Kryshna Popat – Person-Centred Psychotherapist (UKCP, MBACP)

Kryshna Popat - Person-Centred Counsellor (MBACP)


About Me

My name is Kryshna (she/her) and I’m a qualified person-centred psychotherapist. I have experience working with people from a diverse range of backgrounds, each with their own unique challenges and life experiences.

I work 1-1 with individuals online or in person at Space To Be You in Hackney, E8.

How I Work

My approach is person-centred. That means our work together is a collaborative relationship focused on understanding how things are for you. I believe what matters is how you perceive your inner world and experiences, rather than anyone else.

When life feels challenging, it can be hard to manage or make sense of it on your own. But talking openly about your thoughts and feelings in a safe, supportive, and confidential space may help you find a way forward.

My intention is to listen and accompany you in your exploration of your experiences, with genuine curiosity and acceptance, and without judgement or agenda. Everyone’s process is unique, and we’ll be guided by your direction and pace.

By coming to understand yourself, your relationships, and your situation better, you may find more self-acceptance and clarity. And in turn, be able to make more fulfilling choices in your life.


I hold a Clinical Diploma and MSc in Contemporary Person-Centred Psychotherapy from the Metanoia Institute in London.

As well as private practice, my clinical experience involves work in community-based counselling services across London, supporting clients to understand and work through a wide range of issues.

I follow both the BACP and UKCP Code of Ethics. This includes regular supervision of my work and ongoing professional development.

What To Expect

Finding the right therapist can be overwhelming, and it takes courage to share what you’re going through with another person.

I’d suggest having an initial assessment session to see how talking to me feels for you. This is time for us to discuss what’s brought you here, whether therapy with me could be helpful for you, and any questions you might have.

From there we can decide whether to continue and agree how we’ll work together.

I’m very happy to answer any questions you have before booking an assessment session. If there’s anything you want to discuss, you can contact me using the details below.

Sessions and Fees

Sessions last up to 50 minutes and can be online or in person.

My fee is £70 per session.

I also offer some lower cost sessions.

How To Contact Me

You can email me at [email protected], or message/call me on 07403 204 640. I’ll always try to reply within 24 hours.

All of our contact is confidential.
