Ajay Lamba
Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist

Ajay Lamba

Ajay Lamba has been practicing cognitive behavioural therapy techniques for the last six years. He has delivered psychotherapy in private hospitals, NHS hospitals and private practice, providing a wealth of experience with people from diverse backgrounds and all age groups. His academic and work career has been predominantly focused on helping people achieve their goals of recovery by relieving symptoms of depression and anxiety, from mild to severe psychological difficulties.

Mr Lamba is also trained in a number of complementary psychotherapeutic techniques such as mindfulness and compassion-focussed work, to provide his clients with a range of tools to help them make sense of their difficulties and then for us to work together in overcoming their distress. He also focusses on long-term physical health conditions and the causality between a physical health problem (chronic or acute) and the impact that this may have on a client’s mental health. This involves influencing aspects of one’s life that can’t be controlled and working towards acceptance using values on symptoms which are harder to change. Physical health problems may include diabetes (T1 & T2), chronic fatigue syndrome, pain, IBS, COPD and many other conditions including medically unexplained symptoms.

The initial focus will be on the therapeutic relationship to ensure that we reach a shared understanding of difficulties before embarking on strategies and interventions to help support overall wellbeing. Treatment is delivered on a short and long-term basis, which can involve friends and family members, including targeted developmental programmes such health, fitness and social skills.


  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
  • 1-9 days training on long-term health conditions, compassion-focussed CBT, acceptance and commitment therapy and many other therapeutic modalities
