More Detail

4 Years Post-Registration Experience

Hello. I'm Chamari. I'm an accredited and registered counsellor and psychotherapist - I help individuals and couples with their mental wellbeing. I hold private sector experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist. My focus involves stress, and the specific difficulties faced by men and women.

What to Expect

A preliminary assessment meeting enables you to see if you are comfortable with me, discuss what troubles you, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and decide if therapy may assist you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange a preliminary assessment session in Holloway, London or Wembley.

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You determine what matter regarding your early years and/or adulthood you explore. The objective of counselling is to help you to speak about a difficulty and find a way forward that is right for you.

Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye movement desensitisation reprocessing directs your eye movements to stimulate how your brain processes information. The procedure endeavours to reprocess your frozen distressing recollections. The objective of EMDR is to desensitise your painful memories.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) suggests eye movement desensitisation reprocessing for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the difficulties you face. It explores your thoughts, feelings and significant moments in your history. Psychotherapy aims to help you develop or find appropriate methods of managing.
