Kimcha RajkumarIntegrative psychotherapist
I am a psychotherapist working both privately and in specialist community mental health organisations. I can offer support for dealing with a wide variety of issues including:
· Loss and bereavement
· Relationship difficulties or breakdown
· Family issues
· Childhood abuse
· Lack of confidence or low self esteem
· Workplace and business problems
· Issues of identity including gender and cultural identity
· Coming out issues
· Chronic illness
I hold a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from Minster Centre, London, an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling from Middlesex University and an MA in Graduate Liberal Studies from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. As part of my training I engaged in my own personal therapy for over 10 years and so am intimately aware of what it is like to be a client.
As Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) I abide by their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
Working integratively means that I take the whole person into account. Attending to the experience of the body, mind and heart encourages wellbeing. Likewise, looking at our past can help us understand our present, which in turn can empower us to make choices about the kind of future we want.
I work relationally, which means that I believe the relationship between client and therapist is of utmost importance. A warm, safe and trusting relationship provides a base from which to explore whatever it is that brings you to therapy.
Looking for a therapist is a daunting task. It’s a brave step, talking someone you don’t know about the intimate parts of your life, your fears, your grief, thoughts or habits that are holding you back. I recognise this and deeply respect the step you are taking.
