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.

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.
