About me and my therapy practice

It can be easy to assume that counselling is just for people with mental health issues. However, everyone can benefit from feeling truly heard without unsolicited advice or finding themselves the one providing support, not receiving it. Friends and family although well meaning, sometimes don’t leave you feeling heard or validated. Whether you have a goal or not, we can reflect on your past, present and future to really understand what has happened, what you’d like to be different and how you might make get there.

No matter how your experiences are affecting you, we will work together in a way that suits you as a unique person with a unique set of circumstances. The changes you would like to make and how you want to make them will be equally unique. I can help you to identify what these are and what might be stopping you from feeling able to start actioning them. You, your thoughts, feelings and needs are the priority and will remain the focus of our sessions.

I know therapy can only be successful if you have a really good relationship with your counsellor, this is why I offer a 20 minute no commitment consultation call for us to make sure you feel comfortable talking to me. For more information about what this call includes and my practice please visit my website www.kmccounselling.info

I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about what is bringing you to counselling
