Varta Kadiyan MBACP Reg.
I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I work with a wide range of issues and provide a safe, confidential and non judgemental space for you to explore any concerns you might have. I offer long term psychotherapy and short term counselling to suit your needs.
My work is informed by both Humanistic and Psychodynamic approaches and I take a particular interest in exploring the way our past informs our present, thus gaining new awareness and insight into your current issues.
But sometimes insight alone is not enough; this is why I consider the therapeutic relationship the most important aspect of therapy that provides a corrective emotional experience. I believe in every person`s own uniqueness and ability to grow and change but sometimes it can feel difficult to take the first step. This is why finding the right person to support you in your journey of self discovery is important. I aim to create a trusting relationship with my clients so they would feel safe to explore their problems and find their own solutions.
