"The Cube is an imitation of life itself - or even an improvement on life" Erno Rubik
Often, we may feel that things are falling apart and the desire to persevere may be a distant memory. Our past experiences can shape us and consequently, we develop coping strategies that may not work for us anymore. For those who feel this way, it is important to know that you never have to go through these feelings alone; therapy can help towards restoring order. Just like the cube puzzle, it may feel like things are getting more chaotic before they get better, but there is always hope that things can improve.
The ‘Counselling Cube’ is a concept created by me, Husna Rahman. I like to work in innovative ways and think outside the box. I am keen to get to know my clients well and work with them in a way they will feel comfortable with.
Seeking therapy can be a daunting experience and so it is my mission to ensure that I provide you with a safe, empathic, non-judgmental space in which to explore your feelings and have a sense of containment.
It is important that you feel comfortable to discuss the past and the present so that moving forward, we can find ways for you to feel confident in managing difficult situations that you may encounter. If you feel that you are ready to take a chance to make that change, then get in touch and we can talk through things together.
Hello, I'm Husna
I am a fully qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in East London, and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I adhere to ethical and professional conduct when working with clients and this is guided by the BACP framework.
My way of working is integrative, which means I use various methods and theories from a range of modalities. I feel that there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to therapy and that each client must be worked with in an individual manner.
I believe that every person inherently possesses unique resources for personal growth and I am here to support you on your journey towards this. Through collaborative work, we can explore different strategies to facilitate you achieving your desired outcome.
The therapeutic relationship is paramount in working through difficulties faced by an individual and so I would recommend booking in an initial chat to see if I am the right fit for you. This will also enable us to look at which type of therapy may be beneficial, too.
Training and Qualifications
PGDip, Counselling and Psychotherapy
University of East London
Level 3 Certificate,
At the initial assessment, we will discuss what has brought you to therapy and what your desired outcome is. It will also give you an opportunity to see if you would like to continue to work with me. Where possible, referrals can be made, if you feel that I am not the right therapist for you.
Single Session Therapy
This session lasts for 80 minutes and includes a 20 minute follow up chat four weeks post-session. During this session, our focus will be to identify the strengths and skills that you possess and how these can be used to help you moving forward.
Together, we will look at ways in which you can build self-support so that you are able to identify patterns and tackle issues as and when they may arise.
Sessions will take place on the same day and time each week. A contract will be issued before the first session (this will also contain information about the cancellation policy, which we will have a chat about before we begin). We will also create a bespoke therapeutic plan together which will focus on what you want and need from the sessions.
