Borbala Shehata (Bee for short) offers a safe, warm and non-judgemental space in which her client is free to question, reflect upon and express their true self. Bee believes that while counselling can help to process confused, difficult or painful feelings, therapy can also support self-discovery and self-development. Hence, her priority is to provide a confidential setting where she invites her client to share what they may not have shared with anyone before. Bee works integratively drawing upon different theories and techniques depending on her client’s needs, as she believes that each individual person is unique with a multitude of distinct experiences and feelings.
Bee’s academic background includes Education, Psychology and Art. She has the experience of growing up in a different culture, language and political system. Bee has been living in the UK for thirty years where she has been involved in supporting families in their educational and personal journey for over a decade. Through her volunteer work and personal experience Bee is aware of multicultural, disability and gender issues that her clients may need help to identify and manage. She is particularly keen on helping her client to develop greater self-awareness and emotional resilience. She also has a special interest in understanding identity and shame, relating to self-harm and in difficulties of maintaining a healthy level of self-esteem.
Bee is an Integrative Counsellor, a Humanist and a student member of the BACP. She offers counselling in English and Hungarian. She works at The Awareness Centre’s low cost counselling service in Clapham. Bee will soon complete her Level 4 Diploma Course in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling.
