Miranda Arya MBACP (Accred) Counsellor & Psychotherapist
I am a professionally qualified and BACP Accredited integrative relational counsellor and psychotherapist in South West London providing support to adults and adolescents
I offer a safe, calm space in which to explore thoughts and feelings which may be causing distress. As an integrative psychotherapist, I blend different theories and approaches to suit your specific needs and work collaboratively with you to help understand potentially overwhelming feelings, patterns of behaviour and ways of relating to others that may have become unhelpful. It is a shared process to bring about change.
I have worked at Mind, KCA (drug and alcohol support), schools and in private practice, with clients from many different backgrounds and cultures and offer short and long term therapy, depending on your individual needs.
I am committed to providing high standards of therapy and continually invest in my own development and learning. As an accredited member of the BACP I abide by their code of ethics and have regular clinical supervision and attend CPD events.
My practice is in North Kingston, on the 65 bus route and 10 minutes walk from Kingston Station.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
