I never take for granted the fact that clients who come to counselling are at their most vulnerable. For those who are struggling with issues like depression, anxiety, abuse, both physical or mental, anxiety, relationship or sexuality and gender issues, my role in the first place is to listen and to provide a safe and confidential place for my clients to make sense of their experiences. Research has shown that the relationship between therapist and client is very important to the outcome of therapy, so I always check with my clients if they feel what we are doing in our sessions are working for them.
In a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment, I aim to help you become aware and understand any blocks you may be experiencing, both past and present, impacting your actions and feelings. With insight you can create the freedom to make conscious decisions moving forward.
My clients are Adults and Adolescence. I like to work with a directive and CBT approach to help my client to gain the coping skills to overcome the problem that they has presented with. Working during Covid as a therapist the main client presenting issues for me are Anxiety, social isolation , behavioral, Low self esteem and confidence, stress. Once we identify the clients goal by creating new coping skills in a safe space. My client can learn to redirect the negative thought patterns, feelings and actions so they can achieve their desired goal.
Hi, I am very much a Person-Centred / Humanistic Counsellor who allows the client to explore their issues and find their own way forward. I believe that sometimes we just need to stop and breath and allow ourselves the space to explore what’s next for us. I understand that counselling is not a 'one size fits all' process so I work on an integrated basis with the client to explore the therapies that will work for them. I have a special interest in bereavement as I have been working with clients who have lost loved ones during the Covid-19 pandemic. My own history of loss has helped me a great deal in this area.
Life has a habit of leaning too heavily on us at times and for longer than expected. After trying many ways to break through form the dis-ease, sadness, grief, anger, pain, fear, or trauma, trying so hard to be ok you realise "I need support". That inner knowing is calling out for change or someone to hear what has been happening for you. I would like to offer you time, a safe space to be heard and together we will develop a relationship which allows you to say what you have kept in your heart for so long and open space for your heart to heal. “We will trace the thread of life, find the knot and untangle it” Martha Ostenso
As an Integrative therapist, I endeavour to adapt my approach to suit my client’s individual needs, preferences and goals for therapy. The core of my approach is a combination of Person-centred/Humanistic and Reality therapy. My approach is rooted in empathy, understanding and compassion for the whole person, mind, body and spirit. Clients experience an environment of safety and confidentiality, where they can explore their life experience and challenges that are distressing them with acceptance, non-judgement and respect. I use Mindfulness as a therapeutic tool.
Having genes for a mental illness is less than half of the story. Exposure to traumas is the essential other part that causes a disturbance in transmitters and hormones in the body. My clients contact me when they are looking for help for reducing psychiatric medications or before taking them. My experience and training involves helping a client process their traumas to heal them emotionally and with food supplements following Walsh protocol. In this format, food supplements are prescribed instead of psychotropic medications that participate in hormonal and neurotransmitter metabolism. I can speak English, Hindi/ Urdu and Punjabi.
I am an experienced, accredited Psychotherapist in private practice since 2011. My focus is seeing the person as unfolding at different stages along life's journey. Sometimes along the way we can be knocked sideways. Failure ,loss ,abuse, relationship issues or bad choices can leave us experiencing stress, loss ,anxiety and depression . Early intervention is essential and my role as psychotherapist is to listen and enable you to gain insight. Any issue when talked about and explored in a supportive non judgemental therapeutic relationship where you are understood and supported will bring about positive change.
I work with individuals who may be struggling with anxiety, stress, low-mood, low self-esteem, loneliness, grief/loss, abuse, trauma, infertility, relationship difficulties, work and family issues, to name but a few. Or with clients who may simply be feeling overwhelmed with life in general and are unsure how to move forward. I also work with couples who may be experiencing a crisis in their relationship or who simply need guidance on how to reconnect with each other.
I believe I can help you work through and overcome a range of issues or concerns. These might include anxiety, depression, stress, self-esteem or relationship conflict. I will listen attentively to your needs to ensure my full understanding of where our sessions will be best spent. They will help the process, and ensure your needs are being addressed
Young people experiencing emotional and behavioural disturbances can find it challenging to communicate or understand why they feel this way. The process of Child Art Psychotherapy can benefit in many ways as it is relational and fosters consistency and containment. The psychoanalytic and psychodynamic approach of Art Psychotherapy incorporates verbal and non-verbal communication to gain insight into the child's thoughts and beliefs systems. The focus of therapy is to understand the unconscious material that influences behaviour and emotions in order to foster change and promote healthy psychological functioning.
Counselling offers you the tools necessary to bring your passions to life and let compassion, kindness and fun be part of your experience of life again. My job as your therapist is to co-operate with and enhance your journey towards wholeness. This is achieved by lovingly offering skills and experience, alongside knowledge of the terrain of personal development and creativity. I hold the assumption that people generally have the ability to understand themselves, are clever, honest, self-directed and able to solve their own problems. I'm here to support that assumption by reflecting back the light I see in you.
I have been Counselling couples and individuals since 2000 and clients have given feedback that they find my approach warm and friendly. I meet you where you’re at emotionally and help you to find the resources within yourself to move out of whatever “stuckness” you may be feelin.
I am well aware that life can be a struggle when trying to deal with anxiety, depression, profound sadness, grief, relationship issues, emotional upheavals, stress, long standing hurt or deeply embedded trauma. Sometimes it’s about self exploration. I offer a warm, safe, welcoming and non judgmental space where clients can come and examine how they see themselves in their world; explore unhelpful behavioral patterns and look at how they are in relationship to others and themselves. At all times in the Counselling space, I work from my heart; from a place of compassion and love, with genuine acceptance of the client just as they are
