Who I Am


My name is Nahid Aghili and I am a qualified psychotherapist and counsellor. I am of Persian background and lived in Florence for many years before moving to London in the 1980's.  English and Farsi are my first languages but I am also fluent in Italian. 


I am a qualified councillor and psychotherapist registered with the BACP and obtained my Diploma in transactional analysis counselling and psychotherapy from the Metanoia Institute in London in 2010. I have also completed two years of training in MSc TA Counselling and Psychotherapy at the Metanoia Institute.  I am currently working with 'Women and Health' - a charity organisation providing psychological support  and complimentary healthcare to women referred by the NHS in Camden.  Prior to this, I had been working with the 'NHS Living Well' programme counselling individuals affected by HIV. 

In addition in the last 15 years I have worked with some of the most vulnerable children and young adults in London through Kids Company.  I have counselled individuals in desperate situations and the therapeutic intervention enable them through traumatic events and giving them tools to deal with many of life challenges.

Since 2003, as part of my role at Kids Company, I have provided counselling to parents and staff together with my team of counsellors.

I believe that a healthy mind and healthy soul will result in a healthy body. By combining spirituality to the classic techniques of counselling, I believe the results are enhanced through synergism of the two states. I respect all religions and welcome all faiths and use these positive personal beliefs to help guide individuals through hardship, stress and emotionally challenging times.
