Hello. I am Kinnari.
I am an experienced and qualified counsellor and have 20+ years of working as a counsellor. I am a person-centred counsellor and use a trauma-informed approach to working with clients who are affected by post-traumatic stress.
I have worked as a counsellor in women’s charities and in mental health charities. I have provided counselling to help people deal with anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, relationship difficulties and domestic and sexual abuse. I have also worked in the field of adoption counselling and have supported trans-racially and trans-nationally adopted people.
I am a registered member of the BACP. I offer brief and long-term private counselling on once or twice a week basis. I am also a clinical supervisor and offer individual and group supervision. I am also a group therapist and have developed and facilitated therapeutic groups for women survivors of childhood sexual abuse, domestic violence and eating disorders.
I am within a few minutes walk from bus and train stations and parking is available locally.

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.
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.
