Thank you.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a private Counselling Therapist and I have been practicing for over 6 years.

I have followed my passion to help others and went on to being awarded with a Masters in Counselling Psychology.

I have been working therapeutically with adults for over 6 years on a one to one basis and gained vast experience overtime with clients presenting various mental health issues including anxiety, difficult regulating emotions, trauma and loss, stress, wanting to improve general life direction, low self-esteem and self-confidence, and low mood to name a few. 

As a professional, working within the ethical framework to ensure boundaries are set and confidentiality is maintained is very important to me.  I do my best to ensure I hold a good understanding of client’s wellbeing and safety, so I do keep myself updated with continued professional development to ensure I am working within the ethical guidelines. I do strive to expand my knowledge where I can and enhance my skills as a Therapist in order to offer my best self to my clients. The client’s welfare is the upmost priority for me, so I ensured I registered with a reputable organisation and became an individual member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I also hold valid professional indemnity insurance, and I have a clear Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.   

I hope you are able to get the correct support for you.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any queries you may have.

Best wishes.

Practice description

I am very passionate in helping and supporting others who are struggling with their mental health, and I strive to provide an effective holistic means of improving others wellbeing. I have been trained predominantly in Person-Centred Therapy which is a humanistic approach focusing on the client’s needs. It is a non-directive talking therapy allowing the client the space to move freely in the session. I also hold experience in practicing Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with clients which is also a talking therapy where the Therapist and client work together to identify any dysfunctional thoughts or behaviours that are maintaining the issues they are presenting, and thinking about whether these could be changed. Solution-Focused Therapy is another talking therapy I find to be powerful, and this is a more goal-orientated approach which highlights the client’s ability to find solutions or alternatives to the problems they are facing. I believe clients require a mixture of therapies on their counselling journey for it to have an effective outcome and to tailor it specifically to their needs which will support them best.

I understand culture can be important for some clients. Coming from an Asian cultural background myself, I am able to speak fluently in the two other languages Punjabi and Hindi. I feel this enables me to reach out to those who feel limited with not being able to speak the language English fluently, and are struggling to find the right support due to their language barriers.

My first session

Clients tend to book in for weekly sessions as this gives them consistency. Together we select a suitable time and tend to rebook in for the same slot. It can vary with how quickly a client progresses whilst on their counselling journey as everyone has their own personal challenges, so the number of sessions each client feels is suitable can also vary due to this. Most clients find 6 sessions to be helpful and effective, but some clients prefer to have more sessions and space this over a certain period of time.

 

I have worked therapeutically with both male and female adult clients aged 18 and over belonging to different ethnic groups and from different working backgrounds. I feel this has exposed me to have a wide range of experiences as every client brings their own uniqueness and individuality which I have comfortably been able to adapt to as a Counselling Therapist. At the moment sessions will be via video call and over the telephone which has been working very effectively.
