Remote therapy from the comfort of your home, and at a time that suits your schedule and needs

I specialise in working with people of mixed culture, suspected or diagnosed neurodivergence, or any other areas relating to identity or belonging including GSRD

I will give you a safe and confidential space, free of judgement, to explore whatever is difficult in your life, and to help you identify what you might want to change

Types of counselling available

Remote or online counselling is a way for you to engage in counselling without the demands or stress of travel, and can be particularly helpful to those who experience sensory overload or have a demanding personal schedule.

I have full training and extensive experience in video, audio, and SMS therapy, as well as through email for those who may prefer no interruptions, a much slower pace, or who struggle with regular time commitments.

All sessions are assumed to be 50 minutes unless you have requested 90-minute sessions. 

About me

Nina Shah Gestalt Counsellor Dip. MBACP (Accred.), Reiki Master Level 3

I am a British therapist who recently relocated to Stockholm, and I continue to work remotely with clients in the UK. 

My cultural backdrop is British Croatian by birth, and British Pakistani by marriage. I specialise in issues relating to feeling different for whatever reason, including mixed culture life and neurodiversity.

I am a UK-accredited Gestalt therapist with over 25 years of experience in the fields of mental health and psychology.

🌟 Have you ever done any dream analysis? 

In Gestalt we use a really powerful and useful technique, which I demonstrate in this video with one of my own, very short and simple, dreams. 

💡 This is something you can do yourself at home, to increase your awareness of your subconscious, of parts of you that are currently unheard or unseen. 
💡 It can also help to resolve or understand currently unresolved feelings that maybe lead to anxiety or anger outbursts that feel 'more than' whatever you've reacted to.

The story of the Washing Machine that Peed. Thoughts around what might make a 'lucky' versus an 'unlucky' person, or how to practice gratitude and the consequences of doing so.

I would like to highlight that our cleaner is thoroughly lovely, and very good at her job. I do not blame her at all for this incident. I wholly recognise that a silly drain pipe that has to be weighed down with a broom and a hammer, that cannot be knocked even a centimetre, to stop it leaking all over the floor, is a bad idea on our part - one of many little jobs we inherited with the house that we've not yet got round to. 

The silver lining of this, is that my husband has now raised this job to the top of his priority list this weekend, to stop it happening again - this is the third time this has happened, and the first and biggest time was our fault, and resulted in a very mouldy laundry room, so it's about time!

In this video I look at judgements, stereotypes and myths around socialising and social behaviour, and what is considered healthy or 'normal' versus some other very different, yet still healthy and fulfilling, ways of socialising.

I also touch upon changes in socialising behaviour that may occur when someone is feeling burned out or overwhelmed, and how these should not necessarily be seen as signs of someone spiralling, but as coping strategies that some people use to prevent spiralling. Within this, I talk about ways you can support someone with their socialising behaviour or social life, when they are struggling.
