Dr Darshan Kaur, Clinical Psychologist
Since qualifying as a Clinical Psychologist in 2014, I have worked in the NHS, and more recently I have set up my own private practice. Throughout this time I have worked with many individuals, couples and families during their times of struggle. I have had the opportunity to learn about the human mind and behaviour. I feel I have gained insight into how we can live lives that enable us to thrive and reach our potential.
The struggles I have encountered in my own personal life, such as dealing with bereavement, navigating the challenges of married life, learning to be a mother for the first time, and then again for the second, have helped me to learn first-hand how difficult life can be. I know what it feels like to become overwhelmed by emotions, and stuck in unhelpful patterns. I too have struggled with emotional ups and downs, feelings of inadequacy and difficulties dealing with the loss of loved ones that you may have experienced.
I have found that working my way through personal struggles has helped me a better therapist as it has given me first-hand experience of learning to apply the methods and techniques that I share with my clients.
I believe that the difficulties that we encounter in life can help to shine a light on the areas of our life that are not working for us and give us an opportunity to do something different. I would be honoured to support you through this process.
