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
