About me and my therapy practice
Hello I'm Kelly, I am a BACP registered therapist with a BA (Hons) in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
My sessions at Locus Amoenus Counselling and Therapy Services are adapted to you as an individual. I am extremely flexible in how I work and can quickly understand what will support you best. I work as an integrative therapist because we are all individuals, so one type of therapy will not work for all. I am highly empathetic and compassionate, working in depth at a pace you feel comfortable.
Please take a look at my website:
I have experience working with both children and adults with a variety of difficulties. I have extensive experience working with anxiety, OCD, depression, historic abuse, trauma, self-harm, suicide ideation and domestic abuse.
I have experience and a real understanding, professionally and personally of neurodiversity. I have worked with children who have been diagnosed with ADHD and Autism, and I find my adaptability in sessions is a great asset to helping individuals with neurodiversities. I am passionate about changing the narrative on neurodiversity and instilling confidence in individuals who are struggling to fit in.
The therapies I offer are:
Person Centred therapy
CBT (Cognitive behavioural therapy)
Solution-focused therapy (directive, action planning)
Creative therapy (Art, crafts, games, activities adapted to therapy)
Lego therapy (communication-based therapy)
Confidence, self-esteem and life skills coaching - personal development sessions
Sessions can be fully focused on one type of therapy or a combination of therapies can be used.
My first session
I offer an initial phone call chat for free to discuss your needs and see if you would like to set up a first session - choosing the right therapist for you as an individual is key and I am very open and honest, offering referral if I feel you would benefit from a different counsellor or service.
In your first session, we will go through important aspects of therapy including an assessment and our contract. I offer a 15 minute extension on the first session to allow time for this.
