My name is Nikita Amin and I am a fully qualified Counsellor based CBT and Counselling Gravesend. I am also a trainee Doctor in Counselling and Psychotherapy and a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). Upon completion of my doctorate I will also be UKCP and HCPC accredited.
I have been a practicing therapist for a number of years, providing therapy to both adults and children age 7+. My experience has been achieved through the voluntary sector (‘MIND’ and ‘NHS’). As well as within my own private practice and the ‘NHS IAPT’ (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies)
Child Counselling Gravesend
I am experienced in working with children and adolescent in both my private practice and within the ‘NHS CAMHS’ (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) My role is to offer support to young people for a wide range of difficult.s Such as bullying, self-harm, anxiety, low mood, relationship issues and familial difficulties.
I will adapt my style and therapy sessions depending on the age of your child and their individual needs. For younger children I may use Lego or colouring/drawing to help them feel more at ease when talking to me. For adolescents, I use a variety of methods, including talking therapy, art therapy, and occasionally, play therapy. I may also use worksheets or booklets for your child to take home/to school to work through.
Adult Counselling Gravesend
My aim is to provide a safe space, where we can work through any difficulties you might be having collaboratively. I will help you can gain more of an understanding of yourself and provide you with tools which you can use to move forward in your day to day life.
The foundation of my work is ‘Existential’. Which means I will help you face the anxieties of life, embracing your freedom of choice whilst taking responsibility for these choices. I will also support you trying to live more authentically by take ownership of your life. To hopefully find meaning and be present.
