Zara Kadir MCouns&PsychTh (BACP)
I am an integrative psychotherapist with experience working with children, adolescents and adults. I understand psychotherapy as a process whereby, together, we can look at your life and relationships in order to gain a better understanding of who you are and what your options might be.
Sometimes we feel overwhelmed by the experiences we have had and psychotherapy allows us to understand the events that have led us to feel unsettled and gain new insights into why or how ones life has evolved as it has.
I'm happy to offer a free 15 minute phone consultation to address any queries.
Training, qualifications & experience
MA counselling and psychotherapy (Regents University)
Certificate Counselling & Psychotherapy
Experience working with the Jewish community as well as many other demographics struggling with -
- Domestic violence
- Eating disorders
- Relationship issues
- Religious conflict
- Family conflict
Sometimes there isn't a diagnostic word for your struggle, maybe you're just feeling sad and need someone to confide in. Often the difference between talking to friends and talking to a therapist is a friend will say "yes I've felt that too and this is what I did" and a therapist will simply say "I hear how much you're struggling" and allow you to expand upon your experience.
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.

Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

If you're reading this then perhaps you feel unhappy or overwhelmed. I encourage you to try a session to see if we can work together.
I like to think of psychotherapy as a space for us to think aloud together. In your first session it's likely that I'll ask a few questions to see what's brought you to counselling but on the whole, it's a space for you to use as you wish.
I always ask that you have a think after our session about if I am the right person for you. It is a relationship like any other and it's important that the chemistry is right and you feel comfortable with me.
