A healer does not heal you. A healer is someone who holds space for you while you awaken your inner healer, so that you may heal yourself. - Maryam Hasnaa

I am an experienced Integrative and Trauma Informed Counsellor from London, UK, as well as a qualified Wellbeing Coach, Yoga Teacher and Reiki Practitioner. My style is holistic and intuitive, integrating diverse therapeutic tools and healing modalities to suit the individual needs of my client. I value creating a safe and sacred space for you to connect with your heart, mind and body, so that you can find a sense of inner peace, deeper personal understanding and self-compassion. 

I have specialist training in trauma, therefore recognise that some of my client’s difficulties may have roots in deeply painful, life changing and traumatic experiences. This tailors my approach to gently work with the multi-layered impact of trauma and invite the body in as part of the healing process. I have had the privilege of supporting many different people from all walks of life in a variety of contexts - working in non-profit organisations, my own private practice and whilst volunteering abroad. Here I have welcomed and supported clients with a variety of presenting issues such as coping with present anxieties, facing difficult life changes, relationship conflicts, abuse and the body, as well as gaining practical tools and resources to ease distress and cultivate a more loving relationship with oneself. 

I believe in life our pain needs a witness. We need to be truly seen and for all parts of us to be welcomed without judgement, so that we can understand ourselves more deeply and discover new ways of being. I also believe it is rare that we find a space in our lives where we can explore the things that trouble us most and tend to our emotional wounds with the support of another. Whilst connection may have opened us up to hurt and heartache, it is also the source of transformative healing. My hope is that the collaborative, compassionate and safe relationship offered in therapy will guide you on a journey within and lead you to a more wholesome and happier life.

I am here with you, for you and alongside you.
