Hello, my name is Sushil. I am a fully qualified and experienced, UKCP accredited psychotherapist and counsellor. I obtained a Masters and Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Transpersonal Psychotherapy and Counselling at the Centre for Counselling & Psychotherapy Education (CCPE, London). I have since been working within the NHS and in Private Practice offering both long and short term counselling and psychotherapy.
Over the last 10 years I have practiced as an integrative therapist in mainly the South London area, including Purley and Coulsdon in Surrey. I am knowledgable and skilled in various therapeutic approaches such as psychodynamic, humanistic, existential and transpersonal. Through these various approaches, I have helped numerous clients presenting with a variety of conflicts and struggles including anxiety, depression, relationships issues and addiction.
Offering a safe, relaxed and non-judgemental environment, l aim to facilitate the exploration of personal issues enabling clients to break-free of destructive thoughts and behaviours. Helping clients to gain consciousness of their patterns or unresolved issues from the past and present and understanding the limiting beliefs we carry with us can lead to healing, growth and change.
Focusing on honesty and truth, I help clients achieve a deeper understanding of themselves leading to a more integrated sense of self and clearer direction in life. My intuitive and empathic qualities help clients to feel contained and understood. Insight achieved through the joint process builds self-awareness leading to renewed hope and transformation.
With a background in acting, marketing & PR, I can relate to issues within the creative and corporate professions such as realising self-worth, managing stress, work place bullying and life transitions. I also have an interest in relationship issues including co-dependency, love addiction and intimacy.
As a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), I work within their ethical framework. This means that I am bound by their code of conduct and ethics to assure that your therapy will be practiced to a highly professional standard.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I also work with issues of self-esteem, coming to terms with childhood issues including attachment and trauma, spiritual isssues and finding meaning and purpose in life.
From a more personal perspective, my British Asian ethnicity means that I am
able to work with conflicts related to culture, one's sense of belonging and identity.
Fees vary from £45 to £60 per 50-minute session, depending on time of day and location.
If this is the first time you are thinking about getting therapy, I understand that finding the right therapist can provoke anxiety. I am happy to answer any queries about the way I work and the process of therapy over the phone or usually during the initial assessment session before the therapeutic work begins.
