Offering You A Safe Place To Talk
At difficult times in our lives, a quiet, non-judgmental 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.
How I Work
The counselling that I provide is completely tailored and individual to the needs of my clients and so I offer either short-term or open-ended therapy. I am able to see clients in a private therapy room in Wraysbury.
My services start you on the path to wellness and the ability to cope with every day.
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.
“I am a qualified Consultative Supervisor having achieved my Diploma in Consultative Supervision in September 2022 and I have worked with groups (maximum 3 for 1.5 hours) and one to one supervisee’s. My supervisee’s have included trainee counsellors, volunteer befrienders, managers, and qualified counsellors. I can offer these sessions face to face as well as online.”

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.
I am qualified to work with adults and young people from 11 years old plus – I have a qualification with Metanoia Institute in working with adolescents in a school setting and currently have been working in a school for the last 4 years.
Because I love to see how my clients grow and change through the sessions and become the confident person, they want to be.
You may choose to engage in therapy for a huge variety of reasons, there is no right or wrong. Here are some examples of issues that my clients have brought to therapy:my different areas of practice I have particular experience and interest in the following:
- Relationship Counselling
- Stress & Anxiety
