Complementary therapy clinic in Oxford

Dr Parveen Bains

Dr Parveen Bains is a UK Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP) accredited Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and a medical doctor. She is also a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists. She currently holds an NHS Consultant post as a Medical Psychotherapist in Hertfordshire.

Parveen completed her Medical degree in London and then went on to complete her junior training in Psychiatry at the Maudsley Hospital (Institute of Psychiatry), London. She came to Oxford to complete higher specialist training in Medical Psychotherapy and has worked in the Psychological Services department at the Warneford Hospital and also at the Isis Centre in Oxford.

During this time, she has participated in Psychotherapy research and in the training and supervision of other health professionals in Psychoanalytic methods. She has a special interest in working psychotherapeutically with those with Eating Disorders and also with health professionals. She is also very experienced at working with a range of conditions such as relationship/interpersonal difficulties, low mood/depression, overwhelming emotions, anxiety disorders, trauma and stress and physically unexplained medical symptoms. Parveen works together with clients in a holistic way according to their individual needs.

Parveen practises Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy which is sometimes also called Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. This places an emphasis on the relationships (past and present) in the client’s life and the individual’s emotional responses to these relationships. We look together at how present day problems might arise due to patterns of relating established in these past relationships which are no longer helpful to us. Therapy can be time limited and brief, longer term or open ended. Parveen also sees some clients for more intensive therapy (more than once weekly). This will be decided collaboratively at our initial consultation.

Fees: Initial Consultation/therapy session £95 per 50 mins

Therapy sessions last 50 minutes.
