About me and my therapy practice
Welcome to my profile! My name is Krissy and I am a BACP Accredited Psychotherapist. I recognise it takes courage to seek therapy and I therefore thank you for choosing to read my short profile. Reaching out for therapy can be scary, daunting, exciting even and sometimes it requires us to step outside of our comfort zone. I will be alongside you as you enter the journey of therapy, accepting you as you and creating a safe space where you can work through what has brought you here.
Often through life we can experience a wide range of emotional challenges or difficulties. This can arise from how we feel about ourselves, how we feel in relation to others and life experiences, past, present or future, which may include trauma, loss, sadness or fear etc. People attend therapy for a multitude of different reasons. It may be that you are struggling right now or it may be that you have space in your life to learn more about yourself.
I strive and commit to creating an environment filled with warmth, safety and support, free from judgment where I will listen carefully.
Part of the way I work is to treat every client individually, tailoring the way I work to your needs, enabling you to just be with no pressure from me to be anything or anyone other than you. As such, I draw upon various therapeutic interventions to ensure I am meeting your needs.
As detailed, I draw upon different therapeutic approaches to tailor your intervention to you. We explore what you want or need from the space and navigate it together. I offer both online sessions and face to face sessions in Plymouth. For face to face sessions there is a large carpark on-site and it is also on one level for wheelchair users.
I am committed to providing you with enriching experience and as such commit to ongoing courses (I am currently completing a doctorate in counselling psychology) as well as ensuring I am up to date with current research.
My first session
The first session gives an opportunity for you and I to meet and explore what your expectations or hopes for the therapy are. It’s also totally ok if you don’t know that yet too!
For some, a short-term intervention is wanted and for others a longer term, psychotherapy. We will discuss this in the first session alongside what has brought you to the space.
Feeling like I’m the right therapist for you is really important and this first session begins the building of our therapeutic relationship. My commitment to you is that I will do my best by you.
