My name is Kimcha Rajkumar. I am a psychotherapist and a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I hold a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from the Minster Centre in London, an MA from Middlesex University in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling and an MA in Graduate Liberal Studies from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada.
My training is integrative and relational. ‘Integrative’ means that I incorporate understandings drawn from several schools of psychotherapy (the humanistic, existential, psychodynamic and somatic) into the way I work. I believe that each one of us is unique, so I tailor my approach to meet your individual needs.
Working ‘relationally’ reflects my belief that we evolve through relationship. It is in relationship that we learn how safe it is to be in the world, what we can expect from others, and how to relate to our own needs. The therapeutic relationship offers us a chance to discover not just who you’ve become, but a safe space to try out new ways of being.
Before becoming a psychotherapist I worked in the Arts, Educational and Charitable sectors, and once ran my own jewellery studio. I have lived in several countries, am of dual heritage and bring all these diverse experiences to the way I work. I am deeply committed to honouring the diversity of humankind. I offer an LGBTQ inclusive space.
