I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor (Accredited Member of British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapists, UKRCP Registered Independent Counsellor) and adhere to the guidelines of their code of ethics, good practice and am bound by its ethical framework for good practice in counselling and Psychotherapy.
All my sessions are confidential and have experience in working with clients from a great diversity of backgrounds with many differing needs and requirements while working for; Brent Mind (a mental health charity), the Place 2Be (working with children and young people), a Women's Centre and other agencies.

I have worked as a counsellor/therapist for agencies specialising in areas such as: long term mental health problems, struggle with paranoia, severe anxiety, stress, panic attacks, couples counselling (or relationship therapy), low self-esteem, compulsive behaviours, bereavement, eating disorders, childhood trauma, domestic abuse, depression, self harm, anger management, cultural issues, cross cultural relationships, living with an extended family, supporting carers, relationship between young adults and their parents, coping with separation and divorce, letting go of past, affairs and betrayals and more....
I offer counselling/therapy sessions in English and Gujarati.
Seeking counselling help in many cultures can be difficult. I am able to offer Asian counselling, and am also a Gujarati counsellor.
I believe in working together and am a great believer in valuing, respecting and accepting each and every clients regardless of their cultural background. Whilst working for Mind, a Women's Centre, Place2Be and other agencies, I have gained experience in working with clients from a great diversity of backgrounds. These backgrounds included British, Asian, Indian, Turkish, Muslim, Pakistani, Punjabi, Jamaican, Irish and more.
We find it difficult to trust people. At times, we try to put on a brave face, ignore the problems and simply hope and pray they will disappear.
We tend to feel ashamed or embarrassed to discuss these issues with others and we may end up suffering even more because of it. These issues can be very sensitive, difficult and stressful and can also leave us feeling as though we are not worthy and that we are all alone. This can subsequently lead to depression, relationship difficulties, low self esteem, mental instability and the inability to enjoy our lives.
The struggles we face vary from time to time and from person to person. To one, a specific problem can seem very small, however to another the same problem may seem impossible to cope with. Seeking help can often seem daunting, especially when considering pride and being seen by family or friends. Sometimes it can seem easier to simply close our eyes and pretend everything is fine.
The problems we face may seem immense and impossible to overcome. This does not have to be the case however, as there are many ways which can help ease some difficulties and take away some of the pressures, stress and anxiety. One well known method is called counselling.
Counselling is a form of psychological therapy, often known as ‘talking therapy’. It is a method involving expressing and exploring feelings and coming to terms with the problems and then finding better ways of coping. See counselling page for more information.

Comments from my former clients:
"I decided I needed to see a counsellor when my anxiety and panic attacks started to become more frequent and started to affect my everyday day life. I was starting to hate everything around me and had lost my inner happiness. I am so happy that I came across Kantas' profile who was able to understand and relate to many of my anxieties. She was very patient and honest and never pushed me out of my comfort zone. I found it easy to talk to her and she helped me to control these anxieties as well as build on my confidence and self respect. Now many of my relationships around me are blossoming and I am able to slowly gain back control of my mind and my life. Thank you Kanta for your time and advice, something that will always be invaluable to me."
