that her clients’ experiences, challenges, pain and gifts are completely unique to each one of them and that a one size fits all model doesn’t suit everyone. In taking the time and space in a safe environment to identify and understand themes we can develop a positive way forward. Ayesha individually tailors her approach to suit her clients’ needs using a wide range of thinking and techniques.
Ayesha has over 25 years’ experience working in the care sector promoting clients’ rights, advocacy and self-identity, whilst managing a business, staff, and many external factors. Working with clients and staff meant that she dealt with and managed differences, individual rights, conflicts, changes, relationships. For the past 3 years, she has been working with survivors of domestic violence and with young people transitioning to secondary school and are finding it difficult to settle into the new routine system and environment.
Ayesha is currently working towards a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and is a member of the BACP. She works within The Awareness Centre’s NHS counselling service and sees patients in a GP surgery in Lambeth.
