About me and my therapy practice

A warm welcome.

I'm an experienced MBACP Accred therapist, with a degree (BSc Hons) in counselling, an enhanced DBS check and GRASAC accreditation to work with sexual violence.

Together we can explore what you feel ready and safe to share. What does it feel like to take off masks, shedding protective layers that keep the authentic, vulnerable self safe while navigating through challenging or traumatic times?

My area of expertise include:

Emotional and Sexual Abuse

Loneliness and social isolation

Body Image

Neglect

Sexual Assault

Gender Identity

Exploration of sexuality

Struggles with relationships and attachment

High Sensitivity

Suicidal Ideation / self harm

Bereavement

Empowerment Strategies

Strength based

Whether you experience yourself as being a misfit, lonely, stuck, anxious, burned out, depressed or alienated from the world,  I will be at your side to support you. Along our journey I will offer my empathy and professional, evidence-based skills that hopefully will benefit your growth process.

My approach

Into my person centred practice, I integrate compassion focussed cognitive behavioural therapy (CF-CBT) that include:

mindfulness, linguistics and neuroscientific aspects. Additionally, looking at societal attitudes and cultural influences on gender and relational dynamics utilising experimental approaches such as guided imagery, voice and body work.

About me and my therapy practice

Supervision with Kerstin

I’m Kerstin Pullin, an NCS accredited supervisor and BACP Accredited Counsellor that knows from experience that it requires relational trust building to bring cases that can be tough and impacting on your confidence. Balancing being a diligent practitioner with the necessity to practice self-care and run a business or work in an organisational setting is not easy and requires ongoing self-reflection/coaching.

That’s where my experience comes in to empathically support, challenge and empower you to stay on your path whilst sailing through sometimes rough waters with your clients. My background is in providing contemporary trauma informed practice that incorporates intersectionality and practitioners wellbeing. Clients can introduce a multitude of themes that can make your head spin and wonder how it connects with their initial hopes for counselling outcomes. How does their e.g. gender, skin colour, sexual orientation, age, class, culture etc. have informed their understanding about the struggles they are facing and how does your own intersectionality may impact the therapy process?

Practice description

 

Brining yourself in to supervision
Potentially working with a number of complex cases and narratives about experiences or witnessing of violence and abuse can lead to therapists developing secondary trauma traits. I therefore don’t limit our time together to client work, as counselling and psychotherapy supervision involves you, so bringing all of yourself to supervision; personal and/or private practice/organisational aspects.

I’m also there for you along your academic career from Diploma to Phd level, if you are planning to apply for accreditation, supervision training and/or planning to set up a thriving private practice. Despite going through difficult socio-political, environmental and pandemic dominated times I can provide you with supervision that is collaborative, dynamic, holding and respectful of your requirements.

 

My first session

What I can help with
