Dr. Tarun Pamneja UKCP HCPC
Are you troubled by addictions or relationships? Are you interested in exploring meaning in life?
Psychotherapy offers a way to understand your self and your life better through a professional, caring and confidential relationship. Learning to manage difficult life experiences may lead to changes and greater contentment.
Why Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology? Psychotherapy is a specific type of conversation aimed at helping you know yourself better. Most schools of wisdom recommend "Know thyself"and that is the aim in psychotherapy. Modern life disconnects us from our selves and encourages us to ignore links between our experiences and suffering. We do not pay attention to the importance of meaning, purpose and direction in life.
Self-knowledge gained from our work might alleviate some troubles and help you recognise your direction of travel in life. Such learning about your self together with the experience of being heard and understood within a therapeutic relationship helps to develop better connections.
Psychotherapeutic conversations are not easy or comfortable but nothing worth achieving ever is. For this reason, there is a need to commit to a regular space in your life for self-development. It needs to become somewhere you go to remember, think and experience. Such conversations are unlike those with friends and family because you need someone trained to help, ask the right questions and not be invested in maintaining your current life.
The benefits of psychotherapy derive from the life-changing magic of knowing your own psychology. I will work with you to create a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment where you can speak openly and be heard.
The capacity to act with integrity rests fundamentally on the integration of the personality (Margaret Cohen)

My fees range between £60-90 for regular on-going sessions of 50 minutes. I charge £60 in Brighton and at least £90 in London. We will negotiate our fee at our initial meeting, not before.
Therapy is a commitment on both sides so once we agree on a time slot, I charge for missed sessions. If you let me know in advance when you have to miss a session, I will try and offer an alternative time during the same week.
I work in Central London near the Barbican in EC1 and in central Brighton.
I have a third floor office very close to Barbican station. I am within easy walking distance of Holborn, Chancery Lane, Farringdon, Old Street, Liverpool Street and Moorgate stations
Unfortunately there is no disabled access at either practice.
My ethical stance and professional values are governed by my passion for and belief in the value of psychotherapy. To this end, I work hard to offer a confidential and supportive environment informed by my professional memberships of the United Kingdom Council on Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
As far as your data and confidentiality are concerned, I retain and process only the absolute minimum information needed to offer you a service in line with professional and legal requirements.
