About me and my therapy practice
Hi I’m Kristian a Counsellor based in Halifax, West Yorkshire. I offer face to face counselling to individuals but also offer online/telephone sessions.
It might be helpful if I told you a little bit about me, to help you decide if I’m the right counsellor for you. I worked in the Charity sector for about 15 years prior to counselling, in a variety of helping roles. I’m an open minded person, who would describe myself as down to earth, valuing individuality and the right to choose how we define ourselves. My nature is quite philosophical, interested in life’s grey areas.
People come for counselling for many different reasons and these are individual to each person. I’m not interested in judging you but I am here to accept you as I find you.
My role is to meet you as you are, knowing that you are likely in a fragile place reading this. I recognise that life can be challenging, placing high demands upon us. We can end up feeling stressed, anxious or find ourselves feeling lost. Some people just find themselves losing the connection with themselves and others.
I welcome clients from the LGBTQI+ community, having worked directly with all aspects of identity.
I work with people experiencing trauma, identity issues, abuse and loss. Counselling has put me in touch with people who may be experiencing anxiety, depression or both.
This not an exhaustive list and I'd be happy to have a discussion with you regarding your needs. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
I respond to all enquiries so if you leave me an answerphone message please ensure you leave a contact telephone number as otherwise I won't be able to return your call.
If you contact me by email please check your junk folder as sometimes my email replies can end up in there.
