Remote therapy and consultancy from the convenience of your home or office

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

Counselling & consultancy sessions available to help support you, or your neurodivergent child or student

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 also offer consultancy sessions to parents and educators, to help you support your neurodivergent children and students.

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.

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.Β 

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, neurodivergence (ADHD, autism etc), the twin relationship, and gender, sexual and relationship diversity.

I am a UK-accredited Gestalt therapist with 30 years of experience in the fields of mental health and psychology.

Reminds me how insignificant we are, in the bigger picture. How our reality is just one of billions. 

I remember the moment I first experienced this intense knowledge of my own insignificance, around age 16, looking up at the clear night sky one summer in Croatia, so many stars, the potential for so many worlds. 

Then, as now, I find the knowledge and the feeling very comforting, similar to how I experience the knowledge of transience and impermanence.

Really tough parenting day yesterday, then mid afternoon we found a bundle of four leaf clovers and one five. My son found some a year ago, down the road. First I'd seen in a whole life of searching. I'm going to take this as a positive sign for the future, because that's what I do to lift myself!

None of us is perfect. If you parent in a way that makes your kid think you are, it may be too much for them to live up to.

I have always seen anger as the emotion of change, bringing enough energy to facilitate and bring about change. 

Now I see that it perhaps also enables creative problem solving in order to bring about change. 

How wonderful.

First strawberry harvest!

The simple pleasures and gentle, longer lasting dopamine hits of being outdoors, digging with my hands in soil, breathing in the sunshine, seeing the warmth, and finally, the joy of achievement, where I can finally eat something delicious, the product of my flow-time.
