About me

I am an integrative therapist, warm, kind and easy to talk to. I provide a safe, non-judgemental space where we can explore any struggles you may be experiencing so that you can live with a greater sense of well being and self-confidence. I use a number of different approaches in my work, selecting the most effective for each individual's specific needs, creating your own unique experience.  

I work relationally, which means that I consider the relationship between us to be a key part of the therapy; and from an embodied position, which means I work with the whole person - mind, body and spirit. This enables me to work flexibly and holistically and to adapt my approach to meet different individual's needs as necessary.

I can offer help in many areas, but I have a particular interest and experience in working with disordered eating, particularly binge eating disorder.  One to one therapy is an opportunity for us to work together to uncover what’s driving your binge eating. There is so much secrecy and shame surrounding this issue and together we can work on what makes you feel good, mentally, emotionally and physically.  I am sensitive, respectful and non judgemental and work at a pace which you are comfortable with.  We can look at your difficulties around eating and help address the cause and look at reforming a new relationship with food.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Further information

Our first session is an opportunity to see if we connect, and discuss how we will work together.  During this 50 minute session, we will look at the circumstances that bring you to therapy and your expectations.  I will ask you some questions about your current situation and past, and we can get a sense if the relationship feels right and you feel comfortable.

I am registered with various health insurance companies and I am able to accept clients through their services.

I am based in north London and I'm currently offering face to face sessions in Covid-secure rooms in N12.

Aashna has plenty of parking nearby, and is easily accessible by public transport.
