Aashima Aggarwal (MSc Psychology, PG Dip. in Counselling, Reg. BACP)
Hi, my name is Aashima Aggarwal, and I'm a fully trained and qualified counsellor and psychotherapist.
I provide a safe and confidential environment where I use my main superpower, the ability to listen intently and reverently, to understand and provide a unique therapeutic process to the individual. I use a combination of therapies and techniques including meditation, emotional freedom technique (tapping), and talking therapies (such as CBT, where appropriate).
I'm motivated to ensure that the process of counselling/therapy works for you. Successful counselling/therapy firstly starts with the willingness to help yourself. With this foundation, can we build trust and openness and work towards a meaningful counselling relationship that will lead to successful outcomes.
I have a lot of experience helping deal with a variety of concerns, but am especially skilled to address the following:
- Low Self Esteem
Low Self Confidence
- Parental Difficulties
- Post Redundancy Anxiety/Stress
- Work Related Stress
Training, qualifications & experience
My educational background includes a Masters in Psychology, a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling, and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education.
I have over 10 years of experience providing counselling/therapy services to a variety of clients including adults, older adults, families, and adolescents on a short to long term basis. I am also a fully qualified teacher and have taken on roles as a Psychology teacher in a number of secondary schools and colleges. My experience also includes working at an autistic school.
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.
