Include Counselling With Kelly Dynes
Dundee Carers Centre
14A Links Road
Empowerment, acceptance and empathy. These are the three things I value most.
In my practice I work hard to empower my clients. I named my practice Include Counselling, not just because I want my client to include counselling into their lives, but because I feel that everyone deserves to be included into the counselling world. That is why I work hard to make my practice as accessible as possible to as many people as I can. I will work with you to accommodate your needs and provide you with a safe space.
I accept clients as they are, without judgement. As a Person-Centred therapist, I will not necessarily set you goals or give you homework. Rather, I will help you to set yourself realistic, manageable goals and give you space to explore healthy changes. You will be in charge.
I will try to understand things from your point of view. I will not try to make you feel guilty or ashamed, I will always strive to value your feelings and I will be there for you, giving you space to talk.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are a carer and you cannot afford the full charge of individual counselling, but you would be interested in joining a support group, please email me. I am in the process of creating a shortlist of interested parties in Dundee at the moment, and if I receive enough demand I intend to set up a monthly group meeting.

A little about me.
My full name is Kelly Dynes. I have always had a drive to help people in any way I can. I am passionate about my work and I love to connect with a wide variety of people. With my good sense of humour and compassionate nature I put people at ease.
I am passionate about social inclusion, particularly because I am a wheelchair user myself. I have a condition which weakens my bones, making it difficult for my legs to carry my weight. Despite this condition, I have an empowering and independent life. I want to share my good fortune with others and I support Homelands Trust in their endeavours. Part of my fee goes towards them as a donation to repay the use of their facilities, which are all fully wheelchair accessible.
