About me

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.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
