About me

Hello and welcome,

Hi I'm Aman. I'm a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and treat specific conditions such as anxiety or depression.  CBP is an evidence based therapy and its success is also demonstrated in the work I have undertaken with clients.

What can you expect?

The aim of CBP is to enable you to learn and apply new skills and techniques to help you to overcome your emotional distress.

I can offer short and long term therapy.  Sessions last for 50 minutes and I would recommend  either weekly or fortnightly attendance. With children and young people I take a slightly different approach as I may involve the  parents or care givers, where appropriate, to reinforce what is covered in the session. This could be to enable them to support the client to apply techniques learned in the sessions.  This will either be part of the session or via telephone contact outside the session.

Individuals often come to me for treatment of anxiety.  If you are experiencing anxiety it is important to identify what type of anxiety it is.  The anxiety disorders I work with are Generalised Anxiety Disorder (e.g. about day to day life), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (e.g. intrusive thoughts and repetitive behaviours), Social Phobia (e.g.fear of being negatively judged by others, avoidance of social situations), Panic Attacks and agoraphobia (e.g. a sudden episode of intense fear that triggers severe physical reactions) and Health Anxiety (e.g. constantly thinking you have a life threatening illness)

I also treat a range of other conditions and problems as listed below.

I offer a safe, private, confidential and non-judgemental environment to allow you to speak openly and truthfully about the problems affecting you. The first meeting will focus on undertaking a comprehensive assessment of your difficulties using a CBP approach. This will allow us to formulate specific goals to be included in your individualised treatment plan which will be periodically reviewed.

Training, qualifications & experience

A little about my journey?

I had no intention of becoming a therapist when I completed my Level 2 Counselling Skills Certificate and the only reason for attending the course was to help enhance my communication with young people, as I was working as a Part Time Youth Worker. I really enjoyed the course and it really did enhance my work and build better relationships with young people. On completion I decided to enrol on a Level 4 Diploma in Counselling followed by a Post Graduate Diploma in CBP at Derby University in 2013, and I haven't looked back since.

I have over 10 years of clinical experience and I am consistently updating my knowledge and skills to ensure I am fully aware of current issues. relevant to my work.  I have varied clinical experience that includes working with children and young people in Primary and Secondary Schools and delivering delivers therapy under the NHS 'Improving Access to Psychological Therapies' (IAPT).

Here's a list of some of my qualifications and training:

Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy (Level 7)

Diploma in Psycho-therapeutics (Level 5)

How do you get in touch?

I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation. This will give you the opportunity to briefly discuss your reasons for accessing psychotherapy, and for you to get a sense of me as a person you can potentially work with. If you think I'm not the right person and my approach is not what you're looking for, I will do my very best to point you in the right direction. You can  email me on coventrycbt@gmail.com or click on the 'call link' above.

Where am I located?

I practice from four clinics based in Birmingham, Coventry, Leamington Spa and Nuneaton. I can be flexible and work weekdays, most evenings and Saturdays and Sundays.
