Why I’m the therapist you are looking for?

“I bring a calm, positive and non-judgemental attitude as well as an insightful mind to guide my clients through the process of betterment and self-discovery. I’m focused on what’s right with people rather than what’s wrong”.

Hello, my name is Dominika Chalder. I imagine you’ve found your way here because you’re looking to make changes in your life. Not feeling yourself lately? Feeling anxious, stuck, confused or sad? I might be able to help you. My experience of dealing with millennial stress and anxiety allowed me to develop a deep understanding of the impacts of our modern way of living and working on our mental, emotional and physical well-being. Through my career, I gained insights into the challenges that many professionals face today – chronic stress, fear of failure, anxiety, imposter syndrome, poor boundaries, depression, physical exhaustion and burnout.

After 15 years working in academic and corporate positions in various communications roles, I was drawn back to the idea of helping people overcome their challenges. Professional growth and curiosity have led me to explore the routes of neuroscience and psychology used in influencing and communications. This eventually steered me to further studies in Integrative Psychotherapy, Mindfulness and Clinical Hypnotherapy and ultimately to qualify as a therapist.

My scientific background (PhD) gives me the ability to skillfully analyse and bring out themes that provide insights and change of perspective and behaviours. This combined with a compassionate, person-centred approach developed by 10 years of personal Mindfulness Zen practice allows me to be present and focused on my clients’ requirements.

I have completed accredited training in the therapeutic field that meets National Occupational Standards (NOS). I am in ongoing clinical supervision and belong to well-recognised professional associations listed on this page. These professional bodies require members to adhere to their Code of Ethics and have a structured complaints procedure. I am currently a Trainee Integrative Psychotherapist and I’m working in clinical practice towards full accreditation under the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
