I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist. I am also registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS), the Health Professionals Council (HPC), and the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP).
I work therapeutically with clients who present with a variety of mental health problems and difficulties regarding life issues. Life issues may include bereavement, the effects of childhood sexual abuse, relationship issues, domestic violence or major trauma. Mental health problems include anxiety, depression, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder or psychosis. As a Chartered Counselling Psychologist, I work collaboratively with people to explore underlying issues and empower them to consider change. I use a holistic framework when working with clients and examine issues within a wide context. I also focus on personal insight and the relationship with the client.
Counselling, therapy or talking therapies have become part of Western culture as a method of sorting through thoughts and feelings whether it be to do with work stresses, relationship problems, bereavement or just thinking through some core questions like 'who am I?', 'how did I get to be where I am today?, 'how can I move forward?'
Clinics Sessions work as one-off consultations or a series via face to face or by telephone. Sessions are usually 50 minutes but can be negotiated as longer or shorter depending on need and resources.
Therapy is integrative in order to make the use of several theories according to someone's personal style, their need, resources and in line with recommendations gained from a broad research base. Models include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Humanistic and Psychodynamic approaches. I offer therapies in Gujerati, as well as looking at cultural factors that may also be part of an individual’s presenting difficulty in therapy. Bringing in part of a client’s heritage, religion and culture is very important as it is often these that help form part of our values and belief systems.
