Bina Badiani: BACP& BABCP Accred.P.G.Dip.IntegrativeCounsellor & CBT therapist
Hello my name is Bina and am a qualified Accredited counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am also an accredited member of BABCP and a qualified Cognitive Behavioural therapist.
Sometimes in life we are confronted with a situation or with problems which can be overwhelming. We can feel stuck, confused or anxious.Counselling provides a regular time and space for clients to talk about their problems and explore difficult feelings in a safe, caring, confidential and non judgemental environment.
I have been trained integratively which means I work with different approaches to tailor and suit my clients. Recently I have trained to work as an HI CBT therapist (Cognitive Behavioural therapies). I also work with people with long term health conditions.
Counsellors do not offer advice but instead help the client to gain insight and understanding of their thought patterns and behaviours. Currently I am a PCPT therapist and provide short term therapy for NHS clients. I have worked with a wide range of issues like depression, anxiety, panic attacks, OCD, low self esteem, bereavement and many more areas of mental health problems. I have also worked with victims of sexual abuse and rape.I offer short term or long term therapy. It is my aim to support and to listen to my clients and help them with their difficult times.
How I work
I work in an integrative way which enables me to use different types of therapies depending on the needs of my client. Counselling provides a regular time and space for clients to talk and explore difficult feelings in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
I am based in Gravesend and offer support to people over 18 years of age. As a counsellor I do not give advice but help you gain insight and understanding into your issues and problems. I can also communicate in Hindi and Gujarati.
