Manjit Bhogal - UKCP Accredited Psychotherapist and Counsellor
HPC Psychotherapist and Counsellor; Life is an unpredictable journey which ebbs and flows until we meet our final destination. Life deals us many cards which can through us into a direction that we would have never imaged ourselves in and when this happens life can be unbearable or a very lonely and frightening place to be. In life we tell ourselves that ‘I don’t need help’ or ‘I can do it alone’ because ‘no one will understand me or believe me’ which often leads to isolation, fear and raised anxiety and depression. So in life we sit with the fear of feeling judged and shame, with our depression and our anxiety trying to reassure ourselves that life is going to be okay.I ask you what life would be like for you if you had some help, if you sent that email or made that phone call and reached out for a little help. I ask you, if you strived for a life to be more fulfilling and not just bad or okay, what would that be like for you?
If you are looking for a place to make meaning of your life to seek emotional support and direction please get in touch. I work with a broad range of issue some of which I have highlighted below:
sexual or emotional abuse
bereavement and loss
Job relate concerns
I recognise and embrace individuality and therefore I will ensure that your therapy is tailored to your individual need. I strive to offer you a safe and confidential environment to explore your issues, help you to challenge your thoughts and behaviours and ultimately help you to find a way of living a fulfilled and happy life.
I work in accordance to the UKCP guidelines and aim to run a highly ethical and professional practice.
What can you expect?
The core experiences of psychological or emotional distress are disempowerment and a disconnection from others. Psychological relationship can help with the recovery of empowerment, inner peace and the creation of new connections, it cannot occur in isolation. For me it is important for you to lead and own your therapy sessions this will be done through a nurturing counselling relationship in which your emotions and thoughts are acknowledged and explored. Within the preservation of safety, you can explore the triggers of your thoughts and behaviours and learn to control them rather than they control you and to challenge any negative self-disbeliefs. The sole purpose of counselling is to promote healing and empower you to make decision that will ultimately lead you to having a fulfilling life.
