About me

Vinita Latham

Break free from emotional pain - gain insight - find answers - move forward.

Hi, my name is Vinita and I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist and counsellor. I provide professional counselling and am based in Bolton.

Life can be difficult and there are many reasons why we may feel stuck in a negative downward spiral. Depression and anxiety can overwhelm our ability to find anything positive in life. We may struggle with self-criticism that undermines our ability to move forward. External events beyond our control may negatively impact on our sense of well-being.

You may feel that things will never change - that you see no light at the end of the tunnel.

Therapy is a way to find insight and understanding into what may be troubling you which may stem from the here and now or have arisen from the past.

One of the most effective ways to understand why we may be experiencing problems is to consider how all parts of our lives both past and present have brought us to where we are now.

Gaining awareness into how difficult life experiences may be impacting on present-day issues can help bring clarity and understanding and offer a way forward to promoting positive change.

I work from a humanistic perspective and combine a Person-Centred approach with other modalities working with clients to find an approach that best suits them. Essentially this means that as a client, therapy moves in the direction and pace that feels most comfortable for you.

I regard everyone I work with as an individual with their own unique experiences. You know yourself better than anyone else does and I see my role as working collaboratively with you focusing on your issues, needs and concerns.          Integral to my approach as a therapist are my own personal life experiences which fundamentally inform the way I work.

Therapy can be a way to bring about positive change empowering us to find our own answers and free us from the things that are holding us back.

I offer a calm safe space where I would like you to feel as comfortable and welcome as possible. To support change I provide a therapeutic relationship which is respectful, empathic and non-judgemental where you can talk freely and be heard

     This can help you:

  •       identify what may be troubling you
  •       acknowledge, validate and release your feelings
  •       reduce confusion and become clearer about your way forward
  •       explore the anxieties and fears that are concerning you
  •       work at your own pace exploring how you would like things to be different

As a therapist working for a counselling service, I work with clients (currently online) experiencing diverse issues ranging from relationship difficulties, depression, anxiety, family issues and bereavement to unresolved past events and difficulties stemming from childhood.

     People seek counselling for many different reasons which may include:

  •       depression
  •       anxiety
  •       self-hate, worthlessness, low self-esteem
  •       self-harm
  •       anger- towards self or others
  •       loneliness, grief, loss
  •       confusion, uncertainty, desperation, fear
  •       living in an abusive relationship – psychological abuse, physical abuse
  •       experiencing addiction - alcohol, eating disorder, drugs
  •       obsessive-compulsive tendencies
  •       work concerns
  •       sexual identity
  •       family break-up
  •       issues stemming from childhood
  •       post-traumatic stress disorder

I specialise in working with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and loss to relationships that are challenging or difficult and issues stemming from childhood. I have a Masters degree in psychotherapy and counselling where I focused my research on the long-term impact of emotional abuse experienced during childhood.                                                                 Research has clearly shown that issues originating in childhood can negatively impact on many areas of life into adulthood.

I have a private practice where I offer both short-term counselling and more long-term psychotherapy for adults struggling with problems that may be negatively impacting on quality of life.

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.
