About me

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.

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Hello and welcome to my supervision profile.  In supervision, my aim is to create a safe space for you to share the pain, joy, skills, knowledge and life experience that you bring into your role as a counsellor.  I am interested in learning about you as a person and how you work with your clients.  My aim will be to get a full understanding of the interpersonal process between you and your client, to support your self-development and awareness as well as ensure that your client is supported safely.    I believe that good supervision feels safe, comfortable and challenging so that you can develop as a practitioner and your clients can receive from you a good and safe service.
