Intercultural Counselling

Welcome to Intercultural Counselling with Zekiye

Thank you for visiting my website.

I am Zekiye, a qualified Counsellor and Intercultural Psychotherapist based in Shoreditch and Archway (near Holloway) here to help you to overcome challenges and distress you are facing in your life. I am an English, German and Kurdish (Kurmanji) speaking therapist and work with clients from a wide diverse background.

Your concern will be the focus during the session while other issues can be explored too. I have years of experience working with individuals of all ages to increase wellbeing and mental health.

My expertise is working with clients from cultural and linguistic diverse backgrounds and I offer counselling in German and Kurmanji language ( Kurdish dialect). To find more about the areas I work please visit my page How Can Counselling Help.

Alongside my private practices in Shoreditch and Archway, Central London, I also offer online therapy and continuously work with mental health charities offering individual counselling and general wellbeing services to Black and ethnical marginalised communities.

I have been trained at Nafsiyat Intercultural Therapy Centre where I run ongoing psycho-educational support groups for adults and The Maya Centre. I have an integrative therapy approach embedding therapeutic theories such as person-centred, psychoanalyses, relational and mindfulness which I will utilise depending on your presenting issue to support you. In order to meet your needs, I regularly undertake training regarding safeguarding, data protection, confidentiality and supervision to keep up with the evolving environment.

I am a registered member of the BACP and I adhere to their ethical framework.
