Online counselling for adult individuals

Welcome to Space of Hope Counselling

I provide a safe, confidential space for you to feel heard, without judgement

Sometimes, it can feel like we don't have anyone to turn to, or that the people we do turn to can meet us with judgement. This can lead us to bottling up our difficulties, making them feel worse over time.

It takes a lot of bravery to seek help, and so whatever you're going through right now deciding to seek support is a courageous step to take.

My name is Yasin and I'm a qualified, BACP registered counsellor. I provide online counselling for *adult individuals living in the UK. I aim to provide you with a safe, confidential space to explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences, without judgement.

I first received counselling as a young person in school. I then returned to counselling later on in life when I was struggling with my mental health. Counselling was a really powerful experience for me and this is why I felt so drawn to becoming a counsellor myself.

*I am only able to work with people over 18. I'm not able to provide counselling for children or couples.

How can counselling help you?

You might feel a bit nervous or anxious about starting counselling and reaching out to someone you've never met. This is completely normal and something that most people feel prior to starting counselling.

What counselling does provide you with is a safe, confidential space to explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and experiences. So, whether it's making certain changes in your life, finding ways of coping, trying to understand the root of your struggles or wanting to be listened to counselling can be really helpful.

In my personal experience, people that feel listened to, understood, and allowed to be themselves can find relief from their pain, witness personal growth and make real positive changes in their lives.

How do I work?

My approach is integrative which is a very common approach to counselling and psychotherapy. It means I adapt how I work to suit you and your specific needs. My two core approaches are person-centred counselling and psychodynamic counselling.

Person-centred counselling follows your lead and empowers you to choose the direction and pace we work within. I will be a compassionate facilitator, listening to you without judgement or interruption. At your pace, we'll unpack what's been causing you distress, turmoil or perhaps pain and explore what can help you to find relief or cope better.

Psychodynamic counselling explores how your current struggles may be shaped by your early-life experiences and things that you might not be aware of. This can help you to understand what you’re feeling now, why you might react in certain ways, how this may be impacting your relationships. By becoming more aware, it's very common that people begin to think, feel and behave in ways that feel more true to them.

Whatever you're going through, your feelings are valid

We can all find ourselves struggling at times and it may not always be clear what's causing us to feel the way we do. It can be something that we're struggling with right now, like a relationship breakdown or we be struggling and struggling to pinpoint why.

The below list outlines some of the emotions or difficult experiences that people who start counselling often come with. These are also the areas that I have particular experience in working with.

However, this is not an exhaustive list and there are many other reasons people choose to start counselling.

  • A period of feeling anxiety or panic
  • Feeling low or depressed
  • Stressed or overwhelmed
  • Facing a big change (career, parenthood)
  • Your childhood and early life experiences
  • Your cultural identity
  • Your sexuality
  • Problems in your relationship
  • Feeling lonely or isolated
  • Low self-esteem
  • Conflict with parents
  • Difficulties at work

Our sessions

Sessions will last 50 minutes, usually taking place weekly and are held online via Zoom.

I also offer sessions on the phone if this is something you'd prefer.

My fees

The cost is £50 per session. I do also offer a sliding scale fee system for people on low incomes e.g. people on benefits. This is something I'd be happy to discuss in the initial consultation.

Free initial consultation

It's really important that you feel we'd be a good fit. I offer a completely free and confidential 20 minute video or phone consultation.

This is an informal conversation where we can discuss what's brought you here and establish if I'd be a suitable fit for what you're looking for.
