Hello, my name is Sushil. I am an experienced psychotherapist with a Masters and Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Transpersonal Psychotherapy and Counselling. As an integrative therapist, I am knowledgable and skilled in various therapeutic approaches including psycho-dynamic, humanistic, existential and transpersonal. Depending on the need of the individual client, I utilise the various approaches in a way that is most beneficial for the client. Over the last 8 years I have had the experience of providing counselling and psychotherapy to numerous clients, helping them to deal with a variety of conflicts and struggles.
Prioritising the client/therapist relationship, I encourage clients to trust in the process of therapy. Offering a safe, relaxed and non-judgemental environment, l aim to facilitate the exploration of personal issues enabling clients to break-free of destructive thoughts and behaviours. Helping clients to gain more consciousness of their patterns, issues rooted in the past and their limiting beliefs can lead to healing and growth.
Focusing on honesty and truth, I help clients achieve a deeper understanding of themselves leading to a better sense of self and clearer direction in life. My intuitive and empathic qualities help clients to feel contained and understood. Insight achieved through the joint process builds self-awareness leading to renewed hope and transformation.
With a background in acting, marketing & PR, I can relate to issues within the creative and corporate professions such as realising self-worth, managing stress, work place bullying and life transitions. I also have an interest in relationship issues including co-dependency, love addiction and intimacy. I have recently written an in-depth research dissertation based on 'trust' in romantic relationships.
Currently, I am practising in South London at The Awareness Centre. I also practice at an alternative location in Balham and in my local area of Coulsdon and Purley.
As a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), I work within their ethical framework. This means that I am bound by their code of conduct and ethics to assure that your therapy will be practiced to a highly professional standard.

able to work with conflicts related to culture, one's sense of belonging and identity.
Fees vary from £45 to £60 per 50-minute session, depending on time of day and location.
If this is the first time you are thinking about getting therapy, I understand that finding the right therapist can provoke anxiety.
