About me

Hi, I'm Kam, I am a partner at Hertford Counselling Service, a private practice established in the centre of Hertford for over five years.

I meet clients from many different backgrounds and ages and with a variety of issues that are worked through. I believe that talking therapies can help individuals to become self aware and identify negative patterns of functioning.

My theoretical approach is integrative and I draw on various techniques that are suited to an individual's needs. A therapeutic relationship can be enriching and I believe people possess the answers within themselves, they just need some support which is provided in a non judgemental confidential space.

Choosing a therapist that is right for you can be a difficult experience and it is often this relationship that determines a positive outcome. I offer a free initial telephone conversation which usually lasts around 10 minutes, this will give us an idea of whether we are a good fit to work together.

Please contact me to arrange a suitable time to discuss how we can work together.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
