Nimisha Marrum

Nimisha comes to psychotherapy after a significant period of working in the City.  Over 15 years of being a Human Resources professional in high pressure corporate and legal environments has given her a unique insight into the demands corporate life places on people, both in terms of their physical and mental wellbeing.  This has enabled her to help people deal with situations where they feel hopeless or out of their depth.   She especially enjoys building close relationships with people by working with them intensively on a one to one basis to enabling them to find their own solutions to problems they had previously thought insurmountable.

“As a psychotherapist, I believe that therapy works because of the relationship between the therapist and the individual.  I can provide a warm, non-judgmental and trusting environment in which you can be heard and explore those feelings which you may be struggling with and to find ways forward for acceptance and change.”

Since taking her Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy at Derby University, Nimisha has worked with a broad spectrum of people and their issues both privately and for the NHS.  She has also volunteered at Rape Crisis and retains a strong interest in women’s issues.  Nimisha is a BACP registered independent therapist.

In her spare time, Nimisha loves doing yoga and scuba diving and views both of these activities as a form of mindfulness.  Having come to motherhood later in life, she also loves spending time with her young son.

“Therapy works because; we want our lives to be different, we can be resourceful and we have the power to change. This can come about as we talk about feelings which are causing distress or confusion. Such feelings can impact on everyday life, influencing how we see the world and relate to others. Such feelings may track back to earlier times in your life and you may feel have become a part of you. You may wonder how you can ever feel different. However gently uncovering layers can help you see yourself and others in a new light and help you to respond differently. Whilst insight can be like a light bulb moment, I feel that the journey you will take with me is equally significant. Better and deeper relationships can come from this.”
