Rakshita Parmar MBACP Registered
I am an qualifed Integrative psychotherapist counselling and coach. I offer therapy in al safe and confidential environment with non-judgment, where you feel heard, respected to your personal culture value and belief system, to explore the issue that you bring to therapy.
As an Integrative psychotherapist counselling and coach. I bring with me years of lived, working, educationed knowledge and experience to tailor your needs in therapy. I believe everyone, is unique individual and have person preference. Therefore one style of therapeutic approaches is not enough at times.
Having personally experienced my own challenge in life over the years, whereby juggling with work, home life balance became challenging and lead to my metal breakdown. These experience later led me to my journey of personal development to higher education and become a therapist to enable my life and others. These personal experiences I feel has enhance my skills to being a better lister and communicator with a non-judgmental, empathic and compassionate to understanding people challenging issues and trauma.
This process has helped me value how relationship is at the heart of the therapeutic process, as well as working collaboratively in order enhance and build one's self-esteem and confidence to manage or face personal issue, that trigger stress, anxiety, anger, depression, vulnerability, weakness or other mental health issues.
I am aware counselling is not for everyone, but if you find yourself looking at my profile and are curious. Then why don’t you contact me to gain some insight about your life. I believe we don't always have to deal with all the problem along. Taking professional help can change and enhance our life in a positive way.
I counsel in English, Gujarati and Hindi.
