Dr Naelah Khan Qualified Counsellor And Psychotherapist In London

Naelah Khan

I am a qualified Counsellor and Integrative Psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience in long-term psychotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) orientated counselling. After completing my Bachelor of Science in Psychology, I went on to study for a Diploma in Counselling at the Central School of Counselling & Training. I furthered my therapeutic training by pursuing a Masters in Integrative Psychotherapy at the Metanoia Institute.

I counsel individuals and couples from my private practices in Central London and Wimbledon. My main therapeutic goal is to help every client realise their inner potential through an interactive and supportive relationship.

I am a registered, accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I have also received a Certificate in Supervision from the Society of Analytic Psychology (SAP). As a member of the Metanoia Institute, I abide by their code of ethics

Therapeutic Experience

Before starting my office in London and my private practice in Richmond, I worked for Rape Crisis South London. I have been there for 15 years, first as an individual therapist and now primarily as a group facilitator, offering specialist therapy to trauma survivors. I spent 8 years as a primary care counsellor with the NHS. During this time, I provided short term, solution-focussed treatment based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy approaches to various patients with complex needs.

I have worked as a Counselling Consultant for large employee assistance programs and as a Domestic Violence counsellor in various organisations for many years. I have developed an in-depth understanding of abusive relationships, loss, and people's innate desire to survive and rise again

While most sessions will be conducted in English, I am also fluent in Urdu and Hindi and can understand Punjabi.

I believe we all have the ability to be active participants in our own self-healing journey. My aim is to empower my clients by helping them become their best selves in a safe and cooperative environment.

My Philosophy of Psychotherapy and Counselling

My approach to therapy involves developing close, collaborative relationships with my clients. I focus on creating a safe, non-judgmental, confidential space that allows for deep self-exploration. My office in Central London is designed to be an inviting environment. Over the course of many sessions, we work together to understand the underlying causes of your discomfort.

Often, our behaviour, beliefs and insecurities develop early in life. They help us to adapt to experiences our younger selves cannot make sense of. Later life events can modify or confirm these, altering our worldview. Exploring the origin of these beliefs in therapy can be helpful. Through questioning their value in your current life, you can learn to change and overcome them.

What is Integrative Psychotherapy?

Rather than focusing on a single therapeutic method, integrative therapy combines different forms of psychotherapy. This allows therapists to provide clients with tools from a range of different practices. The idea behind integrative therapy is that each person is unique. What works for you might not work for everyone. This is why I believe in developing an individualised therapeutic program.

The aim of my sessions is to help you function at your personal best in all areas of life; mental, physical and psychological.

Whether you’re a qualified therapist or a trainee, clinical supervision is an essential part of working with clients. I offer clinical supervision services from my offices in Central London or online.

Qualifications and Approach

My supervision training is psychoanalytic and my supervisory experience includes working with practitioners from mixed modalities.
