About me and my therapy practice
Hello I’m Kirsty. I predominantly work as a Person-Centred Counsellor, allowing my clients time to explore what has bought them to counselling. I offer a safe, secure, confidential space where my clients can feel comfortable to unravel what is at the core of their feelings, which could be related to life experiences, or formed thoughts and patterns of behaviours. My hopes are for my clients to find more comfortable ways of thinking about their life, to encourage them to gain self-confidence, and self-belief.
As a counsellor I adapt the way I work to suit each client, as every client is unique, and everyone works well with different approaches. I do this by integrating therapies to best suit the individual needs of each client. I have worked with both male and female clients who have been a variety of ages. I find that people come to counselling for many reasons, whereby they have reached a point in their life that they want some support in gaining some understanding of their reasons for accessing counselling.
During my studies, I undertook dual placement, one within an NHS setting, and the second with a young person’s mental health charity. Within the young person's mental health charity, I worked within a primary school supporting young children, with the YMCA supporting young homeless people, and with a young persons charity counselling young people online.
More recently alongside my private practice I have worked at Weston Hospicecare as a Children and Young Persons Counselling Coordinator supporting young people and families through bereavements and providing training to other professionals who are supporting young people. Within my private practice I have worked with Reclaim charity supporting victims of abuse and I also work with the Young Carers Organisation supporting Young Carers.
