Rajan Sanger (UKCP Reg. Psychotherapist & Supervisor, HE Lecturer)
It is a fact that at some point in our lives we will find ourselves in situations where we find it difficult to cope with. These situations could cause us a lot of stress, anxiety or even cause us to become depressed, experiencing low moods. These situations can affect our relationships, personal and professional and even the way we experience the world.
My approach to counselling is person centred. This means I adopt a humanistic approach that is caring and non-judgemental. I’ll endeavour to help you work through your problems giving you the space you need to explore the issues that are affecting you.
I’m a registered psychotherapist and clinical supervisor with extensive experience of working in education and NHS. I facilitate group-work in organisations, work with individuals in safeguarding, children’s services and schools, care teams, foster and other organisations where young people might be the priority.
I provide a therapeutic space without bias and appreciation of age, gender, race, religion or sexual preference and orientation.
As you use the sessions to explore what it is you are experiencing, the therapeutic relationship will develop.
The beginning of therapy is marked by agreement of boundaries on confidentiality. These help you to freely talk about issues that are difficult to speak to colleagues or family about.
The therapist does not tell you what to do but, will help find a way to process what does come up in a way that is helpful to you.
Therapeutic work can either be short-term, with a specific objective or goal in mind, or long-term.
I am bound by the UKCP (United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy) code of ethics and subject to their professional conduct procedure.
