Kirstan Murphy Adams B.Psych.,PGDip.,AdvDip.Psych.,MBACP Psychotherapist
I work with individuals, couples, families and children who are having emotional, behavioural and psychological problems such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, parent and child relationship difficulties, family breakdowns amongst others. I provide a safe place where clients can share their worries, issues and problems in order to come in contact with what is going on in their lives and to be able to resolve them.
I believe that building a good rapport between myself and my client is the building block of a good therapeutic relationship. To be able to share the journey with my client is by far the most beautiful experience, albeit being painful.
I offer short and long term therapy, sessions are held once a week and are 50 minutes long. I abide by BACP professional code of ethics.
