MindworksUK Psychological Services is a charity organization, founded in 2014 by Sahar Beg, a Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Supervisor with over 20 years of experience in the field.
We are a service provider to local communities, charities and companies primarily within South London and other London boroughs. Due to the pandemic we are now accepting referrals out of London. All our face to face sessions have reverted to using Zoom or telephone sessions or a similar platform. We accept referrals from other organisations as well as private referrals. Currently we do not have a wait list but do inform clients that they may need to wait up to 3 weeks to see the counsellor.
MindworksUK has now grown with over 20 counsellors working with us and we have access to over 8 languages. These include, English, Arabic, Somali, Bengali, Urdu, Punjabi, French, Czech and Gujrati. With the variety of languages we offer, we have found that clients have a better outcome in the counselling sessions as they are more relaxed and able to express themselves in their native language. This is in line with our inclusive ethos as we aspire to also reach out to the BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) communities. We accept referrals from wide demographic and we do have a high proportion of our clientele from the South Asian background. We work with the Muslim community as many of our counsellors practice faith based therapy which is something that clients make a request for.
We work closely with women who have suffered or going through domestic abuse and or violence and sexual abuse. We work collaboratively with other agencies to support these women and are always open to collaborating with new organisations to offer our services or training.
