Maryam Ali works with an integrative approach which has the potential to vary according to what is suitable and effective at the time when working with clients, offering a collaborative way of working. This can provide the space for in depth exploration in an empathetic, safe, non-judgmental environment which are important elements in the therapeutic relationship. Maryam works with clients based on their individual needs, which she understands can differ for each person; this can help to draw out the inner potential of each client. She is also able to work with culturally sensitive and diverse issues which may be of importance for some clients.
Having gained experience working on a helpline, Maryam has been presented with an array of issues ranging from addictions to general anxiety and depression.She has seen how clients have often felt powerless and debilitated through their challenges. Despite this she has seen how most people have the capacity and strength to harness their inner potential in order to regain control and strength over their lives. This has been inspiring and has led Maryam to pursue a career as a Counsellor.
Maryam is a trainee integrative counsellor and is a student member of the BACP. She works within The Awareness Centre’s low cost counselling service in Tooting. Maryam is currently working towards a Master’s degree in integrative counselling and coaching.
