I specialise in bereavement and loss, stress, anxiety, depression, lack of confidence, low self-esteem, relationships, couples counselling, work stress, phobias and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). I also work extensively within an EAP setting (employee assistance programme).

I use a Humanistic approach to counselling and psychotherapy, specifically working with Transactional Analysis.

Transactional Analysis (TA) is an integrative approach, built on the premise that we are all born OK and it is our environment that shapes us, we have the capacity to think and therefore to change if we want to.

TA was founded by Eric Berne, a renowned psychiatrist, whose aim was to make the language of psychotherapy easily accessible to the client, creating an equal relationship between the client and the practitioner.

My aim is to use TA where appropriate to support clients to better understand themselves and others.

I have a Diploma in TA Counselling and a Master's Degree in TA Psychotherapy from Metanoia Institute (Middlesex University. I am an accredited member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and registered with UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy.

I have experience in working with individuals on a variety of issues, couples work, and as a group facilitator supporting people with phobias and OCD.

I run my own practice (Roohaz Counselling and Psychotherapy) in Twickenham, Richmond and central London. I offer individual and couples counselling. Group therapy can be arranged according to demand.

Before entering the counselling and psychotherapy world, I had up to 25 years’ professional experience in a corporate environment, which allowed me to understand the pressures and advantages of working in various commercial organisations.
