Other areas of counselling I deal with

Low self esteem


Dr Choudhury provides an initial telephone consultation lasting up to 20 minutes free of charge; this will allow you the opportunity to briefly discuss your circumstances and decide if you would like to book a follow-up face to face psychological consultation. Dr Choudhury can provide a one off face to face psychological consultation with the option of a clinical report, brief therapy lasting up to 16 sessions and longer term therapy. The length of your therapy will be determined according to your clinical needs, your expectations, goals for therapy and any therapeutic decisions will be made collaboratively. In the event that Dr Choudhury is not able to provide your psychological therapy, or you do not wish to pursue treatment, she will happily discuss other therapeutic services and clinicians that might be suitable to meet your needs.

Further information

Psychotherapy Modalities

The rigorous doctoral level training completed by Dr Choudhury has ensured she is able to deliver psychological therapy utilising the core models of psychotherapy including Person Centred Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in an integrative and flexible manner. Dr Choudhury encompasses a holistic approach to clinical practice and is dedicated to working closely with you, to understand the most appropriate psychological approach, or a combination of approaches tailored to support you with emotional concerns.

Clinical Expertise & Interests

Areas of clinical expertise and interests include working with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and those affected by long-term physical health conditions. Dr Choudhury does not limit her practice to these areas, and has extensive experience and skills to work competently with a range of difficulties including Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Stress (any type of), Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Health Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Phobias, Panic Disorder, Low Self-Esteem and Depression. Aside clinical difficulties Dr Choudhury is able to work with individuals that are going through an adjustment period, challenges and struggles in their life; essentially she will attune herself to your needs by focusing on the areas that are important to you, listening with an open mind and supporting you within the therapeutic relationship. Dr Choudhury believes the two most powerful gifts one human being can give to another are empathy and hope. The ability to step into another person’s shoes creates a vast potential for the healing process to occur and for meaningful change to happen through non-judgmental understanding and acceptance. There is no special ingredient to alleviate emotional distress; however the power of hope developed through the therapeutic relationship can empower a person to ‘live’ rather than to ‘exist’. Dr Choudhury considers herself a guest in your private world; should you decide to invite her into your space, you can be assured that she will safeguard your right to discretion and confidentiality, and treat you with the respect and dignity that you deserve.
