Does change feel frightening?
I get it.

Finding a therapist can be a daunting task, particularly finding someone who will understand you. I am an experienced psychotherapist working with individuals and couples.
I trained at Tavistock Relationships, a renowned institution specialising in relationship therapy since 1948. I hold a Postgraduate Diploma and a Masters in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy from Tavistock Relationships as well as a diploma in systemic therapy (intermediate level).
Alongside seeing couples and individuals at Bashirinia Therapy, I work as a visiting clinician at Tavistock Relationships. I am also studying psychoanalytic psychotherapy at Tavistock and Portman (NHS).
As a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists MBACP (Accred) I abide by the BACP code of ethics and professional standards. I hold an enhanced DBS check.
Are you feeling lonely and long for closer connections? Are you suffering from anxiety, nightmares and flashbacks due to past trauma? Do you suffer from low mood or find work stressful? I can help.
Together we think about your past and present to make the changes you wish to see in your future self. You might just want a space to feel safe to explore your feelings and wishes without judgement. Or to find your way of making more meaningful connections in life. Perhaps you feel it is time to invest in your own wellbeing.
Do you constantly argue and find little time to enjoy each other? Is it difficult to speak about sex and desire? Are the children taking up all your energy and you have no time for each other? Do you feel you no longer know each other? Do you want to open up your relationship but struggle with feelings of jealousy? I can help.
Thinking with a third person present is sometimes what makes the difference. Together we will untangle your individual histories and your history together as a couple. We will make connections to the here and now to think about what you wish for the future.
