What is Person-Centered Therapy?

Person-Centered Therapy, also sometimes called Client Centered-Therapy, is a Humanistic therapeutic model devised by Carl Rogers.

When a client comes to counselling feeling vulnerable or anxious the therapist's role is to offer a genuine relationship, unconditional acceptance and empathy. If the client perceives the therapists offering unconditional acceptance and empathy, then there will be positive change in the client. The therapist is 'non-directive', and the client leads in the session.

Why choose me as your therapist?

I'm an experienced BACP registered therapist, who will offer you unconditional acceptance, warmth, and a genuine non-judgmental relationship in our sessions together. I won't tell you what to do and you will choose what you want to talk about.

I am trained to offer therapy face to face, online and on the telephone. I am committed to my personal and professional development, attending regular clinical supervision and also Continuing Professional Development training. I follow the BACP code of Ethics, which you can downloaded here. My BACP Registered Member number: 379105.

Will our work together be confidential?

Yes, our work is confidential. Please click here for my Privacy Notice which goes into detail regarding my legal and ethical requirements of practice regarding data protection and information storage and usage.

When can we meet?

I currently offer clients sessions Monday to Friday, with daytime and evening slots available. All sessions are 50 minutes long.

How often do we meet? 

A lot of clients find it most helpful to meet weekly. However, you may be in a period of your life where you are experiencing distress, and may want to meet more than once weekly. We will discuss how often you would like to meet in our first session. You are free at any point to change the frequency of our sessions.

How many sessions will I need?
This is unique to every client. Sometimes clients may only need a few sessions to feel some relief, and end our work there. Others may continue to choose to work together for months, or years. I will offer regular reviews to ask you if you feel that our work together is useful, and if you would like to continue.

What will happen in our first session?

  • We will meet on Zoom/telephone at a prearranged time for 50 minutes

  • If meeting on Zoom please wear headphones (this is to best manage audio)

  • I will be in a confidential space and request that you are to

  • You will have space tell me what has brought you to counselling and ask any questions you may have

  • I will offer you empathy, unconditional acceptance, warmth, and a genuine non-judgmental relationship

After our first session you will hopefully have a sense of how I work. We will decide if we feel we are a good ‘fit’ together and want to continue working. I will not pressure you to commit to further sessions.


All therapeutic sessions £70.

My fees are payable via BACS transfer before our sessions together.

I understand that in life there can be moments that arise, which we cannot predict, and so I offer up to 72 hour cancellation without charge. After this time period fees are required to be paid in full.

Client testimonials and feedback
“[Noosh is] super lovely, professional, and friendly. It was a friendly environment that felt free of judgement.”
"It's rare you will find a guy like Noosh. When I first reached out to him I felt as if my life was going in a very negative direction and started counselling as a last resort (despite being a huge counselling skeptic). However, following my last session I have a massive appreciation for counselling and for the first time in a long time I am very excited to start the next step of my life. I highly recommend Noosh to anyone struggling or facing difficulties."
"I would definitely recommend Noosh to anyone who needs an empathetic, accepting space to process life events and feelings."
“Noosh has helped me so much over the last years. Before this I had had several difficult ... experiences with counselling and I know first hand what a challenge it can be to find someone who can professionally hold non-judgemental space while also bringing care to the work. Noosh is an excellent counsellor and a caring listener. I've never once felt judged during a session and I've had the rare experience of feeling free to express myself. I will always be grateful for Noosh's work and care - thank you!”

“When I first came to Noosh for counselling I didn’t really know who I was and didn’t know how to cope with a lot of the issues and trials I was facing.

I will forever be thankful.”

Noosh is always so kind and supportive, and really helped me sort through all my jumbled thoughts and feelings. I feel so much more able to identify, manage and accent my emotions now! :)"
Why did you choose to work with Noosh?
"Having a space where I felt comfortable crying, where I knew I could just spill out my thoughts. I think it took me a few sessions to sort of remember how to therapy? It was really helpful to be reminded by Noosh that my time was for me and I could say what I wanted. I also loved knowing I never had to quantify / qualify my .. experiences, that they'd be both understood
and accepted."
"The experience was great!"
