Counselling for Arabic speaking women


My area of expertise is Humanistic Integrative Counselling for BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) women, including women from Arabic speaking communities.

Work with Arabic speaking women

I have great experience of working on both short and long term counselling and I have previously counselled women survivors of domestic abuse for over a year with the Adult Therapy pilot project at the Domestic Violence Intervention Project (DVIP) and for over a year and a half at Woman’s Trust. I have supported women whose lives have been affected by forced marriage, female genital mutilation and the so called honour based abuse.

In addition, I have worked exclusively for over 10 years with Arab women who have been affected by domestic abuse in my role as Women Support Practitioner at Al-Aman, the Arabic speaking project of DVIP.

In 2012 I co-produced “Al-Aman toolkit for professionals” which aims to increase professionals’ understanding of specific cultural and religious issues underpinning domestic abuse within the Arab community. I have also delivered specialised training and workshops all over London within statutory, voluntary and community based agencies.


Meriem is a very caring person. She takes her work very serious. I worked with her previously and she offered good support to all her clients who suffered domestic abuse. She is a very good listener and therefore she offers great emotional support. She will offer you the right support that is adequate to your needs and she will follow your progress step by step. She will never jude you because she believes in you and knows it is never your fault. She is a good shoulder to cry on. Keep up the good work Meriem.

An absolutely outstanding therapist, highly professional and compassionate. Meriem is a therapist who is highly skillful and has the ability to listen to you, undestand and respect you, and help you change how you feel and make lasting positive changes. Meriem has the knowledge and skills to help clients open up and talk about the reasons for their distress and uncover their inner strength to help them overcome hurdles in their lives.
I would definitely recommend Meriem, she is a wonderful therapist and I am very glad to know that she is there to offer her services.
