Bhavna 'Bina' Gadher - BACP Accred
Based in Uxbridge,I work with an approach which is supportive, accepting and gently challenging. By adopting a warm, non-judgemental approach to establish an honest therapeutic relationship whereby you can freely express and explore your thoughts and feelings allowing you to gain more insight of any patterns that have been affecting you.
I work with clients on an individual basis, dealing with a wide range of issues, working with children, adolescents, adults and families.
I also have experience of issues such as cultural identity, inter-cultural marriages, forced marriage and inter-generational issues, I am able to provide culturally appropriate counselling for these issues.
The length of time clients work with me varies according to the needs of each person and includes both longer term psychotherapeutic work as well as short term counselling. In broad terms, short term counselling will typically be 6 - 12 sessions whilst working psychotherapeutically at greater depth will take longer.
As a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, I am a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). I am bound by and adhere to its Ethical Framework for Good Practice

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.
