About this Service

Rafia Begum, MBACP

Life can get overwhelming at times. Unresolved trauma and untouched issues can appear and affect your life without you realising. During times like these, you need a safe and non-judgmental space.

• I offer a non-judgmental, empathic and safe space

• I am a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist offering counselling and psychotherapy

• I offer open-ended work on a one-to-one basis; for short and long term therapy

• I work as a person-centred counsellor and use an integrative approach in order to be able to facilitate my client’s in the best and most effective way possible.

I feel passionate about breaking down stigmas surrounding mental health. I believe in encouraging and facilitating a state of wellbeing, so that every individual is able to nurture their own potential and have the willpower to be the most authentic version of themselves. I feel it is important to address the negativity surrounding mental health within the BAME community and promoting healthy discussion to bring about change.
