Kuldeep Dhanda (MSc, PGdipCP, PGdipPT(CBT), BSc.) BABCP & BACP Accredited
I have over 15 years experience of working with clients and am an Accredited (BACP) Counsellor and Accredited (BABCP) Cognitive Behavioural Therapist.
I offer a range of services from one to one Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), EMDR, Counselling (Person Centred / Integrative) and Couples therapy (CBT) for a range of issues. I pride myself on being able to provide a safe non-judgemental environment, where my clients feel able to express their difficulties and feelings. I believe in the power of helping others to help themselves.
I have worked with clients with a range of difficulties from bereavement, relationship issues, stress, various health issues, depression, anxiety disorders including PTSD trauma, social anxiety, panic, health anxiety, worry (GAD), phobias and pain management.
I also work with couples using a Behavioural Cognitive (CBT) approach. In particular I specialise in working with infidelity, health and mental health issues affecting relationships, communication difficulties, amongst various other relationship problems. My training and skills in couples therapy means that therapy is not simply a mirror of what happens at home. Couples therapy with me is directive to enable clients to work towards their goals and make the best decisions for them.
Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a powerful and life changing therapy for many clients, with high success rates. I use EMDR with clients who have experienced various traumas, bullying and phobias.
I offer flexible ways of working to suit my client’s needs and life styles. I am able to offer daytime, weekend and some evening appointments.

I also specialise in working with Pain Management and Long Term Medical Conditions.
