About me

My name is Kamil, I am fully qualified, MBACP Accredited and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist. I offer a warm, confidential and non-judgemental environment for individual clients and couples. I truly believe that change is possible for everyone. I have the confidence to be able to provide enough support to help you to find the best coping strategies to change your life for the better.

I offer online counselling and telephone counselling for those who are unable to attend a face to face sessions for any reason.

I am offering relational, couple and EMDR therapy. EMDR therapy only 50 pounds per session.

​How I work

Together we will identify your problems, focus on finding solutions and discover your best coping strategies for all that life throws at you. I use mindfulness, breathing exercises, muscle relaxation and many more strategies.

We will challenge your beliefs and look at different perspectives. Together we will challenge negative thoughts and help you focus on your attachment styles which we have all unconsciously learnt from childhood; looking at how they play significant roles in our current relationships.

​I have experience working with clients suffering from a wide range of issues which include; depression, anxiety, PTSD, anger, rage, relationship issues, childhood abuse, sexual abuse, domestic abuse, low self-esteem, bullying, sadness, coping with serious health conditions, stress, suicidal thoughts, personality disorders, despair, change, addictions, low self-confidence, self-harm, trauma, grief, identity, sexual orientation.

Relationship and Couples Therapy

I am a fully qualified couple and relationship therapist, holding an advanced certificate in relationship therapy approved by The College of Sexual and Relationship Therapies. I am able to help you find the right balance of understanding within your relationship. I work with couples in conflict looking to find positive conflict management techniques, dealing with affairs and the anger, blame, frustration and lack of trust this can bring. Together we will work to see how you can meet your partner's needs and explore how each of you can have your needs met in the relationship.
I can help with communication, negotiation and understanding your relationship dynamics. I also can address sexual issues such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, loss of desire and vaginismus.

I am qualified to work with couples, siblings, friends, parents or any other important relationship where additional support can help.
I have experience working with same-sex couples and supporting with dynamics, strengths and vulnerabilities that are specific to this.

LGBTQ+

Needs Specific to the LGBTQ+ Community. I am trained to work with gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender and queer clients as well as other representations of sexual orientations and gender identities.

I can help with difficulties around 'coming out', stigma, impact on mental health, childhood bias, gender identity, high-risk sexual behaviours and look to create goals and specific treatment plans.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
