Dr Naelah Khan Qualified Counsellor And Psychotherapist In London

Naelah Khan

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with over 18 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 practice in Central London. 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.

My Previous Work

Before starting my office in London and my private practice in East Croydon, I worked for Rape Crisis South London for 14 years. As an individual therapist and group facilitator, I offered specialist therapy to trauma survivors. Before this, I spent 8 years as a primary care counsellor with the NHS. During this time, I provided solution-based treatment based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to various patients with complex needs.

I have also worked as a counselling consultant for large employee assistance programs and a domestic violence counsellor for various organisations for many years. I 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.
I have over eighteen years’ experience in short-term Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) orientated counselling and long-term psychotherapy. The areas I specialise in include:

Self-Improvement: Confidence and Self-doubt

Depression: Loneliness, Depressive Episodes and Suicidal Thoughts

Relationships: Family Issues, Separation, Divorce, Romantic and Sexual Problems

Stress: Work-related Stress, Anger, Anxiety and Traumatic Events

Abuse: Domestic Abuse, Childhood Abuse, and Sexual Trauma
