About me

                            *****LAST REMAINING APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE*****

Hi, I am a male therapist serving the Luton and Dunstable area, I am willing to work weekends, evenings and unsociable hours. I am bi-lingual (English and Punjabi). I am warm, compassionate and non-judgemental.

My professional orientation is psychodynamic, phenomenological and existential. I feel motivated towards this approach as I believe it encourages the experience of life as a unique individual. This philosophical approach often encompasses a journey of personal exploration and growth that seeks to assist individuals in finding the answers for themselves.

Within my practice, I offer a formal and professional relationship that is integrated and authentic. This service is confidential and attempts to accommodate individuals with ways of working which can encourage the development of self-awareness and self-responsibility. My personal philosophy incorporates the provision of a safe environment from which individuals can explore their thoughts, emotions, experiences and perceptions within framework of acceptance.

I have experience of assisting with Anxiety, phobias, depression, addiction and many other areas of distress. I have previous experience of working at a residential rehabilitation centre and I am fully aware of modern addiction treatment methods. I like to introduce existential and spiritual aspects within my practice. Mindfulness and physical wellbeing are cornerstones upon which I build my practice.
