Ellie Kemp - Registered member MBACP (Accred)
I am an experienced, qualified Counsellor trained in a number of different approaches including Hypnotherapy, Tapping and CBT techniques. I believe that the relationship between counsellor and client is central to successful therapy. My aim is to offer you a warm accepting environment in which you can recover from your distress.
I am based in a quiet, friendly space in Whitstable with free parking and Canterbury Town Centre.
I am experienced in working with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, trauma, bereavement, low self esteem and other areas. I believe that with support at key times in life everyone is able to recover from their difficulties and find a way forward; often proving to themselves that they are more resilient than they knew.
Sometimes this process takes time but it can also be helped along with non-judgemental, impartial support and the therapist's skills. Counselling can help you to understand why you feel how you are feeling, why you do what you do, and how to resolve your issues. We can explore this together and aim to help you to become more resilient and live a more resourceful happier life.
Integrating Hypnotherapy into this therapeutic process allows fears and disbeliefs to be bypassed and so may encourage and empower the person to move forward.
Some people find that simply expressing their feelings and gaining clarity is healing enough for them to live the life they want. Others may prefer a more psycho-educational approach with information and strategies that can be used to support and guide them. I can offer you a flexible, creative treatment plan to suit your needs.
I have experience of working in GP surgeries and I currently work for an Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) service provider using Integrative and CBT techniques and strategies.
Please contact me to book a first session. At this meeting we will explore how I can help you. Meeting in a relaxed, peaceful environment will give you the chance to see if I am the right counsellor for you. I offer short term and long term therapy for Individuals.
