Fearless Counselling in Cardigan | Rozanna Niazi

MEET ROZANNA, LLM, Dip. Couns.

Hi, I'm Rozanna Niazi, a professionally qualified psychotherapist who's passionate in supporting adults and couples with issues that may be having a negative impact on their lives. Calling on over thirty years of expertise, I can teach you skills to manage your emotions and relationships more effectively, to help you live a richer life. I can help you to understand your feelings and sit with you as you learn to behave more purposefully.

 

Now retired from law, I was a solicitor and founding partner in the Legal 500 firm, Burke Niazi (burkeniazi.com), established by me in 1997. My specialisms were in mental health, relationship breakdown and child protection. I was an accredited children's lawyer. I supported clients through separation and divorce, child contact cases, care proceedings and adoptions. I was a leading authority in mental health law, facilitating better treatment for acutely ill people and training other professionals in the field. As a senior executive, I also managed the large cohort of professional and support staff at my firm.

Despite career success, I became disenchanted with corporate life in London. I took a leap and sold my business to seek a change of direction, to travel and live and work abroad. Ten years ago, I settled down on a five acres smallholding in West Wales, wanting to live more sustainably, be in touch with nature and find balance in my career and family life.

When it came to re-imagining my career path, training as a psychotherapist seemed an obvious progression. I love this work, as I thrive on guiding people through transitions, dilemmas and life crises towards change and growth. I have a particular interest in Autism Spectrum Disorders and working with people from the LGBTQ+ community. My know-how means I am a competent parenting and relationship coach.

MY QUALIFICATIONS

  • Bachelor of Law, LLB (Hons), Master of Law, LLM (Comm)

  • Solicitors’ Professional Exams, 1991

  • Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, Sheffield Hallam University, 2006

  • Post Graduate Diploma in Couples’ Counselling, Sheffield Hallam University, 2007

I have acted for social services in child abuse cases and the charitable sector for domestic violence, homelessness and anti-bullying organisations. I have worked as a Chair and counsellor for MIND, the NHS and a drug and alcohol agency. I regularly upgrade my expertise and have post qualification training in a variety of therapeutic modalities including Motivational Interviewing (MI), Attachment Theory and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT).

 

I am a Registered Member of the BACP, the professional body for counsellors and psychotherapists. This means the training I have undertaken meets BACP standards for accredited counsellor training and confirms the validity of my qualifications and professional status as a competent and effective counsellor. I am also a member of the Black, African and Asian Therapy Network (BAATN) and, identifying as a person of colour, I appreciate the intersectionality of race and psychological wellbeing with people from other heritages.
