Thank you for reading my profile among the many others on this site. I know it can be hard to find the right therapist for your needs.
My name is Jasmer Chauhan, and I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist. I understand that you may have some issues in your life that you want to address, and I think it is important that you choose a therapist who can help you with that. That's why I offer a free initial telephone or virtual consultation to make sure I have the skills, experience, and approach that suit you. This will also give you a chance to see if we can connect and work together in a way that feels comfortable for you. Besides the professional aspect of our work, there is also the personal aspect of feeling safe, supported, and listened to in the session.
We are all human, and we all face different challenges in life. By creating a safe and confidential space for you, we can start to explore your life experiences together. Working together as a team will ensure that you are the focus of our sessions and that we address your concerns in order of priority. Through our sessions, I will help you find ways to cope with your issues more positively and effectively. I will work with you to empower, motivate, and inspire you to become a better version of yourself.
The practice is conveniently located with easy access from Milton Keynes, Bedford, and Northampton, in a professional business setting, with plenty of free parking on site. My practice is also easily accessible with access to a lift.

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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

When something in our life, or the life of a loved one, is causing stress, concern, or even harm, therapy with an experienced and qualified therapist can provide a place for you to talk in a safe and confidential space without feeling judged. This is an opportunity for you to be held and heard as an individual and not as a title or role, such as mother, wife, father, husband, partner, son, daughter, etc. I have the experience, training, and capacity to work with you regardless of your gender, ethnicity, beliefs, sexual orientation, or age.
Therapy helps us to discover why we are feeling the way we do, by identifying a way of helping ourselves to move forward. The basic premise behind the therapy is for you to be able to completely offload your worries without the fear of burdening the listener with the weight of what you may be carrying. It is my role as your therapist to help you put down your concerns and regain a sense of control relating to your thoughts and emotions. By working collaboratively together you can begin to process who you are and commence the therapeutic journey of discovering why you are feeling or behaving the way that you do.
