Journeying together for your choices, freedom and self-empowerment

BA (hons), MA, AET, PG Dip Counselling & Psychotherapy (Distinction), MBACP



Welcome to my website! My name is Ali (she/her) and I am here to provide you with a warm, safe, and confidential space where you can freely explore, understand, and resolve difficult feelings, without feeling judged or criticised. My goal is to work alongside you, respecting your choices, while offering empathy, authenticity, and effective support. 

As an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist, living in Sheffield, I embrace the principles of Person-Centred Therapy as the foundation of my practice. However, I go beyond that by incorporating other relevant theoretical approaches that suit your unique needs and circumstances...


My practice welcomes everybody, and I have a particular interest in working with disabled people and carers. In addition I'm also passionate about working with individuals from diverse, minority, oppressed, or marginalised communities and groups. I am committed to providing inclusive and accessible counselling and psychotherapy services, tailored to meet the specific needs of each person. Whether you are non-disabled, navigating physical disabilities, neurodiversity, or any other aspect of life, I am here to offer an inclusive and supportive therapeutic process. While I may not know everything, I am dedicated to being an ally, and all are valued and welcomed here. 

I understand firsthand the challenges of finding the right therapist and starting therapy. That's why I aim to provide you with the information I wish I had known when I was searching for my own therapist years ago. I want you to feel informed and comfortable with your decision to work with me.


Please take your time to explore my website, and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if you'd like to arrange a complimentary 20-miniute introductory session. Feel free to reach out using the Contact form.

‘When I have been listened to and when I have been heard, I am able to re-perceive my world in a new way and to go on. …I have deeply appreciated the times that I have experienced this sensitive, empathic, concentrated listening.’ 

Carl Rogers the founder of Person-Centred therapy
