About me

My name is Sheetal Bharucha and I am a fully qualified MBACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist. I practice in two locations, in Central London just a few minutes walk from both London Bridge and Borough Stations and additionally serving the South-East from my Bexley/Bexleyheath location.  I also offer online sessions via Skype.

As a counsellor, I can offer you a safe, confidential, independent and non-judgemental space where we can explore problems and issues that are affecting your life. Together we can work towards gaining a deeper insight into the difficulties you face and help to improve your emotional and mental wellbeing. Therapy may help you to find better ways to cope or bring about changes in the way you behave, think or respond. This is a space where you can share things you may feel unable to discuss with anyone else.

Over the years I have gained experience in supporting and helping people dealing with a number of diverse issues including: stress, anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship issues, anger management, family issues, abuse (sexual, domestic, physical, financial, discriminatory, psychological), low self-esteem, redundancy, work related stress, bullying, self-harm, trauma, social anxiety, miscarriage and fertility issues, eating disorders, terminal illness. I also have experience dealing with issues around culture and identity.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Master’s degree in Therapeutic Counselling from the University of Greenwich.

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist, which means I use theories and techniques from Humanistic, CBT and Psychodynamic therapies, this allows me to be flexible in my approach and find the best way to help you.

I have spent a number of years working and volunteering in the charity sector; counselling in schools and universities, hospice settings and with MIND the mental health charity.

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
