Neha’s approach to Couples Counselling

Neha creates a safe and empathetic environment so her clients can feel heard, respected and supported. She uses the Gottman Method of Therapy, which draws on over four decades of research, to assist couples in building stronger and deeper emotional connection.

Her approach aims to improve couples’ communication skills by fostering constructive conflict resolution strategies and reinforcing positive interactions to counteract negative behaviours that could harm the relationship. She helps couples recognise negative communication patterns and behaviours and works with them to develop new skills, including active listening, effective expression of needs and feelings, and taking personal responsibility for their own actions.

Additionally, Neha offers assessments and interventions to help couples work through specific issues such as infidelity, trust concerns, and sexual problems.

Neha tailors her approach to meet the unique needs and circumstances of each couple, and her ultimate goal is to help guide couples to a safe, secure and connected place in their relationship.

The process of couples counselling typically involves 12-24 sessions.

"We're so fortunate to have found Neha! After having little success with other couple’s therapists we’ve been able to uncover and understand the patterns in our relationship on a deeper level. Neha is extremely knowledgeable, empathetic, perceptive and supportive. She digs deep to help you understand yourself better so you can build more positive ways forward. We would highly recommend Neha to any couples wanting to improve their connection, work through issues, and ultimately create a strong, positive and more fulfilling relationship."

Individual Counselling

Neha’s approach to Individual Counselling

Neha offers a safe and supportive environment for all her clients to explore their concerns and work towards their personal goals. She uses a combination of psychodynamic and person centred therapy, which means she explores the unconscious thoughts, emotions, and past experiences that influences a person’s behaviour and relationships.

Neha helps her clients identify their strengths and works with them to develop coping skills to tackle difficult emotions and situations. She believes that self awareness and self compassion are essential for personal growth and healing and encourages her clients to cultivate a greater understanding of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours while fostering a kinder more accepting approach towards themselves.

She also empowers clients with resources and assignments between sessions to achieve their goals.

Psychodynamic therapy typically involves regular sessions spanning over a period of weeks, months or years depending on the individual’s specific needs.

"I have been working with Neha on and off now for a couple years and her methods, knowledge and ability to understand complex situations and challenges is incredible. She has helped me navigate multiple challenges in my life and without her guidance I would have been lost and in a poor mental state. Can’t thank her enough for all she has done for me!"

"I have been working with Neha since December 2022 for couples counselling and personal counselling. Neha is empathetic, kind and very professional. She has really helped us resolve ongoing issues and move forward together as a couple. Neha creates a safe space for discussion with no judgement and uses her extensive experience to gently provide practical advice that we can work on after every session. I highly recommend Neha and am very grateful for the positive changes she has encouraged in our live so far."
