Nisa's ethos is a commitment to creating a confidential, safe space, making room for painful feelings where she can be heard and understood. It is by exploring the depths of her clients' thoughts and feelings and allowing them to speak the unspoken, without being judged. While therapeutic approaches vary, the relationship between Nisa and her clients is ultimately the key to therapeutic change. Psychodynamic therapy, as practiced by Nisa, explores the significance of earlier life experiences in shaping psychological development and adult relationships. In their first session, Nisa and her clients will explore the past and look at the present to better understand past events, how they are remembered or re-lived, and what effect they may still be having. This process aims to understand present thoughts and what lies behind them.

What you can expect from your first session:

I have always had a passion to listen to people with respect and empathy, as seeking therapy can be challenging and daunting, and making that first call is never easy. In reality, counselling could make the difference between continuing to struggle or developing inner strength and self-belief to change.
