Heart Frame

What is


Salwa translates to solace. This is what I strive to offer my clients.

A space that is fully accepting of them and a stage where they

feel peace and joy in life, regardless of circumstances.

Therapy allows us to become more aligned with our authentic

selves and I want to make that possible for my clients.

My name is Sufia. I am a qualified Person-Centred therapist

who is passionate about supporting clients in their

journey of self-discovery and emotional growth.

With two years of experience working with adults voluntarily

and as a School counsellor with children and young people.

I am now enthused to expand into private practice.

We all have parts of our life - or ourselves we want to improve.

No matter the concern, I help clients to truly understand themselves better to aid in overcoming any presenting issues.

Openness, understanding and being attuned to my client are paramount to my role. Having worked with clients who brought

a range of life problems, losses and mental health

concerns. I offer a safe, non-judgmental, confidential and compassionate space. Allowing clients to identify, explore

and understand the difficulties in their life.

I work with over 16s and can help with any concerns clients have.

I use a range of modalities in my work and tailor therapy to

each client's needs. I am very dedicated to helping clients

overcome barriers or process life issues they face.

I am currently accepting new clients. Feel free to

reach out to arrange a free consultation.

Why choose

Person-centred Counselling?

Although I use a blend of different modalities, the model of my expertise is Person-centred therapy. With so many counselling

models available, finding the type of therapy for you can be difficult.

Here's what Person-centred therapy can offer you:

Non directive

In person-centred counselling, we allow you to take the lead in your journey of healing & self-discovery.

Open ended

This type of therapy has no time limit. How many sessions you have and when you choose to end is up to you.

Self awareness

Offers you a deeper connection, not only with others in your life. Most importantly, with yourself.

Love Belonging

Allowing you to tap into your true potential and become the best version of yourself. Letting go of past pain.
