Nirvana Crowley, Integrative Counsellor, MNCS (Accred)
I provide Psychodynamic, Person-centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at the Kailash Centre in St Johns Wood, London and The Brighton Therapy Centre in Brighton.
Clients come to therapy for various reasons which may include experiencing emotional or psychological distress, difficulties in relationships, going through challenging life transitions, wanting to understand themselves or their life better or wanting to find more meaning in life.
I offer both time limited and open-ended therapy that focuses on reducing suffering and supporting you to find ways to a less troubled and more fulfilled and meaningful life.
I am integrative in my approach drawing on Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CBT) and am experienced supporting clients with depression, anxiety, addiction, low self-esteem, clients experiencing relational difficulties or going through life transitions. I am also trained and experienced in working with trauma.
I would tailor therapy to your individual needs and work with you in a person-centred way to create a secure therapeutic alliance, space for you to share openly, experience empathy and be heard. I would support you in building awareness and insight into your own psychology, help you to change thoughts, behaviours and relational patterns that no longer serve you and to change your relationship with yourself.
My area of special interest is understanding how mindfulness, meditation and yoga philosophies can inform therapeutic practice. I have trained in Ayurvedic Lifestyle and Nutrition at the Ayurveda Institute UK and Yoga at S-VYASA Yoga University in India.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a MA in Counselling Psychology and trained in Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies. I have worked with clients in distress at counselling centres and charities in the UK, India and Canada over the last five years.
