Pindy Virdee MBACP (Accred)
My areas of expertise are very diverse, ranging from depression and anxiety, confidence, self-esteem and personality disorder, to relationship difficulties, loss and bereavement, abuse, childhood trauma, and parenting problems. My skillset is not limited to these areas and can be adapted to many different specialties thanks to my many years of experience. Mental health can affect anyone of any age or background. I offer counselling for Individuals, Couples and Groups. I am also part of the Employee Assistance Programme. My core training is in Person-Centred, Transpersonal (beyond the person) Humanistic Psychotherapy, which has enabled me to work with people on a mental, emotional and spiritual level, empowering them to achieve a balanced lifestyle. My drive is to help people seek their hidden potential and actively engage with themselves.I welcome all people – individuals, couples and groups – to join me in a safe, supportive, encouraging, non-judgmental, and nurturing space where they may explore and grow within themselves to ultimately enjoy a better lifestyle.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
