Farhan Ghafoor

Primary Location

For the last 5 years I have developed my counselling skills and worked with adults children and young people in therapeutic relationships at a number of schools and community based counselling agencies and in my own private practice. I regularly attend supervision sessions, which enables me to explore my client work and get feedback, which helps me to work through any difficult issues that I need to explore further. I work with clients that are experiencing various difficulties including anger, anxiety, bullying, self harm, depression, domestic violence, obesity, alcohol abuse, bereavement, sexual abuse. I use a number of different models of therapy that have helped adults and young people to deal with these issues including CBT, Psychodynamic, Person Centred, Family Therapy, Art and Solution Focussed. At the various schools I  have worked at has enabled me to learn how to work within the parameters of a school including liaising with teachers and support staff. I am also use to following the procedures and guidelines in a school environment and how to maintain confidentiality at all times unless I suspect a safeguarding issue.

Date Qualified
Training, Qualifications and Experience

I have a Level 5 Diploma in Counselling Studies and have been qualified since 2015. As a  Counsellor I have worked in a number of agencies and have worked with adults and young people supporting them with one to one sessions on a number of different issues including anxiety, depression, bipolar, abuse, domestic violence and family relationship issues. I would initially carried out assessments with every client to establish the issues presented to me and then look how I could support each client and at times this would also mean carrying our risk assessments for clients that were displaying potential safeguarding risks. I also regularly maintain confidential note taking and store this information securely and carry out reviews and evaluations as part of the therapeutic alliance so that I am working effectively and safely. I attend regular clinical supervision sessions so that I am using the space to explore all of my client work and also go through any issues I am finding difficult to process. I have sessions over 4 years experience of offering online sessions using Skype and Vsee and also telephone therapy.
