Student Counsellor

Mr Deven Thakeria


I've trained as an Integrative therapist and have been with SOAS since 2018. Alongside this I work in a hospital setting with patients living with long term illnesses and also within the charity sector focusing on relationship therapy.

In counselling sessions we can explore events, patterns of behaviour and relationships that have troubled you. Most importantly I am here to be beside you when it gets confusing and lonely, as it can be for all of us at times.

When I am not in the counselling room, I am often walking the streets, on a bus or even a plane in search of food that tells stories and makes memories.
