Amita Marwaha: BSc (Hons)- MBACP Registered Psychotherapist & Counsellor
Hello and welcome
I'm an experienced, qualified and registered psychotherapist with practices in City of London, Baker Street, and Ruislip. With over 12 year's experience in the field of psychotherapy, I work with individuals and couples with a wide variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues and work stress. I offer both short and long-term therapy.
My approach is simple, warm and down to earth.
I offer a unique approach to therapy (not a one-size-fits). Listening is just the first step. I then provide practical coping skills to adapt to your everyday life. My style not only allows you to talk openly, but to put into practise tools and techniques that you work through in therapy, allowing you to move forward and change.
I work with you at your pace; developing realistic personal goals and providing the right tools helping you to grow and put the control back in your hands.
- At any time, any one of us can suffer from depression, anxiety, stress, relationship problems or unresolved issues, as well as the associated physical symptoms – panic attacks, tiredness, lack of concentration or focus, and poor sleep. All of these get in the way of you going about your daily life with purpose and energy.
Counselling/Psychotherapy can be an extremely powerful tool in helping us understand more about difficult or challenging relationships or situations. By working with a trained psychotherapist, you can become the person you want to be and develop to your full potential both personally and professionally.
