Nimisha is a BACP registered independent therapist with a special interest in women’s mental health. She has worked with a broad spectrum of people over the last 25 years both privately and for the public sector including the NHS and higher education. She has also volunteered at Rape Crisis and a Women’s Centre and retains a strong interest in women’s issues. Working in corporate and legal environments has also given her a unique insight into the demands corporate life places on people, both in terms of their physical and mental wellbeing. Nimisha’s experience has enabled her to help people deal with situations where they feel hopeless or out of their depth. She especially enjoys building close relationships with people by working with them intensively on a one to one basis to enabling them to find their own solutions to problems they had previously thought insurmountable.
“As a psychotherapist, I believe that therapy works because of the relationship between the therapist and the individual. I can provide a warm, non-judgmental and trusting environment in which you can be heard and explore those feelings which you may be struggling with and to find ways forward for acceptance and change.”
In her spare time, Nimisha loves doing yoga and scuba diving and views both of these activities as a form of mindfulness. Having come to motherhood later in life, she also loves spending time with her young son.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited Register Scheme
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).
