About Me

Hi, my name is Dr Vanita, I am a therapist and I have a PhD in Psychology. I completed my therapy training in 2012 and have been practising therapy since. With 10 years of experience along with my research supporting my practice I can offer a therapeutic service that is tailored to your needs.

I have worked on issues that involve significant life changes including: changing schools/areas, marriage, having a baby, bereavement/loss, breakdown of relationships, etc. Other areas of expertise include working with anxiety, panic, stress, low mood, depression, building resilience and preparing for significant changes.

I am focused on delivering a professional, empathic and proactive service with a strong belief in confidentiality and respectfulness in a non-judgemental and safe environment.
