Kirit Vadgama HE Dip Psychodynamic Counsellor (MBACP)
Feeling anxious? Stuck? Struggling with loss? Having difficulties with a relationship? Wanting to move on but not sure where to turn? Counselling can provide relief, helping you to explore your feelings and make sense of the past and present to help you move forward.
As a trained psychodynamic counsellor I have experience working with adults and teenagers facing a range of issues including anxiety, stress, depression, difficulties with relationships, family issues, sexual abuse, affairs and betrayals. My practice offers a confidential and safe place for you to explore what’s troubling you. Through a series of sessions we work together to make sense of your problems, and help you find some relief.
I believe everyone is unique and I work in a way that is tailored to you. This could be long term counselling or through Brief Therapy, which is offered for a shorter time frame. We will always work at a pace that suits you and I offer daytime and evening appointments at my practice or by telephone.
Finding the right counsellor to help you is important. I offer the initial session of 30 minutes face to face at my practice free of charge to explore what you are looking to achieve in counselling, and give you time to decide whether we can work together.
I also offer counselling to couples facing difficulties in their relationship. I work in a non-biased way to help both individuals to be heard and find resolution on whatever issues are present in the relationship.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and abide by their Code of Ethics. I also work as a volunteer counsellor at a local community counselling centre.
I hold the HE Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling (BACP accredited) awarded by the University of Surrey. I’ve completed additional training in Mentalisation, Brief Therapy and Bereavement.
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.
