Hello my name is Bhavna, thank you for visiting this page.

When you choose to have counselling with me, we will begin by exploring what your needs and expectations are from counselling at our first meeting - this enables us both to be sure that we can work powerfully and fruitfully together. Counselling is not about giving advice, instead, I see it as YOUR time to explore what YOU want or need to, in order to live a full and joy-filled life. To this end, I will be led by you, but will respectfully and gently challenge you to be your greatest possible Self.

A Little About Me:
I have been counselling for over 18 years and have worked with a diverse range of clients from around the world, of all ages between 11 to 92, presenting with a host of issues from day to day emotional issues, relationship counselling, anxiety, depression and panic to extreme trauma and bereavement. I am particularly interested in offering safe and accepting counselling support to the LGBT community as there is very little support for this community in Cornwall. There is little I have not heard of or worked with, so please be assured that I will not be shocked by anything you say nor judge you in any way. If for any reason we cannot work together, I will be happy to help you find other suitable support.

My Training:
I am an Integrative Humanistic Counsellor trained in a number of clinical approaches including Person-Centred Counselling, Psychodynamic, Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy, Brief Solution Focused Therapy and Transactional Analysis in order to tailor my counselling practice to your specific needs. I also incorporate approaches from Eastern Philosophy and other dynamic methods to help you get on with your life as quickly as possible and to help you to 'Just Be Yourself'. I currently work with clients based locally in the South West, around the UK and internationally and have flexible appointments to suit all.

I am BACP Accredited and qualified to a high level with an MSc in Counselling Psychology and a BSc (Hons) in Psychology. I am also a qualified Adult Educator with over 20 years of teaching experience in colleges across London and the South-West including Truro. Additionally, I work with a number of national and international EAPs and am a Critical Incident Debriefer with experience of working with individual workplace and major incidents including supporting rescue personnel and survivors after the London Bombings, survivors of the Rwandan Genocide and UK based families affected by the 9/11 tragedy in New York as well as supporting organisations, staff and families coping with fatalities in the workplace. I have extensive experience in the private, corporate and voluntary sector.

I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and am bound by their stringent codes of ethics and practice. I am also covered by insurance to practice and subscribe to ongoing professional develpment to enhance my clinical practice.

Please do visit my website for further information and to explore useful articles I have written on dealing with stress, anxiety, relationship issues, etc.

I offer individual and couples counselling sessions often within 48 hours.

My fees:

Each session (including the initial assessment) is 50 minutes long.

Daytime: 10.00 - 16.00 - £50.00

To book an appointment, just call!

Opening Times

Opening Times: 10.00-16.00 Monday to Thursday

Location Information

Location/Directions Info: I am based in the centre of Newquay, a few minutes from the town centre and within easy distance of Truro, Bodmin and St Austell. There are good transport links and ample parking in nearby streets and car parks. My premises are easy to find and in a safe location for darker evening appointments in winter etc.

I am sorry but I am unable to accommodate clients with mobility issues due to stairs leading to the counselling room.

Talking to a perfect stranger about myself was not easy initially but I realised very quickly that this agency really does believe that to Just Be Yourself is the way forward. My therapist’s warm and gentle presence gave me the confidence to be myself; I felt comfortable and relaxed and did not feel I was being judged, rather, I was being encouraged to express my innermost thoughts and feelings in a place of safety.
I would highly recommend this agency to anyone who needs help to move forward.

Bhavna is a warm, sincere and empathetic counsellor and person and I would highly recommend her. She made me feel like I didn’t have to struggle alone and that I am at all times allowed to be myself and tend to my needs at my own pace.
She made me feel like I am not crazy and actually a valuable person, who had very rational reasons for the difficulties I was going through and helped me with my mindset to get through them. while remaining sensitive to my personal style and interests.

I felt comfortable and safe; my therapist gave me the time and space to explore my thoughts and feelings and I really did believe that I could just be myself and that I was not being judged.

I would highly recommend this Agency.

My first meeting with Bhavna was when I was a student of Counselling & Psychology. I am in no doubt Bhavna’s subject knowledge, academic approach and insight contributed to my own BSc 1st Class Hons Degree. I was so impressed with Bhavna’s skills I subsequently requested her supervision. Just Be Yourself Counselling Practice offered me a confidential, non-judgemental, emphatic and respectful environment which allowed me to both accurately consider my own experiences whilst also facilitating personal and professional development. Should your concerns be historic or current, be as a result of life events or associated with poor mental health Just… Read more »

Bhavna has been an excellent support through a difficult period for me. She came highly recommended to me by a friend who was suffering a bereavement and relationship break up. I contacted her after a divorce and her absolute warmth and wisdom, really helped me to turn a corner. She is very open-minded and gently but firmly offers her support. I very much recommend you give her a try.

I had 6 sessions with Bhavna. I can’t thank her enough for all of her help and advice. The discussions were two way I felt for such a long time that I actually had a voice and I was being listened too. The sessions were fun as well at times hard for me to discuss issues that I felt difficult, but Bhavna has such a wonderful, calm and friendly way that I never felt ‘silly’ for showing my emotions.
I will take with me forever the wise words that Bhavna spoke. I can’t thank her enough.
