Anil Kosar-Palmer, BA (Hons), MA, MBCP
I am a highly experienced psychotherapist, providing short and long term therapy.
Whether you are in the midst of a crisis, experiencing indefinable feelings of dissatisfaction or seeking to focus on a specific issue, I provide a safe and confidential setting in which thoughts and feelings can be discussed - free from judgement or prejudice.
I work with people of all ages – dealing with issues ranging from:
- Relationship and sexual issues
- Infertility and IVF
- Low self-esteem and confidence issues
- Separation and grief
Through our work together, I will help you find opportunities for transformation, better communication, freedom, greater insight and enhanced fulfilment.
I offer an integrative approach that draws on a variety of perspectives and theories (humanistic, existential and analytic) depending on your needs and sensibilities.
But regardless of the chosen theoretical framework, I believe the success of therapy is primarily dependent on a secure therapeutic relationship - developed through acceptance, trust and safety.
What to expect and what I can offer
I appreciate the decision to begin therapy can evoke anxious feelings. This is completely natural and I will provide you with the space, time and support that you need to engage with your own story, in your own time and at your own pace.
Should you be interested in finding out more, please contact me for an initial assessment session in which we will explore what you hope to gain from therapy and address any questions or concerns you may have, all in the strictest confidence.
Following this initial session, there is no obligation to continue with therapy, the decision will be solely yours to make.
Should you wish to proceed, we will then begin to meet for 50-minute sessions on a weekly basis.

I have extensive experience in providing short-term and long-term therapy and I have worked with the NHS, Mind, mental health organisations, charities, colleges and in private practice
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
