Signed in as:
The Therapy cup was born as an idea to offer tailor made, individualised psychological therapy with a founding belief that each individual has the innate ability to achieve their full potential. The therapy cup is a perspective that the therapeutic journey is more than just a journey of goals, It is a journey of self discovery and growth. My goal is to make this journey adaptable, collaborative and paced with the client at the centre of this journey.
Hello! My name is Asna which means 'the one to be acknowledged or praised'. Unfortunately, the desire to be praised can also lead one to place our locus of control extrinsically . I must admit that the acceptance of this understanding came to me through the right therapist who led me to a place of inner calm and peace.
I am conscious that choosing the right therapist is a difficult and daunting decision, and possibly a decision that is not taken in haste. I hope that starting from place of authenticity with an intention to work around the person would make my clients less anxious about this journey.
I am registered as a counselling psychologist with the HCPC (UK). I have over 10 years experience of working with individuals offering them evidence based psychological therapies to address anxiety, depression, stress and self confidence. I have a special interest in substance addiction and trauma.

Depression and anxiety are some of the most common, uncomfortable and isolating emotions that one can experience. The changes in mood can have a knock on effect on self perception and self confidence. The aim of my sessions would be centred around drawing and building on the inner strength of individuals so as to make therapy a process that goes beyond 'coping' to a recovery goal that can be sustained.
Most individuals can relate to experiences associated with trauma. Trauma can vary from accidents or near misses, shameful or anxiety provoking experiences, assault, or a painful birthing experience. The intensity and degree to which trauma permeates our lives can vary with individual coping strategies. In therapy I specifically work towards enabling individuals to 'unfreeze' the traumatic experience and guide themselves to their healing.
Addiction is a lonely and complicated journey which can often impact on several dimensions of an individuals life from work and finance to relationships and self image. My experience with addiction varies from individuals who were pre-therapy or in denial to individuals who had been abstinent for years and needed to work on their new identity post addiction.
