Kamila Kaminska Counselling for Individuals and Couples
The Wellbeing Centre
6 Pound Street
I am a qualified, BACP Registered Counsellor and Couples Therapist working with a great variety of individuals, parents and couples.
Whether you are seeking support for yourself or your relationship, I believe it is worth talking about it. You may have come to a point where you want to change how you feel, the way you are together in your relationship, or to better manage how to live with what cannot be changed in your life. I offer the opportunity to explore together what is troubling you and find a way forward.
I hope that this profile or my website can help you to get the feel if I may be the right therapist for you. I fully understand how difficult it may be to take the first step towards getting help or talking to your partner about couples therapy. When you feel ready to make the first step and contact me, I would be very pleased to hear from you.
You can contact me in a way that feels most comfortable to you: whether it is dropping me an email or having a chat over the phone to see if counselling is what you need at this time.
Training, qualifications & experience
My interests and counselling experience of supporting clients include:
- crippling anxiety and panic attacks; I also regularly offer workshops on overcoming anxiety,
- relationship difficulties; whether it is starting a relationship, maintaing it or letting go,
- problems with intimacy or sex,
- life-sapping depression,
- bereavement and loss,
- addictions and self-harming behaviours,
- pregnancy, birth and postnatal counselling.
At the heart of my practice is to provide you with safe, confidential and ethical therapy. I am a member of the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples and British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Before setting up a practice in Newbury, I have supported people struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship problems and mental health issues at Nafsiyat Inter-Cultural Therapy Centre, Waterloo Community Counselling and Multi-Ethnic Counselling Service in London. I have provided counselling for London South Bank University students and for the primary school pupils in Leytonstone. I have also supported people in the midst of suicidal crisis at the Suicidal Respite Centre in London.
I hold Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling, Certificate in Counselling Skills and Externship in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples. To keep my skills and knowledge fresh, I regularly attend CPD events.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Affairs and betrayals
- Attachment disorder
- Child related issues
- Emotional abuse
- Internet addiction
- Physical abuse
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Postnatal depression
Other areas of counselling I deal with

I am also trained to work with young people and adults experiencing PTSD using Trauma-Focused CBT, which is a highly effective method. It is recommended by NICE to treat PTSD and help you regain control of your mind after a traumatic event.

When we meet for the initial consultation, I will invite you to talk about what you would like to work on in counselling. There is no obligation for you to continue with further sessions, but if we both decide that counselling with me meet your needs, we will then arrange day and time for further appointments.
Mindful of professional boundaries, I offer you a reliable and supportive space to be yourself, where you can build your trust to me and open up to talk about yourself and your problems in a way that feels safe.
