My name is Kashmira and I have over 15 years post-qualification experience as a Counsellor and have worked with a diverse group of clients from all walks of life. I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and have worked at various organisations including a GP practice, the public sector and a charity. I also have my own private practice.
"The only constant in life is change." - Heraclitus
Life is a journey which has its ups and downs. At times it is plain sailing and at other times it can be a roller coaster ride. Are you finding it difficult to cope with life? If so, please feel free to get in touch and I will support you on your journey.
I work in a relaxed and confidential setting which would allow you to speak to me about anything that's troubling you, to help you explore, process and manage your thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Counselling is a process which enables you to gain an insight of who you are as a person and your behaviour.
I use a Person-Centred approach, which is very much working with the "here and now". It's a very non-directive therapy, and I abide by the three core principles of this approach - to be non-judgemental, empathetic, and congruent (i.e. genuine). Over the years I have developed an Integrative approach - this means that I incorporate other approaches such as mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
My practice is based in Finchley and in West Hendon. In addition to my clinics, I also offer telephone counselling, and I carry out home visits for elderly clients who need counselling at their home - please contact me to discuss.
I provide individual counselling and also work with couples. I speak English, Gujarati, Hindi and Punjabi.
What to do next?
Please contact me via email or telephone. I will arrange a free, initial phone assessment where we can talk about your needs and then put together a plan of action going forward.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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).
