In my therapeutic journey, I've had the privilege of working both within the NHS and the private sector. This rich tapestry of experiences has exposed me to a diverse array of psychological presentations, allowing me to develop a profound understanding of the human experience. Specifically, I've delved into the intricate realms of bereavement and loss, collaborating with esteemed organisations like Cruise and the RNIB counselling services.
These varied experiences have woven together to form the fabric of my integrative approach. I strive to create a holistic environment that nurtures deep insight, fosters growth, facilitates healing, and instigates meaningful change. It's not just a profession for me; it's a journey of connection, understanding, and empowerment. I welcome you to embark on this journey with me, where we can navigate the complexities of life together.
Hello there, I'm AJ – a UKCP accredited Integrative Clinical Psychotherapist, I speak both english as my first language and Punjabi, and I bring more than just qualifications to the therapeutic space. Picture our sessions as a warm embrace, a sanctuary where your thoughts and feelings are not just heard but cherished.
Embarking on this journey, whether for short-term solutions or a more extended exploration, means stepping into a space where you are seen, understood, and valued. Holding an MSc with distinction, I offer a safe, judgment-free zone for both individuals and couples. Anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, and trauma find a compassionate ally in my practice, where we may also explore healing through EMDR.
My therapeutic approach is more than just a method; it's a commitment to understanding how early experiences shape our sense of self and influence our expectations. Within the safe haven of our sessions, we'll delve into the distress experienced in both mind and body, creatively managing and navigating your emotional landscape toward resilience and understanding.
I extend a heartfelt invitation to connect with me, providing support in English and Punjabi through in-person, phone, or online sessions. A free consultation awaits, addressing any concerns you may have. Currently pursuing a PhD at Edinburgh University, my dedication to research is a testament to tailored support, particularly for those from BAME and diverse cultural backgrounds.
In my 12-year tenure as an Optometrist, I've cultivated a unique perspective from personal engagements within the medical field. This distinctive foundation seamlessly integrates techniques from both the medical and therapeutic realms, enriching the support I offer clients on their unique journeys.
