I take a holistic and integrative approach to therapy, exploring the ways in which mind, body, and emotion all interact and contribute to overall health. My approach is rooted in Person-Centred Therapy, although I also draw from other modalities as suits each individual. A Person-Centered approach regards therapy as a collaborative process between you and your practitioner. As such, I am committed to building strong therapeutic relationships that are grounded in mutual trust and respect and establishing a safe, accepting, and non-judgmental environment in which you feel comfortable and empowered as you embark on this personal journey.
Furthermore, I am specializing in anxiety and self-worth as positive results are monitored. I have also worked within a variety of diverse cultures, which include the issues of depression, anger, sadness, bullying, stress, and abuse, etc. I believe when an Individual is listened to and understood then, they find their inner strengths, get emotional healing, feel better about themselves, and get a good understanding of their problems. All this awareness leads to self- acceptance, to make the right choices, and find new perspectives. Everyone is looking for a solution to their problem and a clarity of mind. Therefore, in counselling, you will have a chance to make those changes at your own pace. I have also experienced people talk about their problems, but it is challenging to talk about their inner feelings because they find it difficult to express them. I will help you to go deeper so that you can express yourself without fear and still feel accepted and acknowledged.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Concessions offered for
There are following Testimonials from the clients however their confidentiality is respected and redeemed.
I would recommend Deepika to anyone who is seeking help regarding their mental health or wellbeing.
Deepika is very versatile and is able to provide support and help for any type of issue a client may have. I have had a few sessions with Deepika over several months and I have been very satisfied with results.
Deepikas honesty, kindness and humbleness made me feel as though I were in safe hands. Throughout each session Deepika was patient caring and very understanding and I was able to share everything as it was confidential between us both. The professional approach Deepika uses is of experience and this was fulfilled throughout each session.
I had a wonderful counselling experience with Dee her humility, kindness and empathy meant I could share openly about my fears.
Being able to unfold my pain in a safe environment Meant that I could heal.
I went from fear to faith in a few months.
I was gripped with anxiety about ending my twenty year career but now I have a lovely part time job.
I am now working in a recovery centre giving back what I have received.
Initially I was very apprehensive about having counselling sessions, but Dee made me feel at ease instantly. I was able to talk openly about what was on my mind, without fear of being judged. Rather than offering me a quick fix to make me feel better within weeks, Dee was able to show me the tools I needed to make longer lasting effects. On the back of the sessions that I had with Dee, I have become a lot more mindful of the thoughts that I have and am better able to judge whether these are negative thoughts that need to be removed or positive thoughts that I should hold onto. Dee is very professional and considerate and I would highly recommend her services.
