Rima has worked within the NHS for over ten years. She has developed a diverse portfolio of skills and knowledge, having worked across a variety of clinical settings during her Doctoral training, including mainly adult mental health services where she worked with people with mild, moderate and complex mental health difficulties in various community mental health teams (CMHTs). She also has a keen interest in clinical health based on her placement in London’s St Thomas’s Hospital, where she worked with adults presenting psychological difficulties relating to chronic pain.

She has an interest in helping people adjust to clinical health diagnoses, which often brings change and psychological difficulties.

Rima has been fortunate to gain experience outside of the NHS as she has also worked in higher education and voluntary/charitable organisations. She particularly enjoyed her placement at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), a University of London collegiate. Here, she worked with a diverse client population, consisting mainly of international students, majority of whom were from Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and USA. As a result, she has been fortunate to gain exposure to working with global mental health issues.

After qualifying with her Doctorate degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of East London (2015), she moved to the North West to work at the Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust. She has been employed in this Trust since 2015, working in the community eating disorders service, with people from across the life span (children, adolescents, adults and older adults) presenting complex eating disorder problems.

Rima completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Greenwich (2005), gaining an upper-second class degree. Rima completed her Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at the University of East London (2015). Rima’s Doctoral thesis explored migrant Pakistani-Muslim women’s experiences of postnatal depression. She has specialised in working with mothers experiencing antenatal and postnatal depression and is currently expanding her practice in the perinatal mental health field.

Rima remains open in her therapeutic style and adapts her therapeutic framework in line with clients’ needs, whilst remaining mindful of research evidence for the best psychological approach. She uses an integrative approach, underpinned by psychodynamic principles and incorporating techniques from a variety of other therapeutic modalities, including – cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment Therapy (ACT), compassion focussed therapy (CFT) and humanistic approaches.

Rima runs a Saturday clinic at CAYP Psychology (in the future she is looking to expand her hours during the working week) from the Manchester City Centre clinic.
