My name is Jinny Gupta (UKCP, MBACP) and I am a psychotherapist with a private practice in West London, offering therapy to adults both online and in-person. I have a special interest in working with individuals suffering from anxiety, depression and issues concerning relationships, work and spirituality.
Our work will involve exploring the issue/s that brings you to therapy and help you deepen your understanding of your dilemma. You might find new ways of understanding your life, and uncover possibilities that you may not have known before.
As your therapist, I bring forward a way of working with you that suits your unique strengths and capabilities in the world. It is my hope that, throughout our work, you are felt deeply listened to and understood in order that you can do the same for yourself.
I offer a space which is open, non-judgemental, empathic and through the tools of curiosity and compassion, we undertake a process of exploration and discovery.
Training, qualifications & experience
I recognise the unique background, needs and goals of each client, and draw on a range of approaches and tools to address their specific situation. I also work with clients wishing to begin or deepen their existing meditation practice.
The clients who have worked successfully with me arrive with a host of issues related to anxiety, depression, trauma (PTSD), bereavement, or have faced issues concerning identity, cultural adaptation, meaning and life transitions. They have noticed experiencing unpleasant feelings and thoughts, and have sometimes acted on these in terms of behaviours which they would like to look at and change.
I completed my training at Regent's University, London in UKCP accredited Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy (ADIP). In order to further my interest in the spiritual dimension of life, I trained as a Mindfulness Meditation teacher, and have many years of practice in this area.
I have worked in various mental-health settings such as MIND-Hammersmith and Fulham, Ealing Abbey Counselling Service (EACS) and NHS-run IAPT services such as West London Centre for Counselling (WLCC). Prior to psychotherapy, I worked as an Economist and Healthcare advisor for more than a decade within governments and private sectors in India, Malawi and Iceland.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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
Accredited Register Scheme
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.

Concessions offered for
In response to your initial enquiry by email or phone, I offer a free introductory 20-minute session online. This is an opportunity for you to let me know what brings you to therapy and to find out how I work.
If this feels like a good fit and we're happy to progress, we would move to a second session for a longer conversation about your needs and goals, length of work, time and venue for your sessions etc.
I charge £80 per session for individual therapy, and each session runs for 50 minutes, usually at the same time each week.
According to your preference, I offer consultations online or in-person in Chiswick, West London. I run a private practice from a bright and calm space, 7-10 minutes walk from Chiswick Park and Turnham Green tube station with plenty of bus connections (110, 237, 267, 272, E3, H91, 94) and metered parking right outside the practice.
I offer long and short-term therapy in English, Hindi, Urdu, and some Icelandic.
