Vrinda Sharma, MBACP (Islington, London)
Specialising in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Solution Focused Psychotherapy, I enable individuals to navigate difficult emotions such as anxiety, depression & work related stress, and to unlock their full potential in their work and personal life.
My working framework is not tied to a single theoretical school or perspective. Instead, I use an integrative approach, employing a variety of techniques to respond to the needs and preferences of individual clients. My working model ranges from Solution-Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to mindfulness meditation. Unlike traditional forms of therapy that often concentrate on past life events, I believe in helping clients find solutions in the present. I enable clients identify their blind spots, helping them gain new perspective on their problems in order to reach their potential.
I have extensive experience of helping clients with issues such as work related anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, phobias, family issues, depression & separation and divorce.
I initially studied law at university and a BCL and MPhil in law from the University of Oxford. My legal career began at the law firm Slaughter and May, where I gained first-hand experience of the extreme pressures and anxiety that can come with working at one of the top corporate law firms in the UK.
My experience prompted me to research latest theories in psychology and neuroscience, which inspired me to enrol in a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of East London. I now support people from a wide variety of backgrounds, including professionals, freelancers and entrepreneurs, in navigating similar challenges in their work and personal life.
I abide by the ethical framework of the BACP, am committed to my Continuous Professional Development and am subject to supervision.
My practice is located in Islington, London. I also offer Skype sessions.
Please contact me to arrange a complimentary initial telephone or Skype consultation for further details.

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.
