Kimberley Fry MBACP
New Season Counselling
I am a qualified counsellor, registered with the BACP. As well as my private practice I also work as a volunteer bereavement counsellor at a hospice in Windsor as well as working for a counselling service in South Buckinghamshire.
I have experience in working with various needs that clients bring, such as anger management, anxiety and trauma, depression, relationship problems, abuse, and bereavement.
When something is troubling us it can sometimes be difficult to see a away through our struggles, and in times such as these it can be helpful to reflect on our thoughts, behaviours, emotions and choices. In my work I offer a confidential space to reflect on these, and by working with you, I help to facilitate the opportunity for you to gain insight into your problems and also bring into awareness any changes you feel that you may need to make.
I use an integrative approach which means that I tailor my approach and methods in order to suit what is most relevant to you and the needs that you bring to counselling. Counselling approaches that use in my work with clients include:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS)
Where appropriate, I also give clients the opportunity to work more creatively (using art materials)
What will sessions be like?
You many feel nervous about seeking counselling, which is very normal. It is a brave step to take, and also an extremely positive one.
To begin with we would meet for an introductory session where we will have the opportunity to talk about why you are seeking counselling, what your goals and expectations of counselling are, and how many sessions you may need. After this we would meet for an agreed number of sessions (lasting between 50-60 mins each). Each session is a time for you to talk about any issues you feel are important, and there may also be particular goals that you would like to work towards.
How many sessions will I need?
I offer both short and long term counselling. The number of sessions you require will depend on the needs that you bring and what goals you would like to achieve through counselling. Short term counselling would normally last for 6-10 sessions and long term would be in excess of this. If you require long term counselling, we would have regular reviews every 6-8 sessions in order to talk about how you feel you have progressed and whether you need any further sessions.
As a registered member of the BACP I work in accordance with their ethical guidelines which ensures that I maintain high professional standards in my practice. As well as this, I also undertake at least 30 hours of professional development and training per year which helps to continually inform my work.
