My approach to psychoanalysis is integrative and relational. Working in an embodied way, I value and respect the individual as a whole; body mind and soul.
I feel the therapeutic relationship is vital for change and transformation so I seek to create a space where the clients feelings and experiences can be explored through a collaborative process.
People seek counselling & psychotherapy for many different reasons. Some want support through difficult experiences in life, both past and present, some may want to feel more alive and gain a better understanding of themselves.
I offer a confidential, compassionate and safe space where we can get to know your issues and begin to facilitate change.
I have worked with adults and young people within educational and therapeutic settings for over fifteen years. My approach is trauma-informed and relational exploring alongside you your past and present, your patterns of relating, thoughts, feelings and bodily experience. Together we create a space safe for you to look in and experience yourself and gather the awareness and strength to make the changes you hope for.
I work mindfully of cultural diversity, beliefs and values and am experienced working in areas including anxiety and depression, family and relationships, gender, sexual and relationship diversity, disability, learning differences and neurodiversity and health conditions.
It is not easy to make the decision to come to therapy and recognising that you need help is an important first step. I'm qualified, BACP registered and experienced.

I believe that therapy is a collaborative partnership and that a steady, warm and containing presence will facilitate your growth and will help you to optimise strengths that you already have. Please access my website and to learn more about how I work. Thank you!
I am a registered and accredited psychotherapist with over 10 years' experience of working in the NHS. My approach is psychodynamic: this entails longer term work that seeks to get to the root of the problem rather than focus on surface symptoms.
I am registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council (Registration No. 22112), the BACP (Membership No. 00920423), the Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists (Membership No. 33016) and also the NCS (Membership No. 18-06738). I welcome enquiries from young adults struggling with life pressures and the stress of GCSEs, A levels and University.
I am a qualified Humanistic Integrative counsellor PG.Dip (MBACP) and have experience of working with clients with a range of difficulties.
Every person is unique, so I take an individual approach with each client. I believe counselling is a truly collaborative process, so we will work together to make sense of your difficulties and find ways for you to live your life in the most meaningful way possible.
I work with clients of all ages, backgrounds and experiences and I welcome anyone to get in touch about working together.
Alongside my private practice, I see clients in a charity / NHS setting. I also have experience working in a bereavement counselling service.
My choice to see clients at Aashna was driven by the ethos to embrace difference and diversity in all its forms. I think at times when we are struggling to make sense of things in our lives that are causing us distress the desire to hide can be strong and this can feel unfulfilling. Grappling with the decision to start therapy or not can be difficult - I provide a space where the richness of our experiences and the struggle to make sense of our difficulties can be can be explored in a compassionate, confidential and collaborative way.
As an integrative therapist I am trained to work across several different modalities meaning that in our sessions together I will utilise what is required based on your individual needs and what suits our therapeutic relationship. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am bilingual speaking both English and Turkish.
I know how hard it can be to reach out when you need help. A problem can become so large that it takes over most of your life. It can be something from the past or a current situation that you can't move beyond. Whether its depression, anxiety, abuse, trauma, bereavement, stress or a relationship breaking down, you feel stuck and overwhelmed. Maybe you simply know that something needs to change, but don’t know how to make that happen.
I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist and counsellor, trained in a number of different approaches. I will work with you however you feel and with whatever you bring, developing the insight that will enable change. I don't expect you to fit the therapy; I expect it to fit you and will create an intervention based upon your specific needs. I always work with respect and compassion.
I am an integrative therapist, warm, kind and easy to talk to. I provide a safe, non-judgemental space where we can explore any struggles you may be experiencing so that you can live with a greater sense of well being and self-conﬁdence.
I work Relationally, which means that I consider the relationship between us to be a key part of the therapy; and from an embodied position, which means I work with the whole person - mind, body and spirit. This enables me to work flexibly and holistically and to adapt my approach to meet different individual's needs as necessary.
Hello, I am Rupa a fully qualified counsellor and a registered member of the BACP. My hope is for us to work together to discover the changes important to you, by prioritising your own needs and well-being. Working collaboratively to discover new ways of managing which are unique to you. Many clients I see feel emotionally overwhelmed which impacts their mental and physical health. Managing alone can be extremely challenging and draining.
Counselling can offer relief from the intensity of what you are carrying. A chance to release whatever you are holding in a safe and confidential space. Time dedicated solely to you, a place to lean into, learn new ways of coping, and regain stability. My key areas of interest are in supporting adults in recovery from substance misuse and working with carers who are struggling due to the demands of their role. Please visit my website for more information.
I am a UKCP registered integrative psychotherapist, and have worked in the voluntary sector and private practice for over 20 years. Choosing a therapist can be confusing and I hope that this will give you a sense of my approach. People seek therapy for different reasons, anxiety and depression are the two most common, but these can be set off by life events which were beyond our control. I offer a confidential space in which to share, explore and work with whatever you bring, without judgement.
Therapy will support you in developing a greater understanding and awareness of states of mind or patterns of behaviour which feel out of your control, and help you to feel empowered enough to change them. As a psychotherapist from a relational integrative training, I draw my understanding from different approaches, using our working relationship, talking, imagery and the mind/body connection, as essential elements to the process of change.
I am a State Registered Integrative Arts Therapist and a full member of the Health & Care Profession Council, HCPC Reg. No. AS00178. I have worked for over 25 years with adults, children and young people. I offer individual sessions to adults of all ages, children and young people as well as parent-child interaction therapy. I trained as an Arts Therapist (Music) where I completed an MA in Therapy in Special Education (City University) as well as Integrative Art Psychotherapist (PCIT) at the Institute for Arts and Therapy in Education (IATE). I am a fully qualified Complementary Health therapist, a full member of CThA (Reg. No P68943) and Holistic Pulsing Practitioner (http://www.pulsing.org.uk/find-a-practitioner). My therapeutic approach combines knowledge of attachment and developmental trauma, integrating gentle bodywork and art forms to facilitate insights around healthy inter and intra personal relationships and experiencing the freedom to make choices. I consider this approach as a healing path for depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, helping people to feel connected. An important part of my work is awareness of diversity, incorporating the richness of different cultures, noticing what arises within client and therapist as co-creators to enable acceptance and growth.
You’re confident, ambitious, and there for others. People think that you lead a great life, but it doesn’t always feel that way to you.
You have lots to be grateful for, but something doesn’t feel quite right. There’s a discomfort in your mind and body. Maybe you don’t feel good enough – as a parent, partner, or human being.
Despite ignoring it and carrying on, questions remain, and something has prompted you to seek help in finding answers. You want to be more relaxed and peaceful – to embrace life.
The discomfort often results from a difficult childhood and/or traumatic life events, which negatively affect self-esteem and confidence.
As a BACP registered integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, I’ll walk with you through the discomfort. We can search for the answers to your questions together online or face to face.
Get in touch for an initial chat – I look forward to connecting.
