My name is Aldine Iqbal, I am a BACP accredited counsellor/psychotherapist working with adults and teenagers and I enjoy helping people overcome personal and life challenges and make the most of their life.
I have been counselling in the Thames Valley since 2006 through a number of local organizations/charities, offering counselling to adults from many diverse backgrounds, ages and cultures and to young people and their families.
I currently run a private practice where I offer face to face short-term and long-term therapy. Being bilingual, I can provide therapy in French as well as in English. I also have an interest in working therapeutically with groups and in using art/play to encourage self-expression.
As well as private self-referrals, I also receive and accept referrals from EAP agencies and Insurance companies (Currently BUPA and Aviva)
My experience has been with people who suffer from a wide range of difficulties such as anxiety, stress, depression, expressing anger, family conflicts, parenting, divorce, low-self-esteem, bullying, difficult relationships, loneliness, illness, learning difficulties, bereavement, general dissatisfaction with life, adoption, self-harm, addictions, work and cultural issues .
As an accredited member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), I am bound by its ethical framework and professional standards. As a professional practice, my work is supervised by a clinical supervisor and I attend regular professional courses, workshops and group supervision in order to continually support and enhance my practice.
