Nisha holds a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Nottingham and a Diploma in Clinical Supervision from the Centre for Personal and Professional Development (CPPD).
Having worked at schools across the UK and completing training conducted by Place2Be, Nisha moved back to Pakistan in 2015 with the aim of bringing counselling to schools in Karachi. She has also set up her own private practice, integrating creative methods such as Sandplay, in her work with adults and young people alike.
Nisha is a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and is currently working towards attaining Accredited status. She adheres to the professional body’s Ethical Framework and Professional Conduct Procedure in all her work with clients, ensuring a high standard of professional practice.
While Nisha’s counselling orientation is Humanistic and is based on experiencing relational depth in the therapy, her style is eclectic, drawing from the body of theoretical knowledge she has obtained over the course of her training and practice. As her practice has evolved, Nisha’s interest has shifted towards offering her clients trauma informed care. She is a certified provider of Tension, Trauma and Stress Releasing Exercises (TRE), which is a technique that releases deeply imbedded muscular patterns of tension, calming down the nervous system and encouraging the body to return to a state of balance. Additionally, she is training to offer her clients Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR); an innovative psychotherapy that uses bilateral eye movements to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories.
Nisha’s interventions have been used to aid in the management of low self-esteem, complex trauma, shock trauma, bereavement, anxiety, depression, anger and familial and relationship concerns.
