I recognise that while the issues we deal with as humans are universal, each person is unique in how they experience them. Therefore, our work will focus on how you're affected by 'depression' or how you experience 'anxiety', words that are commonly thrown around but may mean any number of things to each person.
Our work will involve exploring the issue/s that brings you to therapy and help you deepen your understanding of your dilemma. You might find new ways of understanding your life, and uncover possibilities that you may not have known before. I offer a space which is open, non-judgemental, empathic and through the tools of curiosity and compassion, we undertake a process of exploration and discovery.
I combine evidence-based techniques with more creative, experiential methods, such as mindfulness and meditation to help individuals gain clarity and insight into their issues. The philosophies and theories that guide my practice include Gestalt and Existential approaches, Jungian Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
As your therapist, I bring forward a way of working with you that suits your unique strengths and capabilities in the world. It is my hope that, throughout our work, you are felt deeply listened to and understood in order that you can do the same for yourself. I believe that therapy can be empowering, healing and transformative, and I work collaboratively with my clients to help them find their own answers and create lasting change. Together, we will explore your inner world and work towards creating a life that is meaningful, fulfilling, and joyful.
My name is Jinny Gupta (UKCP, MBACP) and I am a psychotherapist with a private practice in West London, offering therapy to adults both online and in-person. I have a special interest in working with individuals suffering from anxiety, depression and issues concerning relationships, work and spirituality.
I completed my training at Regent's University, London in UKCP accredited Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy (ADIP). My work is informed by Gestalt, Jungian and CBT approaches, with a focus on what is happening in the here-and-now.
In addition to running a private practice, I provide clinical supervision to trainee psychotherapists at Headstrong Counselling in London. I also offer therapeutic support to NHS and frontline workers. I trained as a Mindfulness and Meditation teacher (in the Rinzai Zen tradition through Zenways), and offer courses tailored to needs and specificities of the individual and group.
In the past, I have worked in various mental-health settings such as West London NHS Trust (WLNT), MIND-Hammersmith and Fulham, Ealing Abbey Counselling Service (EACS) and West London Centre for Counselling (WLCC). Prior to this, I worked as an Economist and Healthcare advisor for more than a decade with the government and private sectors in India, Malawi and Iceland.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
