Ashlyn Manikandan

Student Counsellor

About Me:

Ashlyn is a training student at Cherry Tree Therapy Centre in Buckhurst Hill.

I am a warm, caring, and approachable BACP registered student counsellor.

We live in a fast-paced world where, life literarily becomes a blur of activity and more and more of us seem to struggle with our daily life. Often, we don’t know where to seek help.

Counsellors work collaboratively with the client making sense of their problems. I adopt a person-centred approach which focuses on the client.  During therapy, I work with clients to help them understand themselves more and the part they and others play in their life.

I can assure a safe, secure, confidential, and non-judgmental space where clients can feel comfortable to discuss their thoughts, feelings and explore any issues that may be troubling them further.

I am aware that, for some people, this may be their first time experiencing any form of counselling, and this can seem daunting. With my patience and understanding, I will endeavour to always go at a pace that my clients feel comfortable with.

Currently I have availability for daytime, evening, and weekend appointments.
