Kellie Giunta Reg MBACP
01438 515248 / 07854 224303
Hello! My name is Kellie and I am a qualified counsellor based in Stevenage, where I have my own private practice. There is a driveway for parking, and a bus route from the town centre. My private practice is a 2 minute walk from the peartree shops.
Taking steps to see a therapist can be very daunting indeed, but I offer you a relaxed environment where you are able to talk through issues you are experiencing. I want you to feel safe in an accepting and non-judgemental environment.
As a therapeutic counsellor I am genuine and bring my own personality to the counselling room. What is explored in the counselling room is entirely up to you - I place great importance on allowing you the freedom to look at any or every facet of your life, from the earliest memories to the present day.
I am here to listen to you, to support you through dark times. You are the expert of your life experiences, and I want to know what that's like for you.
My philosophy... "Life Matters" - All my clients matter to me, you are important to me, and I hope you experience this as well. No one should suffer on their own.
What can you expect from therapy with me?
I am happy to communicate through text or message if you do not want to talk over the phone, you can ask me any questions, I will then book you an appointment. The first session will be going over the contract and making sure you are happy with it, the first session is about getting to know each other and if you are happy then we can book another appointment for the following week, the session will be on the same day every week and at the same time, IF the appointment has to be changed I will do my best to fit you in on another day.

My approach to therapy is Person-Centred which is based on the theory that is non-directive. I will not tell you what to do, I believe that every individual has the potential and ability to make the right choices for themselves, regardless of my own values, beliefs and ideas.
I work to understand my clients experience from their point of view. I value my clients in all aspects of their humanity, while aiming to be open and real, helping a client to feel accepted and to better understand their own feelings. Over time a client will be able to reconnect with their inner values and a sense of self worth.
