Offering You A Safe Place To TALK
At difficult times in our lives, a quiet, non-judgemental space with a counselling professional can offer a unique solution. Investing in your health and well-being is so important both for you and for those around you. My services start you on the path to wellness and the ability to cope with every day.
CBT can help us make changes in the way we think and the way we act. A popular therapy used in many circumstances.
Talking to a Counsellor helps people to explore their feelings and emotions and to move forward with the decisions that they make for their lives
Awareness of ourselves and the world around us – mindfulness – can improve our mental wellbeing. Especially useful in helping cope with our busy lives.
A way of understanding people's behaviour patterns, and then influencing their behaviour.
My name is Anjula, and I qualified in 2003 originally in Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling, which simply means that I combine a number of approaches – Humanistic, Psychodynamic, CBT and solution focused therapies.
HOW DO I KNOW I AM CHOOSING THE RIGHT COUNSELLOR FOR ME?
A therapist should start and finish the session appropriately. Discuss any changes in fee, session times or the duration of therapy respectfully. A therapist must show empathy.
A therapist should be non-judgemental, able to hear whatever you are saying, be understanding and receptive.
The client should feel supported and accompanied on their journey without judgement or direction or advice (therapy is not about being told what to do).
Feeling like you are being understood is important, and you should feel your counsellor is helping you understand what he/she means giving you the time to explore your understanding.
The client must feel safe and able to trust that the therapist will observe confidentiality as assured under the Protection Act. A client can assure themselves of this by choosing a therapist who is registered through a known counselling or psychotherapy organisation such as the BACP/UKCP/CPJA/BPS.
By taking the first step. Either fill out the contact form and I will respond as soon as I can, or pick up the phone and call me. You will find me very approachable.
Therapy helps clients uncover strengths and learn new skills that will allow them to deal with the challenges that arise in life.
After a discussion with you, by phone, I will be able to schedule in your first appointment. After our meeting, we will work out a treatment and care plan specifically for you.
