Maninder Bains Psychotherapist & Lecturer

Life matters—but quality of life matters more. Anxiety, stress and depression impinge upon the quality of life. So,individual’s quality of life is the central focus of my client work. I have worked with clients with Bi-polar disorder, OCD, Psychosis, clinical depression, addiction,couples therapy, and acute anxiety, etc. I offer counselling and psychotherapy for short and long term to meet clients needs. I also use 2+1 model of CBT.
I am a fully trained, qualified and experienced Psychotherapist/ Counsellor and Supervisor. I have worked with various counselling organisations across Shropshire including volunteering at Telford Mind. I also review new counselling/psychotherapy books and therapy articles for magazines for various publishers.
As a private counselling practitioner my approach is open and flexible. At the initial assessment, I like to discuss the choice of therapy available and the best approach to meet the individual client’s needs, in recognition of the fact ‘one size does not fit all’. However I have no illusion that relationship between a client and a counsellor is the primary requirement for any modality to work. It is explored and brought to client’s awareness during first session.
I have been training counsellors/psychotherapist for over 15 years, and have been running courses at level 4 and 5 with very successful pass rate see http://www.walden-theroots.bacp.co.uk/ for more details.
As a professional member of the BACP I am bound by their code of practice and ethics.

Supervision & training
Quality work cannot be sustained alone. To withstand the quality of care offered to clients, the therapists need ongoing clinical supervision.
