My name is Kirsty and I am a fully qualified counsellor working in Cambridge. If you are looking for someone to talk things over with, please do get in touch.
I can help with a wide range of issues and concerns, including relationship issues, family problems, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, pregnancy and fertility issues, menopause, sexuality, gender issues, stress, bereavement, life changes and simply feeling sad.
Counselling helped me enormously when I felt overwhelmed by a stressful job and events in my personal life. Now I'm glad I can help others talk through life decisions, difficult times, life-changing events, crises and that feeling that something isn't right. I hope that I will be able to offer you a counselling experience that is helpful and supportive.

I work from home two days a week and see people of all ages and with all issues.
I currently work for Centre 33 as a school counsellor, seeing young people with a wide range of issues. I have been with Centre 33 for over a year.
