Yasmin believes that individuals that come to counselling do so because they want change; either within themselves or their lives. Through the use of several different approaches, Yasmin provides a safe, supportive and confidential environment that is tailored to the needs of each individual. She provides an empathic and non-judgemental space whereby a client can explore their situation; enabling them to recognise triggers and patterns of relating to themselves and others. This allows a client to reach a deeper level of self-awareness, which will empower them to make positive changes to their lives.
As someone who works with victims of domestic abuse, Yasmin understands that life can sometimes be very distressing and challenging. This can have a powerful and negative effect on an individual’s self-esteem and self-confidence, that can result in unhealthy ways of expressing emotions. This can leave an individual feeling vulnerable, confused and quite frustrated. She also understands that with patience, respect and honest communication, she can support clients in finding new insights and perspectives to their lives; which will bring about a heightened sense of self-awareness, confidence and growth.
Yasmin is registered with the BACP and abides by their ethical framework. She is currently working towards her Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. As a counsellor, she uses an integrative approach when working with individuals which allows her to focus on the therapeutic relationship, in order to understand which approach will be best suited to the client’s needs. She works with The Awareness Centre’s low cost counselling service in Tooting.
