About me

Do you ever get the feeling you are not being heard?

Hi my name is Kiran, I am a British born fully qualified multilingual counsellor. I have 18 years of experience of working in an educational environment. I have a good understanding of daily stresses which can cause people anxieties and other health issues. I provide counselling sessions in:

  • English
  • Punjabi
  • Hindi
  • Urdu

I work from a private practice where I offer a private, professional and confidential service for long term and short term therapy. This enables me to offer a safe environment for my clients so that we can work together to achieve your full potential. I have worked as a fully qualified counsellor since 2007.

I offer professional, confidential and empathic counselling in a central location in Leeds and Bradford to individual adults, couples, and young adults. Each session is for 50 mins. I offer short, medium or long term counselling as required.

How counselling can help

I believe counselling is a joint venture between the client and counsellor, this relationship is fundamentally important to allow you to experience growth and change that we all go through in our lifetime.

Sometimes in life, we don't understand what is causing us pain, low self-esteem, mood swings, unsettled feeling, incompleteness from within, depression or just generally not being heard. This is when counselling can help us to resolve issues that come with emotionally demanding day to day life.

Understanding cultural differences

I am aware of the cultural and language differences that may arise when seeking counselling but being able to fluently counsel in the above languages helps me to remove barriers between myself and my clients.

I have experience and understanding of many different issues adults and children face within the ethnic minority groups with regards to relationships, family, upbringing and general matters to do with day to day life.

Please get in touch via call, text or email to arrange an initial session.

Through studying, working with children/adults for sixteen years and walking on the path of life I have gained many experiences. The combination of all of these has given me my understanding and motivation needed to be a counsellor.

I am currently working in-house at various universities, counselling graduates and supporting them through their studies by helping them to overcome any barriers that they face in their student or personal life.

During my three years of working with Cruse bereavement counselling, I have gained a greater insight and understanding around the issues of bereavement and loss whether they be emotional physical or financial. My understanding of when a person loses a loved one, a colleague or a friend there is no time limit to when they will accept their loss or if they will ever accept it but with the support of counselling you could learn how to move on with daily life.
