Tasnima Kamali MBACP
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor practising in London (in the Bank/Monument area & Islington). I am currently taking bookings in Bank/Monument on Thursdays. I am available in Islington on Weekends, Saturday AM. I work with adults, students and couples to raise their self-awareness and provide a space for change.
As an Integrative Counsellor I have trained in a number of approaches including Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, CBT and Existential therapy. I apply these therapeutic approaches to fit your individual needs and personal experience. Therapy offers you the chance to safely voice your thoughts, suffering or burdens in a confidential, non-judgmental and growth promoting environment that we shall co-create.
I am a professionally qualified and registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) which is the largest professional body representing counselling and psychotherapy in the UK.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have over 4 years' experience working as a Counsellor and within the field of Mental Health. My experience includes working as a counsellor within an NHS IAPT service, private therapy practice and within the educational mental health sector.
In my private practice I see clients who seek counselling for various reasons, ranging from adjusting to mental health diagnoses or symptoms, being affected by depression, anxiety, stress or have work-related issues. Many clients I work with seek therapy for social difficulties, relational difficulties and marriage or intimacy problems. I work regularly with clients on issues related to their self-esteem, value, worth and validation as I believe this is at the core of many 'secondary' issues which clients often face in life or find themselves seeking therapy for. A more comprehensive list of the areas I work with in counselling can be found above and below.
Before working in private practice I worked for Wandsworth & Westminster Mind offering therapy to clients within the local diverse community. I have also worked in private practice for a psychotherapy recovery clinic based near Harley St and a University Counselling service. Since then, I have combined my passion for mental health and inclusive educational rights, ensuring support for young Minds by working as a Mental Health & Wellbeing Officer for a College in London, managing one of their sites. I specialise in supporting students with mental health symptoms or diagnoses through their education through my work as a specialist mental health mentor.
