Professional Profile

My name is Raj and I am a fully qualified and BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist working with Think CBT from my consulting rooms in Crawley, West Sussex. I also provide CBT online via Skype and video-link.

I appreciate that finding a therapist can be challenging, I hope my profile gives a flavour of how I work but do feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I am compassionate, honest, sensitive and down to earth in my approach. I have over 15 years’ experience working in mental health from secondary care services, the past 11 years I have worked in my local Improving Access to Psychologies Therapies (IAPT) Service in the NHS.

I completed Post-Graduate training in 2009 as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner, working in one of the highest performing psychological therapies service in the country. This approach helped clients use guided-self-help based on CBT. Following on from this, I completed CBT training at the University of Surrey, I am a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with full accreditation with the BABCP. I treat clients with a range of difficulties including Anxiety and Depression in the NHS.

I specialise in helping people experiencing Depression and Anxiety disorders; specifically, Panic Disorder, Specific Phobias, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Social Anxiety and Generalised Anxiety Disorder. My clinical work has also focused on helping people who are experiencing feelings of low self-esteem. I have experience of working with adults that may have a long term health condition such as diabetes and how this can affect mental health. I have written and developed psycho-educational workshops and courses that have been very effective.

I am passionate about working with individuals and provide a high standard of care. I apply a sensitive approach and work collaboratively to help you to achieve your goals. I am optimistic and enthusiastic and enjoy my role as a CBT Therapist.

I abide by the professional and ethical standards laid down by the BABCP and I have full professional indemnity and current DBS clearance. In addition to CBT I have worked with third wave CBT methods such as self-compassion and Mindfulness.
