Counselling & CBT

About me

Online - All First Sessions - £30

NHS & Harley Street Experience.

Sometimes life can be overwhelming and we can be dealing with something and you may just feel stuck and unable to break out of the cycle. You may need to talk to someone to help understand your thought patterns and change them. It is okay to not have the answers, counselling, and CBT is an opportunity to look at yourself with honesty and start making changes.

Counselling can help with a spectrum of difficulties from day-to-day worries, a relationship breakdown, or psychological problems such as depression and anxiety.

You do not have to struggle alone

It is only when we speak to someone unconnected from us that we hear our thoughts and how we are really feeling. We primarily focus on clients that are dealing with life’s difficulties such as work, education, relationships and many more.

We also work with psychological problems such as Depression, Anxiety Disorders, OCD, PTSD, Panic Disorder, Abuse, Addiction, Self-Esteem, Body Image, Eating Disorders.

Deshara and her associates are a team of counsellors, psychiatrists, CBT therapists who are warm and highly qualified. We work with you to establish and help you achieve your goals at your own pace. I will offer you a safe space where you can be listened to and express your uncensored thoughts. I can also help you identify unhelpful thinking patterns and behaviours and then work to break out of this vicious cycle

Choosing a therapist can be a daunting prospect. I offer a 10-minute telephone consultation over the phone to discuss what you require help with and would like to do. Alternatively, you can send me an email with any questions you might have. Facebook and Instagram: MyLifeCounselling UK

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
