What Started Yasmin Salim On The Path Of Becoming a CB Therapist
- Working as a counsellor in a number of sectors allowed Yasmin to recognise that some people required additional support in overcoming their difficulties. She was interested in understanding people’s problems and what was possibly maintaining them. It was important to Yasmin to be able to offer support where the client was central to their recovery and using an integrative approach allowed her to adapt to the clients needs.
