Neema is a London-based, integrative therapist who approaches her client relationships through a compassionate and non-judgemental lens. Neema has worked therapeutically for over 10 years in a variety of settings: schools, charities for social change, the NHS, and her private practice; helping individuals safely explore, experience and understand their true, deep-rooted feelings in order to resolve them. Neema also works with couples to facilitate an exploration and progression of their relationship; regardless of age, race, religious beliefs, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
Before starting her therapy training in 2011, Neema worked at MTV Networks UK, in Talent and Artist Relations. Her seven years in this unique environment; working directly with artists, record labels, agents and promoters on location and in studio, enables Neema to have an informed sense of the increasing challenges and pressures encountered by artists, creatives, musicians, actors and performers, and those who work with them.
Neema’s therapeutic private practice is rich and diverse, and this is reflected in the range of clients she works with. Neema is particularly excited to work with BIPOC and has established success in exploring the issues raised around their migration stories, identity and heritage, gender bias, experiences of systemic racism, sexual abuse and substance addiction. Neema often holds space for men to sensitively think about the challenges around masculinity, social and cultural expectation and the subsequent difficulties in processing anxiety, anger and sadness. Neema also has extensive experience in working with women who have been affected by early experiences of sexual abuse and childhood trauma and those who suffer with imposter syndrome or perfectionism. Neema also has experience of working with neurodiversity and supports clients who are currently seeking a clinical diagnosis or learning more about living with one.
Neema is a registered member of the BACP and also the BAATN (Black and Asian Therapists Network) and works with the utmost confidentiality and discretion. Neema chooses not to have a social media presence, in order to hold privacy for herself and therefore her clients.
