Being an integrative psychotherapist I use different therapeutic models e.g TA, CBT etc according to the needs of my clients.

I offer evening, weekend and day time appointments.
I speak different languages such as English, Marathi, Hindi, Urdu, Gujrathi and I have a very good understanding of Punjabi. I do long term and short term work, according to the needs of my client. I believe emotional pain is as important as physical pain and can not be ignored and with a right kind of help individuals has power to heal themselves.
I believe therapeutic relationship depends on mutual respect and understanding. Therapy provides you an opportunity to express yourself and your situation to a professional in a confidential manner. I can provide you with a safe environment where we can explore the issues you are struggling with. This will help you to understand the source of distress you are experiencing and can provide you with options.

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.
