Gulshan Vazir (MSc, DPsych)
***During this challenging time, I am offering new and existing clients therapy sessions over Zoom or Whatsapp at a reduced rate.
I am a HCPC registered Counselling Psychologist working in North London. I offer short and long-term psychotherapy and counselling for various issues in the areas of adjustment and stress/coping concerns (home, school, work), mental health (i.e. anxiety, depression, PTSD), relationship based difficulties (often working with couples and families), severe mental health illness including bipolar, personality disorders and addictions.
My experience enables me to provide compassionate therapy using the most effective methods when supporting individuals to overcome their difficulties. I believe having the space to reflect in a non-judgemental relationship can help develop new ways of coping and managing.
Training, qualifications & experience
My training includes Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, CBT, Compassion Focused Therapy and Existential Therapy. I also have experience in physical health conditions and end of life care.
Prior to my Doctorate training, I completed my masters in Clinical Neuroscience, King's College London. Alongside my private practice, I have worked for the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust and now lead a Physical Health Psychology Department at St George's NHS Foundation Trust. I also offer supervision for Counselling Psychology students.
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.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
