Zoe Gadhavi

MBACP Dip Therapeutic Counselling

About me


My training and philosophy are grounded in the person-centred mode of counselling – the thinking being that when given the right conditions individuals will have a tendency to work towards fulfilling their potential.

I am experienced in enabling this process through exploration of thoughts and feelings, challenging safely and appropriately so that a deeper understanding of who we are, our behaviours and triggers, can be gained. This exploration and insight can help build confidence, strengthen self-esteem and lessen anxiety. As a result, children can find themselves in a better place to engage within the classroom, impacting positively on educational attainment.

I strive to work empathically and without judgement believing that offering these conditions allows the child to feel safe, valued and heard; and that who they are matters.

I work from a non-directive approach, supporting the child to better understand themselves and their self-concept.

I am a member of the BACP and as such adhere to their ethical framework.
