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 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.
