Prob­lem solv­ing – with spirit

Jan­uary is tra­di­tion­ally the most de­press­ing month of the year, if you suf­fer from prob­lems beyond Blue Mon­day, then meet the woman who may be able to help. Laura Mowat speaks to a rather unique spir­i­tual psy­chol­o­gist

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - LIFE & LEISURE -

NEE­LAM Ja­ga­sia can­not de­scribe what she does ex­actly, other than that she helps peo­ple. She com­bines her Masters at Birk­beck Col­lege in oc­cu­pa­tional psy­chol­ogy, her astrol­ogy and her Chris­tian­ity to aid her clients.

Nee­lam prac­tises at her home in Chor­ley­wood and her clients come from around Buck­ing­hamshire. She claims her clients are a cross-sec­tion of so­ci­ety, in­clud­ing lawyers and doc­tors.

Nee­lam said: “What­ever I do, I back it up with sci­ence. I can help peo­ple, for ex­am­ple if they are hav­ing prob­lems get­ting work but they must have faith. I have a unique spir­i­tu­al­ity and be­lieve that ev­ery­one has their own unique­ness about them. I care a lot about peo­ple.”

Nee­lam’s ad­vice for any sin­gle peo­ple over the ap­proach­ing Valen­tine’s Day is to give flow­ers away.

She said: “There are dif­fer­ent ways that peo­ple can ex­pe­ri­ence love. I am go­ing to give flow­ers to my mum. If they don’t have one, they should have flow­ers for them­selves.”

The 48-year-old mother-of-three added: “Peo­ple come to me and what I do is I take as­pects of psy­chol­ogy that are needed, I have a pas­sion for astrol­ogy too and I back ev­ery­thing up with sci­ence. I go above and beyond.

“My ser­vice is so unique and I can’t even la­bel my­self as I take things from dif­fer­ent places. The In­dian side of me is very spir­i­tual, I see the good in peo­ple.”

Nee­lam, who went to school in Kent, prides her­self on be­ing able to help her clients by help­ing them be­lieve in them­selves.

She thinks that her clar­ity of vi­sion is from the way she leads her life, which in­cludes fast­ing, med­i­tat­ing and yoga.

She said: “Coun­sel­lors will lis­ten to you, psy­chol­o­gists will an­a­lyse and I work with the per­son. I be­lieve in di­ver­sity and ad­dress ev­ery client dif­fer­ently.

“My ap­proach is be­spoke, all th­ese dis­ci­plines have some­thing good in them but the real magic hap­pens when you com­bine the best of them all.So­ci­ety has too many rules and it doesn’t al­low for in­di­vid­u­al­ity.”

Nee­lam de­scribed her­self as the right per­son to turn to for peo­ple in com­plete despair, iden­ti­fy­ing her­self as the ‘999 of the mind’.

Although Nee­lam does charge for her ser­vice, she says she waives her fee for any­one in des­per­ate need with a tight bud­get.
