Dr Daljit Sandhu- Clinical Psychologist
Daljit has over 20 years of experience working therapeutically with individuals, families and other professionals. She has experience of supporting people in challenging circumstances and working effectively with people who may have had previous difficulty in trusting and engaging with professionals and services. On a personal and professional level, she has a deep commitment to on-going learning and development to effectively support clients in making transformative life changes.
Therapies offered by Daljit:
Daljit can draw on a range of different models of psychotherapy including cognitive, behavioural, psychodynamic and systemic to understand problems from multiple perspectives. She works in collaboration with clients to integrate and adapt approaches to the unique needs of each individual or family.
She has additional training in EMDR and experience of working with individuals who have experienced trauma and abuse, as well as early attachment difficulties. Daljit is undergoing further training in Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (EDT) – an intensive and focused therapeutic approach which is highly effective in producing deep levels of therapeutic change.
Daljit also has a long-standing interest in the link between the mind and body and holistic approaches which support both physical health and psychological well-being. She has recently completed her tai chi teacher training and is able to draw on this alongside her knowledge and experience of mindfulness and yoga, to support and enhance clients’ overall health and well-being. Body based approaches are also particularly useful for people who have difficulty in connecting with their traumatic or emotional experiences and in cases where there are issues in relation to pain and/or physical functioning.
Daljit's approach to working with you
“I have genuine pleasure in supporting people to discover their potential and fully engage with life. I understand this can challenging at times and do not underestimate the courage and commitment it takes to dare for something different. I look forward to working together to help you to step out of the shadows and reconnect with yourself, others and life.”

Essential to our success working with people experiencing psychological distress, including those who have survived multiple traumas, are our skills for assessing psychological capacity moment by moment; with highly focused attention to, and attunement with the person’s embodied experience of anxiety and emotion, and their unique use of behavioural and linguistic coping strategies. This caring and precise attention to sub-conscious cues allows us to ensure that people remain within their capacity for growth whilst experiencing deep emotional connection with their authentic selves.
Why consider therapeutic work at all?
Because emotional pain is as legitimate as physical pain, and dealing with your emotional pain sometimes requires assistance from another. Because your mind and body are inexorably linked, what affects your mind will affect your physical health and what affects your body will affect your mental health. Because you can spend years reliving and re-experiencing the same problems over and over again, particularly in your close relationships. Because the progress you can make with professional help is generally much quicker than attempting to cope alone; sometimes by a matter of years.
I’ve been looking at a number of therapists, how do I choose which one to see?
Generally there are two main factors related to successful therapy. The first is the quality of the relationship between the therapist and the person seeking assistance. Without a good therapeutic relationship, it is unlikely that therapeutic interventions will be effective. Therefore, it is important you choose somebody that you feel comfortable with. To do this, you may decide to contact or see a number of therapists before committing to one.
The second factor relates to professional competence and the degree to which they have invested the time and energy it requires to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to help those seeking therapy. To gauge this, it is advisable to read what they have to say, contact them with any questions you have, and ensure they are professionally registered.
