About me

Hello – my name’s Gavita. I believe that therapy can be a life-changing experience to enhance your self-awareness and self-understanding. We all face hardships and difficulties at points in our lives and it’s not easy owning that we can’t always face this alone, but seeking therapy is a brave step and maybe the first needed to initiate change.

If you currently feel like you’re at a stage where you would like to (and feel ready to) get help and support, I am here to explore this with you. Are you feeling like you’re behaving in ways that you don’t understand, you’re unable to sleep, or you can’t stop overthinking? Are experiences from the past stopping you from moving forward? Do you struggle with low self-esteem, low self-worth or a lack of confidence?

What I can help with:

I offer a confidential, comfortable and compassionate space to listen to, explore and understand your concerns on a deeper and psychological level. Therapy is a collaborative journey and I value trust and honesty to be at the heart of the therapeutic relationship.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Masters in Psychotherapy and Counselling
  • Bachelors Degree in Psychology

I’ve had previous experience working within GP practices and IAPT and have worked with depression, anxiety, bereavement, relationship issues, pregnancy-related issues and cultural issues.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
