Smita Rajput Kamble, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist
I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist practising in Milton Keynes for 20 years. I offer both-short term and open ended psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Psychotherapy varies with time and frequency. A long therapy can be stabilising and offer depth and emotional intimacy. But sometimes, short term work is more suitable.
My trainings (Oxford and London) gave me a classical psychological understanding of the causes of anxiety, depression and phobia and the effects of absence and loss. I can help with anxiety, depression, insomnia, stress, anger management, bereavement and loss. Issues such as paranoia and agrophobia, relationship difficulties, harassment and abuse in the workplace or personal, and its long term effects on the mind, performance anxiety, loss of motivation. In our first session we will discuss what brings you to therapy at this time in your life, your expectations from therapy and practical issues such as time. We will explore what we can do in the short or/and long term and if you want to continue, we will organise further sessions.
An initial session will help you to get an idea of what it would be like to work with me.
In your initial session we will discuss:
1. Your issue and explore underlying trauma and inner conflicts
2. Whether these issues can benefit from psychoanalytic psychotherapy
3. My terms and conditions, which are in line with how psychoanalytic therapy is practised in the UK
4. A time frame and finance
Four or six sessions can stand alone, are therapeutic and generally help people to feel much better. We will do a review before taking it further.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
British Psychoanalytic Council
The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.
BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
