Kathy Parsons MA, UKCP, MBACP, Dip IIP
As a qualified and experienced psychotherapist and counsellor - registered with UKCP and a member of BACP - I offer straightforward and jargon-free psychotherapy and counselling in both Holborn, central London and Stoke Newington, north London.
I have worked with individuals for over 16 years, both with long and short-term sessions dependent upon particular needs. My previous experience includes both working with and managing those in the creative arts, so I have a particular interest and understanding of all areas of creativity and the creative process.
Existential therapy aims to be of benefit for a wide range of distress - anxiety, stress, depression, addiction, eating disorders, realtionship issues - and many other problems associated with living. Therapy provides a time and place for two people to meet and talk and aims to help you move towards a more fruitful and meaningful existence and can help you manage your life more effectively. I offer face-to-face weekly individual sessions as well as sessions via Skype.
