My name is Jamila Sarfraz and I am a registered therapeutic counsellor with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
My top-most goal is to help you find answers to any issue you may be facing regarding emotional or behavioural difficulties in your life, followed by identifying and solutions to overcome them. I believe every individual’s struggles and worries are unique, and that we are all capable of finding the reasons - and often the solutions too- to our difficulties ourselves, with the help of right, professional support. To respond to you as an individual, I adopt an integrative approach. I utilise the psychotherapeutic techniques that suit you the best, including person centred therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy, mindfulness and psychodynamic therapy, amongst others.
I understand that everybody has a distinct manner of conversation and we feel more comfortable or relaxed in certain settings over others. Therefore, I offer flexibility to speak in any suitable setting that you prefer, be it on a seaside, over the phone or in a traditional counselling room. In any case, you can expect a safe, caring and non-judgmental environment where I can help you on your journey in a completely confidential manner.
I have two years’ experience working with individuals suffering from long-term addiction, substance abuse, anxiety, loneliness, depression as well as other issues. Due to my own personal experience of migration, I am also especially passionate about addressing difficulties related to integration in changing environments.
To summarise, I am here to help YOU. Therefore, expect this to be a learning experience about yourself. I follow a process which works! It has yielded positive outcomes so far and I hope I can help you find the answers you are looking for too.
I look forward to speaking with you soon. Contact me for an initial consultation.
Training, qualifications & experience
Counselling diploma Integrative Level 4
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.
