About me and my therapy practice
My name is Adil and I am a Registered Member with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), a Student Member with Collage of Sexual and Relationship Therapy (COSRT) and a Professional Member of Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO).
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor, experienced in delivering face to face and online counselling, and more recently specialising in Psychosexual and Couples Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I have worked in the public health sector for the past 8 years working previously in frontline roles with a focus on: mental health, HIV and sexual health, LGBT, substance misuse, domestic violence, people with learning disabilities and homeless. Currently, I am managing a Counselling Service for people living with HIV and/or at risk of poor sexual health around their additional concerns.
My main areas of practice and experience are:
Coping with Anxiety and/or Depression
Coping with Crisis
Coming to terms with sexuality and/or gender identity
Being ostracised from family and friends
Issues with romantic and platonic relationships
Coming to terms with HIV and STI diagnosis
Effects of racism
Abuse and trauma
Dealing with substance misuse
My first session
The first session
In the first session we will look at your reasons for seeking therapy and what you would like to get from it. We will also discuss any questions and concerns you may have about the counselling process. The first session will be an opportunity for both of us to get to know each other and decide whether we would like to work together.
Sessions take the form of a conversation. They are a non-judgemental, safe and confidential space where you are free to speak about whatever you wish. My role, as a Counsellor, is to help you explore and manage whatever you are going through.

I offer open-ended therapy and ask for one pre-agreed session for an ending.
