About Mani

I am a developmental psychologist (D.Phil) with a post graduate Diploma in Person Centred Counselling (Metanoia institute, London). My practice is based on the belief that only the client is the expert on their own life. What I offer is a warm, supportive and empathic environment to facilitate your personal growth, and help you deal with whatever you are struggling with.

I offer a free initial 30 minute session for all new clients.

My Practice

At the moment I am able to offer online counselling, mainly via Zoom.

COVID restrictions permitting, from mid-June 2021 I will be offering face-to-face sessions in Market Drayton, Shropshire. My practice is within easy reach of Crewe, Newcastle-under-Lyme, and Stoke-on-Trent. I offer 50 minute sessions once a week. In line with good practice I offer a review after every 6 sessions to monitor progress and to get your feedback.

Practice Location: Private room in a building in Market Drayton, on the first floor. There is no lift access. There is availble parking nearby. Full address and details will be provided on contact.

Areas of counselling I deal with:

I am an experienced person-centred counsellor who offers you a confidential, non-judgemental and supportive space where you can address any life issues which affect your wellbeing.

I offer support for anxiety, depression, feelings of sadness, bereavement and loss. As a developmental psychologist I can also help with child behaviour as well as attachment issues for adults and children.


I offer counselling services in English and Bengali.
