Moeez Siddiqui

Integrative Counsellor

Hi, I'm Moeez, a qualified integrative therapist. In this fast-moving, uncertain, and precarious time period, there can be many responsibilities and problems we have to shoulder. Are you suffering from stress? Always worrying? Has your mood been consistently low recently? Not sure what your purpose in life is? Are there difficulties in your relationships? Have you not been able to process past trauma? Experiencing discrimination? Struggling with identity? Do you want clarity and awareness in how to get better?

I have extensive therapeutic experience in issues related to depression, low self-esteem, trauma, abuse, relationships (divorce, cheating, ruptures), migration and diaspora, body dysmorphia, miscarriage/loss of a child, sexuality, gender, anxiety disorders, PTSD, personality disorder, psychosis, race, and religion. I tend to focus on how the past connects with the present, and build more awareness about yourself. I like to go at the pace of the client, whether it's deep exploration or a solution focus. I most commonly work from a relational perspective, and build a level of trust through the use of person-centred therapy, delve into the deeper unconscious through psychodynamic concepts, and use CBT when exploring emotions, thoughts, and experiences. I like to use Transactional Analysis to explore relationship dynamics (family, friends, work).

I also have 8 years of working in the mental health field in various sectors such as the NHS and community mental health teams, using a lot of CBT techniques to help people with personality disorders, depression, anxiety, OCD, and phobias. I have specialised experience with personality disorder, having run group therapy programs (STEPPS, SCM) and one-to-one support.

Having lived in various countries from (UK, USA, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia) and being part of the Pakistani diaspora, it’s given me a unique perspective on various issues. I work in a relational and intersectional manner, taking into account people’s psychological, physical, socioeconomic, cultural, and political conditions. Our lives are more complex than just the issues we come into therapy with.

I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I work within their Ethical Framework. I am bound by their code of conduct and ethics to assure that your therapy will be practiced to a highly professional standard. I also continue professional development within the field of psychotherapeutic work, expanding my skills by regularly attending workshops, conferences and seminars.

I provide individual and couples counselling, online and in-person. I see clients in-person on from Monday to Friday, and Saturday morning.

I offer a FREE initial telephone/video consultation for 15-30 minutes. You can email me or book an intro call as seen above. If you send me an email, please let me know your availability for a phone call. Looking forward to speak to you and help you on the journey towards healing.
