Welcome 

Hello, my name is Roshmi and welcome to my website. 
 
Life can be tough. It can throw us curve balls. Whilst most of us would like to stay on the positive end of the emotional spectrum, there are times when we are drawn into feelings of negativity, either about ourselves, about others, or about the world we live in. Sometimes this is due to a significant event in our lives, or sometimes because we have reached a stage where we no longer feel happy with the way our life is going. 

My Space 

Every day in my therapy room, I work with people who are suffering. Some are stuck, others lost and confused. Many feel that circumstances or relationships have taken them so far away from being someone whom they still recognise. Words I often hear are 'alone' and 'empty'. Most of us want to make changes, but few are able to see these changes through. 
I offer a warm, colourful, welcoming and creative space: my first floor studio on Olney High Street. Within the physical space I offer an emotional space – one which is safe, contained, confidential and clearly boundaried. And then there is the space within myself: one which has the capacity to receive and hold whatever material you feel you wish to bring to me; one which has the depth to walk alongside you as you explore new paths. 
 
 

Your Space 

By coming to therapy, you have already chosen to give yourself some space, away from the everyday things in your life. That’s already a massive step. Most people find it really hard to make that first move. Once you’re here, this becomes your space. You choose how to use it, and what to bring into it. 
You can use the space to talk about your thoughts, feelings and experiences. You can explore and reflect upon your life situation. I will listen - without judging - and help you to express yourself to the fullest. Sometimes a few sessions of brief counselling is enough to help you move forward. Sometimes, longer term psychotherapy is needed to explore and work through underlying issues, like low self worth or difficuties in relationship. Within the space there is the opportunity for you to use creative techniques which can deepen our shared understanding of your experience. Whatever you do here, it's always your choice. 
 

Our Space 

Research suggests that one of the key elements of effective therapy is the therapeutic relationship itself. I believe that without a strong working therapeutic relationship, the work of therapy is peripheral. Working with the space between us and within the relationship makes the issues come to life in the therapy, and gives us a real opportunity to work in a deep and detailed way. 
 
 

Is this for you? 

Some of the things people say in their first session: 
 
"I feel I can’t get myself out of first gear" 
"I can’t remember the last time I really enjoyed anything" 
"I feel so angry all the time, and it’s just not me – I don’t do anger" 
"I’ve got this great life, so I shouldn’t be feeling so awful" 
"I feel like the world is going on around me, and I’m just watching" 
"When I cried this week and people asked me what’s wrong, I didn’t know what to say or how to describe it" 
"Our relationship has gone downhill since…" 
"I’ve tried counselling before, but kept going round in circles. I don’t know how talking about it helps" 
"I don’t know when I stopped being myself" 
This is just a selection, but if any of these sentiments resonate with you, you may benefit from sessions of counselling or psychotherapy with me. Sessions will help you address your own unique experience of what you are struggling with.
