Nam Prakash Kaur, UKCP accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist
I believe that happiness comes from having great energy and great relationships. If you can be really connected and loving and bring the energy you need to any situation then everything you need is going to come to you and, most importantly, you will be victorious. Without energy, nothing exists and without nourishing relationships (particularly the one which you have with yourself) everything in life can seem dull.
On my own journey, I have found that the most useful tools I have come across for helping me develop great energy and great relationships have been Kundalini Yoga and Gestalt Psychotherapy. I feel so blessed to be able to bring these tools into your life now.
Taking the first steps to admit you need support through a counselling therapy may take some courage but I believe that it is something that is becoming increasingly necessary in today’s world for all of us. I use a variety of tools from Gestalt Psychotherapy and Kundalini Yoga Psychotherapy to assist us in creating a relationship that can heal old wounds and change patterns of relating that are no longer serving you to live a complete, fulfilling life.
If you contact me please be assured that I will answer any questions you have about therapy with kindness and compassion.
Alongside my work, as a Gestalt therapist, I am a Kundalini Yoga Teacher. Kundalini yoga is an ancient technology for healing the nervous system and glandular system. Where appropriate I use meditations and exercises from this tradition to support my clients. Without healthy functioning glands, it is impossible for us to be completely happy. The bloodstream will just not have the correct balance of healthy chemicals for nourishment. Contrary to the belief of most Western medicine practice the glands do not have to atrophy as we age. The exercises in Kundalini yoga can create health and happiness throughout your life and prevent such diseases as Alzheimers, Parkinsons and Osteoporosis.
I work with Individuals, Couples and Groups. Adults and Young People.
Here are some of the things for which Gestalt/ Yoga therapy can be useful:
- Alleviating Depression
- generalised anxiety disorder
- Easing Work-Related Stress
- Family Issues
- Healing Addiction
- Panic Attacks
- Feeling Sad
- Separation and Divorce
- Affairs and Betrayals
- Seasonal Affective Disorder (sad)
- Low Self-esteem
- Emotional Abuse
- Helping you Live out your Dreams and Deepest Wishes
- To Grow Emotionally, Mentally and Spiritually
- To Understand Yourself Better
- To Sleep Better
- To Sort Out Confusion and Concentrate Better
I do most of my work in a designated room at my home (car parking and bathroom available) so that you can be assured of a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. I also work from a room in Pocklington which is on a good his route from York to Hull.
I am also able to offer Skype and telephone sessions if required.
Training, qualifications & experience
UKCP registered Gestalt Psychotherapist. I trained at the Scarborough Psychotherapy Training Institute. I receive regular supervision with an accredited Gestalt supervisor.
My training as a Gestalt Psychotherapist involved many more hours/years of clinical practice and personal therapy than would a counselling course. This experience gives me the ability to stay alongside you, however challenging the journey we undertake together may be.
Certificate in Working with Couples. I trained at Leeds Psychotherapy Training Institute.
Level 1 and Level 2 Kundalini Yoga Teacher, registered with KYTA. I trained at SKY. This training allows me to support you in a unique way to create more peace and stability in your life using ancient techniques known in Eastern philosophies. I'm currently undertaking Level 3 training and working towards becoming a Lead Trainer of Kundalini Yoga Teachers.
I am currently undertaking an accredited supervision diploma with Heward Wilkinson at Scarborough Psychotherapy Institute validated by HIPC/UKCP. As such I am able to offer supervision to individual therapists and groups at a reduced rate of £25/ hour (60 mins). Please contact me if you are interested.
I hold a current CRB/DBS certificate.

Antenatal depression, birth trauma, parenting problems
Initial session of 30 mins FREE. This allows us to assess if we would find it useful to work together without it costing you anything.
The investment if you see me at my home in Bielby is £54 for 60 mins. Sliding scale available for those who need it, £27 - £36 - £45. Please note that there is very limited public transport to Bielby. I work from a room in Pocklington, which is on a good bus route, for clients who don't drive.
These costs reflect the high costs of training that becoming a psychotherapist involves and my ongoing commitment to updating my training, enhancing my skills and receiving regular supervision so that I can serve you better.
