Bringing positive change to people's lives.
Are you looking for someone you can trust completely, who can support you and guide you through difficult times?
I'm a warm, friendly, straight talking, dependable and competent counsellor. I work both short term and long term for those clients who want to engage on a more deeply therapeutic level. My approach to life is youthful and combined with the benefit of much rich life experience and a broad and varied toolkit, I have succeeded in helping many satisfied clients over my career in counselling. People tell me I'm a strong woman who is dependable, reliable and above all compassionate.
I am a member of the BACP and hold a Degree and Diploma in Transactional Analysis Counselling and have attended many other trainings to boot. Over the last 12 years I have accrued experience working both within private practice and within an NHS setting, working with a variety of issues including:
- health challenges

Some clients, want to know how to change their situation, achieve more satisfaction, are interested in their own personal development, or just need support to help them achieve their goals or improve the quality of their lives.

I use a therapy room in Bagshot, Surrey, where I have a waiting room, with easy free parking behind the Co-op.The Integral Life Centre has a warm, cosy feeling to it.
I also practise from my home in Aldbourne. The village is only 15-20 minutes from Swindon, Marlborough and Hungerford and less than 25 minutes from Newbury. I would describe my consulting room as characterful, clean, light, bright, warm and very comfortable. I have a separate entrance. There is plenty of parking in the road.
To help you decide whether to take the next step or not, why not read what other people have gained from their experience with me?
And then, take the first small step by emailing me with brief details of your situation or by picking up the phone to arrange an initial appointment.

"Thank you Kay for all your help and support. Attending counselling has made me learn about myself and has given me the confidence to make positive changes in my life." - CL J
"You have been the most positive person I have ever met. Words can never be enough to show how thankful I am to you for everything you have done for me. No one has ever believed in me or understood me like you have" - Client L
"Thankyou from my heart for your guidance and wisdom. My time spent with you has given me a totally new and wholly positive outlook on my life." - Client J
"Kay tapped into my needs straight away. With her guidance and help I have taken back control of my life. I have learned to be strong, confident and assertive and I use the life skills I learned every day." - Client K
"From the first conversation with Kay I felt immediately at ease. I heard a caring, warm and confident person that I could connect with, something I find quite difficult to do on a private level. After 6months of attending counselling my belief that 'life is hard' has now changed to 'life is a challenge and you can only embrace it !' I now find that I have more realistic goals both short and long term, so thank you Kay for coaching me back onto the road of life!' - CL E
"I went to Kay after the birth of my daughter. I was feeling overwhelmed and anxious about life and felt as though I couldnt cope. I had lost a lot of self confidence and felt isolated and alone. As a result relationships with my husband and friends felt strained. Kay has helped me to develop strategies to manage my anxiety. She helped me to understand myself far better and to adjust my expectations of life, myself and others so that they were more realistic. I now feel as though I am able to cope with my feelings of anxiety when they arise. I feel more at ease with myself and happy with life." - CL L
