''When I started counselling, I was nervous and seema made me feel relaxed straight away. I didn't expect to feel this comfortable. I made a joke about not needing any tissues and was shocked that I cried alot actually! As a guy, a tough one at that, I have never talked about the things that I shared with Seema and something just felt a bit different for me. I cant wait to have more sessions and see what the outcome for me will be''. Robert
I am a trained and certified counsellor, experienced in helping my clients improve their self esteem and have greater peace of mind. I have helped many people in my 10 years of working as a counsellor, deal better with thoughts, feelings and situations which they find difficult, challenging or even painful, allowing them to live fuller, happier lives.
My counselling approach is Person Centred, which means that I aim to create a safe, positive environment for the client so that they can live up to their potential for personal growth. My counselling technique involves using Psychodynamic Counselling, a form of in depth psychotherapy aimed at getting to root of the problem through bringing unconscious thoughts and feelings to conscious awareness. My counselling method also includes using Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, (CBT) Tension, Stress and Trauma Release Exercises, Motivational Interviewing and Life Coaching techniques. I work using an Intercultural approach, and always taking cultural and religious beliefs and values into consideration.
I am able to provide counselling and psychotherapy in three different languages: English, Hindi and Punjabi, and am a registered BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) member.
I offer face to face Counselling in 3 Locations: South Woodford and Rainham.

Do I need Counselling?
You might also hesitate to speak to people about how you are feeling or tell people what is going on? You might feel that no one would understand you or feel that you do not have anyone to talk to. So you try to deal with your emotions alone and experience feelings of isolation and loneliness.
Counselling can help with all these problems including: feeling alone, feeling like your life is meaningless and aimlessness, feeling tired and overwhelmed, feeling like you can’t cope, dealing with grief and loss, working through a divorce or dealing with relationship issues. You could benefit from a counselling session, a confidential place where you can share your thoughts and feelings. Everybody struggles with something in their life at some point, otherwise we wouldn't be human. We experience emotional difficulties, which can leave us feeling overwhelmed, scared or lost. This can affect the way in which we cope with life. It is often a relief to talk to an experienced professional who can listen in non judgemental and empathetic way.

I do offer a free No Obligation 15 minute telephone consultation for anybody who has any questions or feels unsure about whether counselling is for them.
