My name is Chandrayee Basu and I am a qualified and experienced counsellor/psychotherapist. I am a registered member of The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and have my private practice in South West London. I cover the areas of Southfields, Earlsfield, Wimbledon,Wandsworth, SW18 & SW19. I abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice http://www.bacp.co.uk/prof_conduct/ and I am part of the BACP National Register, the first psychological therapists’ register to be accredited under a new scheme set up by the Department of Health.
I have a Masters Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Roehampton University. For nearly 13 years I have been helping men, women and couples make a real difference to their lives. For 10 years, I worked in a Women’s Centre in Kingston Upon Thames, counselling women from different cultures who were in crisis and a period of change, and have over 10 years experience at Wimbledon Guild http://www.wimbledonguild.co.uk/, working as a counsellor with people suffering from stress, depression, anxiety and other forms of mental distress.
My approach is Integrative, and I tailor my model to suit the client’s needs. I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person Centered Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy in my method of work. I also use creative tools like art, working with dreams and visualisation. I have substantial experience in helping people understand and consequently improve their self-worth.
I have my own experience of engaging in personal counselling which has been essential for my own personal development in order to work effectively with clients. I engage in monthly clinical supervision with a trained supervisor. This helps ensure that I am working ethically and effectively with my clients.
I can also offer counselling in Hindi and Bengali.
