About me and my therapy practice

Hello! My name is Nilu (pronounced Nee-loo). I have supported people with mental health issues for over 20 years as a psychologist, academic, community worker, and therapist.

Trying to find a counsellor can feel overwhelming especially if you are already feeling engulfed by worries. You may have a particular issue you want to address, or it may be a general sense of unease where it is difficult to identify what is troubling you. Whatever brings you to our sessions, I will work with you to identify the approach which will suit you best and meet your needs.

An evidence-based theoretically sound approach drives my work. My multidisciplinary background in Psychology, Sociology, Geography, and Integrative Psychotherapy inform my approach as an Intersectional Psychotherapist. Intersectionality recognises the complexity of our lives and how we are constantly navigating multiple positions in relation to other people, places, and power structures.

Practice description

Types of sessions

Face to face sessions from a peaceful harbourside location in the heart of Bristol. Online sessions, and/or telephone sessions across the UK. 

Types of therapy

Integrative (Person Centred, Psychodynamic, CBT); Intersectional.

Who I work with

Adults, Older adults, Trainees, Young people, Marginalised groups who have not been catered to by traditional counselling (immigrant populations, refugees, asylum seekers, people of colour). Organisations (employee counselling, training, or race mediation). I offer counselling in English, Bengali, and Sylheti.

My first session

If you are interested in exploring working together, I am happy to have a discussion on the phone so I can answer any queries you have. This can help to break the ice and make sure if you wish to proceed to a first session, we have already started to know each other.

I offer a first mini-session (30mins) for free. Or a whole first session at a reduced rate of £55.  Thereafter sessions are £75
