About Your Therapist
Anil setup his first therapy practice back in 1999 as a counsellor and hypnotherapist in the Midlands. In 2001 Anil became part owner of the natural healthcare centre a successful complementary health centre based in Burton Upon Trent.
Up until 2013 Anil ran his own successful full-time practice as a counsellor and hypnotherapist helping thousands of clients from all over the UK deal with issues such as anxiety, depression and stress. He then sold his business and moved to Abu Dhabi where he setup another counselling practice helping expats from around the world. This experience and knowledge gives Anil a firm understanding of the complex issues that individuals have to face on a daily basis.
Anil now runs two successful therapy practices one in Derby and one in Abu Dhabi. He shares his time between the two utilising online and face to face therapy where needed. Both practices allow for face to face or online therapy and some clients benefit from a mixture of both.
With over 20 years of experience Anil has found that his role as a counsellor is first and foremost to be there for the client and make sense of their distress and provide some way forward. To help the client to eventually become their own therapist.
Therapy is not a walk in the park and takes courage and commitment by both parties. These essential elements can aid the recovery for the client and make counselling a positive experience.
Over the years Anil has kept abreast of his own personal development and trained in several different psychological interventions. These include psychotherapy, cognitive behaviour therapy, couple counselling, hypnotherapy, coaching and mindfulness.
