About me and my therapy practice

Hello. My name is Kristina. In my counselling practice I use an integrative range of techniques depending on what I feel my client needs. This can often change and develop as different needs arise for each client - I very much view each as an individual and tailor my approach accordingly. My initial training was in person-centred and gestalt therapy but I have added to my range of skills with a variety of continued training and development over the years. As a result, my methods are an eclectic mixture, but always grounded in my roots with a person-centred approach.

I have completed training in Autism and Asperger Awareness and recently completed a course in Animal Assisted Therapy in Counselling.

My counselling experience covers a range of clients: I work with adults, children and young people; I have a particular interest in autism and have had clients on the spectrum; with experience of being a carer myself, I have also worked with many clients dealing with issues related to being a carer (particularly identity, loss and guilt); I worked with Place2Be as a volunteer, using play therapy techniques with primary-aged children and have experience with teenagers as a foster-carer and counsellor in private practice.

I offer home visits or I also use rooms in other venues as appropriate for each client.

Is there anything else specific you need to know? Please get in touch if you have any questions.

Practice description


The current situation has many layers of different emotions for everyone: from fear of what may happen to secret relief for respite from a previous situation. Anxiety overlays every aspect of daily life. If you, or anyone you know, is struggling to cope, please get in touch to arrange an online appointment (instead of my usual home visits) - I can conduct counselling sessions via a variety of apps and platforms as suits each client (Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp, Messenger etc).
