Michelle Ramrachia MBACP
Approachable | Non-Judgmental | Transformative. I truly practise with this in mind. So what happens? I arrange a free 15 minute call introducing myself. We can then schedule our first therapy session.
At our first session, I ask you why you’ve come to therapy, what you want to work on and what your end goals are.
Then I truly listen to your story – where you came from and what you’re going through. I ask questions that help me learn about your struggles and your strengths.
We can tackle together a variety of issues that's bothering you, this could include:
- Lack of self-compassion and being hard on yourself
- Anxiety and excessive worry
- People-pleasing and being the "fixer"
- Lack of general fulfilment and meaning
- Struggle with relationships
Together, we define the problem in whatever way works best, but I will not label you as the problem. There’s nothing wrong with you – you’ve just learned to survive the best way you know how.
We'll work together to rewrite your story, tackle those unwanted patterns, and find new ways of being so that you can have a better sense of well-being on YOUR terms.
Are you ready? If you put in the time, the effort, and the work during the therapy process, you will absolutely be transformed.
If you're looking for a warm and friendly therapist, why not drop me a line?

Training, qualifications & experience
I am an integrative therapist trained in a range of therapeutic methods; constantly tailoring my work to reflect what you need. I do this by weaving in different theoretical and practice traditions in the field of therapy including humanistic, psychodynamic and CBT.
Experienced in cancer, grief & loss, domestic violence, abuse and relationship issues. I also work with creatives who struggle with their creative process and self belief, who may have been traumatised during their learning years (e.g. art/music/drama school) and those who may have found themselves wishing to pursue a creative career but is stuck in a job that is not does not fit in with values.
I have experience working in the music and television industries and I am currently working for the NHS. I currently take referrals from the Centre for Better Health and Frontline-19.

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.
