Our team at Hi Kent works with and supports people with hearing loss. We aim to help remove communication barriers so that relationships and independence are not adversely affected by hearing loss.
Our counselling service has been developed to build on this support and extend the reach out to people affected with hearing loss who may need someone to listen to them. We use focused empathic counselling techniques in a relaxing and positive environment. Our methods encourage clients to talk openly about anything from their personal life, family life, workplace and anything in between.
Living with any sensory loss can be anxiety provoking, isolating and frustrating. Whether you are the one it directly affects or if you are a partner, family member or friend. Accessing help from counsellors experienced in working with hearing loss can help you to feel heard and understood.
We aim to help you to:
- Understand your issues
- Clarify any confusion you may have
- Feel more control in your life
- Cope with your life more easily
- Approach life with a clearer mind
- Move forward with your life
If you need to talk? We are ready to listen!

Member organisations *
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
