Manisha Govindia PG Dip, Registered Member BACP
Emotional and mental health well being are important for everyday living.
You don't need to feel isolated and suffer in silence, when the day to day life becomes difficult to cope with and can leave you feeling dissatisfied and unhappy with yourself and your relationships. Talking through and exploring your feelings with an experienced therapist in a safe and supported environment can be helpful. I understand that choosing the right therapist is not easy, and in the first session we can explore what you are looking for in a therapist.
I am a qualified experienced Person Centred Therapist and I recognise that everyone is different and a unique individual. My aim is to help people find their voice and inner strength to realise their potential to be true to them self. I am easy to talk to and non–judgmental and I work with wide-ranging human issues including: making adjustments to major life events, abuse, ageing, anger, anxiety, childhood neglect, chronic pain, cultural complexities, cults, depression, eating disorders, family issues, grief, health worries, relationship difficulties, sexuality, self-harm, panic attacks, and personal and work stress.
I provide a safe, confidential place, where you can be yourself without fear of being judged or imposed upon. I can help you to reduce feelings of isolation and help you to build courage to work through your problems and make changes that are right for you in your life.
All sessions are confidential and I offer as many sessions as you require to work through your problems. The client is at the centre of their therapy and I provide guidance through the therapeutic process.

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.

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).

Here is what you need to do to get started in counselling with me:
Call me on my mobile - 07812081064 or email me to make an appointment or to have a chat about what you are seeking from counselling, this is also an opportunity for both us to see if we can work together.
Counselling sessions are open ended, that is, you can come for as long as you need to work through your problems. I also offer time limited work, of 6- 12 sessions .
You pay at the end of each session in cash or cheque. If you are unable to attend a session then please give me 24 hours notice if possible, otherwise I will have to charge for the session. I understand that there unforeseen circumstances that can arise which will prevent you from giving me 24 hours notice for cancellation and in this instance I will reassess the payment.
