Rajni (Integrative Counsellor)
I qualified as an Integrative therapist in 2012. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy [BACP] and am currently working towards BACP accreditation.
During my training I gained experience working for a counselling agency where I took specific training to be able to help people work through traumatic experiences, anxiety, depression and exam stress. I have also worked at a local bereavement charity for 8 years. My work here involved conducting clinical assessments, providing bereavement counselling and facilitating a monthly support group for survivors of bereavement by suicide.
I believe that everyone’s past has the power to dictate the impact of what happens in the present. An insightful & respectful approach to counselling can bring immediate relief simply by initially feeling that you are being heard and understood by somebody. This is an important first step before any client & counsellor get into working through deeper, perhaps more distressing issues.
My approach is to assist clients with coming to terms with their individual feelings in a way that makes sense to them and empowers them heal from experiences at their own pace.
