About me

Hi! I'm Jaima. Firstly, I would like to say thank you for taking the first step to investing in yourself! So, here's a little bit about me:

​I am a qualified and insured integrative counsellor and life coach. In simpler words, I use a range of therapies and techniques to help you as best I can. Some of these include: CBT, person-centered therapy, existential therapy, meditation and mindfulness activities.

How can I help you?

By providing a safe, non-judgemental area for you, we can take steps together to explore your past experiences, your current issues and your future goals. Giving yourself the chance to increase self-awareness of your emotions and in turn, increase your confidence to make decisions. Do not feel as though no problem is too big or too small, if it affects you, it's important! And I hope I can help you through this journey!

About me 

I would also like to share the reasons as to why I became a counsellor/life coach and my aim within the mental wellness world. As a female from an ethnic minority background, knowledge around mental wellness and therapy were not entirely common throughout my upbringing. The ideology was heavy on locking up 'negative' emotions and keeping that lid on tight! I want people to know you don't have to be going through world war lll in your mind to consider therapy. Wanting a friendly chat with someone who will listen, or aiming to set personal goals to be the best you you can be, or even wanting to understand and get to know yourself better are more than enough reason to get someone like me to hear you out.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a BA Hons degree in integrative counselling and psychotherapy and an accredited life coaching qualification. I also have other relevant qualifications surrounding meditation and mindfulness coaching. I have worked with a range of individuals of different ages and cultural backgrounds. I have counselling experience in a number of educational settings.

Some areas I can help with include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Eating Disorders
  • Bereavement/Loss
  • Relationship/Family issues

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
