Niloufar Mersadi

Psychotherapist in London

If you are looking for an open, receptive and warm space to feel held and understood, I'm here for you.
We can talk about what matters to you and help you gain insights into your difficulties but you can also receive healing.
Since I was very young I've always found it natural and rewarding to really be with others with full
presence and listen to their life stories and struggles but also hopes and dreams.
Through volunteering for a few mental health charity organisations and mentoring
and befriending those with mental health difficulties and other life challenges, I found a deep sense
of purpose, meaning and aspiration in becoming a psychotherapist. I then embarked on my training
journey and trained for nearly 8 years and completed my doctorate in Counselling Psychology.
Alongside that, I was also always amazed by the power of holistic approaches to healing and trained
in various modalities such as Reiki, Mindfulness, and Ecotherapy.

Background & Qualifications

I have been working across different settings including NHS primary and secondary care, charity, university
counselling and bereavement services for nearly 10 years.

In June 2018, I have founded my limited company, Gaia Psychological and Therapeutic Services, offering
psychotherapy, counselling and holistic healing. This happened after a series of profound experiences,
through which I was re-connected with a deep sense of oneness with the natural environment
and its innate self-healing capacities, which is also within each of us.

I have a doctorate in Counselling Psychology, an MSc in developmental neuroscience. I am a certified crystal healer and a Reiki level 2 practitioner. I also have many years of experience in practising yoga and meditation and teaching meditation to others. I am also a shamanic apprentice with The Sacred Trust completing a three year comprehensive training.

My Specialisms

My areas of specialty are mental health problems such as depression and anxiety, relationship issues, insomnia, fatigue, psychosomatic difficulties such as stress-related headaches, backaches and digestive problems, grief and other unprocessed feelings, and trauma.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I work integratively, drawing from different approaches depending on clients' needs and preferences. I am committed to providing a
safe, non-judgemental and open space for my clients to explore what matters to them. I don't believe
in one-size-fits-all approaches to counselling and healing and I see each client as a unique individual.

In our holistic healing sessions we explore the full spectrum of your difficulties as well as your history and patterns. Depending on your needs, through using counselling, Breathworks, visualisation and meditation practices, Reiki, crystals and shamanic methods we aim to restore balance and harmony to all dimensions of your being. Note that distant healing sessions for a lower fee are also possible.

"Niloo has been a great help for my chronic insomnia after a short peirods of treatment, perhaps more than she knows. She is professional, knowledgeable, empathic and very attentive to all my needs during the sessions. It is very rare to find a reiki practitioner who is also a doctor in psychotherapy. I highly recommend Niloo to anyone who is looking for reiki therapy as a healing modality. A."

"Niloufar is a sensitive, kind and powerful healer. I received a distant healing from her and totally recommend her. I felt a few changes in my physical body (e.g., knee pain relieved) and released some emotional blockages."

"I recently had a long distance Reiki healing session with Niloo which was my first ever Reiki experience. I only had a vague idea of what to expect but Niloo took care to explain clearly what I needed to do and how the session would unfold with plenty of opportunity to ask questions putting me completely at ease.
Before the session I was invited to share any presenting issues that I wanted support with and these were all taken on board with sensitivity and respect and brought into the session.
In the session I felt myself held with a caring attention. I could sense energies moving in my body which I was not expecting but which I found to be deeply relaxing and soothing. I have noticed the continuing healing effects of the session over the subsequent weeks.
I found Niloo to weave her qualities of warm compassionate care, and professionalism perfectly to bring her full presence to this powerful healing modality. I will be going back to her for more and highly recommend her as a practitioner. "

"Niloo is an incredibly safe, wise and inspiring source of profound healing. Having done multiple sessions with her over the last months, I have found the process gentle and deeply supportive. Sessions with Niloo are both precise (stemming from therapeutic insight) and open (since the sessions are very organic) and consistently connect me to abundance, power, magic, and deep stillness. Niloo creates spaces that enable me to fully surrender to what is possible and beautiful in life, and in myself. "
