Preeti Chauhan Registered MBACP Psychotherapist
I am a Psychologist and BACP Registered Psychotherapist who provides short and long-term counselling. I have ten years' experience of providing counselling and psychotherapy in the NHS and the third sector. I currently work in private practice in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham and Leicester.
As an integrative practitioner, I am trained in using a number of therapeutic modalities to suit each individual's therapeutic needs. The therapeutic modalities I use include: Humanistic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic and Mindfulness. The premise of my work involves building a therapeutic alliance in a safe space, to explore the underlying concerns, which in turn can empower an individual towards effective change and an improved sense of well being.
I offer therapy for a range of psychological difficulties including: depression, anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, the effects of trauma and abuse, low self-esteem, bereavement, substance misuse and domestic violence. I also provide support for individuals wishing to focus on personal development.
How to get started?
Commencing therapy and finding the right therapist can be daunting. Please feel free to telephone me so that we can have a brief, no obligation, conversation about what you would like to get out of counselling and ask any questions about the counselling process. We can then make a decision about whether we can work together before you commit to regular on-going counselling.
