About me

Hello, I’m Ranjeet! I completed my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Oxford University, and have over 10 years of experience working with mental health, with over 6 years of experience working in the NHS.

I now specialise in working with adults and young adults with a range of mental health difficulties or difficulties impacted by difficult relationships/family dynamics. I particularly focus on working with South Asian’s, due to my own experiences of growing up as a British Panjabi.

As a psychologist, I am warm, flexible and compassionate, and I aim to get to know you and work at a pace that suits you. I work in an integrative, formulation-driven way, which means at the start of therapy we build a formulation together, which helps us understand what has led to some of the difficulties you might be having and what might be keeping the difficulties going. Integrative means I combine parts from a range of therapeutic approaches to match your needs.

I work with a range of difficulties including anxiety, depression, experiences of trauma, low self-esteem, eating difficulties, OCD, and grief. You might not have a “goal” for therapy; you might just know you aren’t happy right now and you want to find a way to live a life you value. I’m happy to talk through this with you in an initial consultation, to figure out if therapy may be helpful for you!

I’ll always approach your journey with kindness, compassion and warmth, and make therapy a positive (and sometimes challenging) process!

My speciality is in offering culturally-sensitive therapy; I work with people from a range of backgrounds to think about how family dynamics, cultural expectations, or experiences like racism impact you. I also specialise in offering; CBT, Acceptance and commitment therapy, Compassion focussed therapy and family therapy.

I know starting therapy is a big step, but meeting a therapist you click with makes a big difference and most people tend to feel pleased they took the leap. If you think I might be the right fit for you, please do book an initial consultation call and I would be happy to talk with you.
