Jayshree Unadkat Bsc, MA MBACP
Sometimes life can become overwhelming and we just need some space to make sense of it. In situations of overwhelming emotions it is easy to minimise or to ignore what may be causing this pain. If we can allow ourselves to give some time to explore these emotions, in a safe and non judgemental space then they may be more manageable. I work in the here and now, using mindfulness in my work, along side how our first-attachments may shape how we experience ourselves and the world around us. I believe through self reflection and acceptance we can begin to value ourselves and begin to feel valued too.
My life, training, personal and cultural experience lends me to be open and accepting of differences and respectful of choices we all make.
Trained and qualified to a Masters level, and BACP registered counsellor, I aim to offer support, clam space and a listening ear to enable you to explore your emotions. We can work together to build an honest and trusting relationship, in which you can begin to find your way through your life path. I offer long and short term counselling covering range of distressing situations and events.
