About me

Hello. My name is Kai. Welcome to my page.

I am a fully qualified BACP/ACCPH Registered Counsellor and Equine Facilitated Practitioner.

I offer a safe space to explore what you would like to, without judgement and completely confidential. Your wellbeing is my number one priority. It is also my belief that everyone has the capacity to change. With that in mind, if your in distress with either current difficulties or past traumas, with my intuitive, compassionate way of working I will prioritise your needs in a supportive manner in which you can grow and move free of your difficulties.

Counselling and Equine Facilitated Learning can help you heal. They can offer you freedom from the difficulties in your life, be it from current difficulties or past traumas. My approach is integrative which allows room for creativity when tailoring my ways of working to suit your needs. Some examples of issues I work with are Anxiety, Trauma, Stress, Work Stress, Burnout, PTSD, Depression, Bereavement, Animal Bereavement, Phobias, General Anxiety Disorder, Feeling Sad, Social Anxiety and more.

I work from private practice in York. Sessions are 1 hour in length and I'm available Monday to Saturday.  My opening hours are 10 AM to 7 PM. I offer short or long term therapy.

I'm happy to answer any questions you might have and also happy to offer an initial informal session for you to decide if you would like to work together and find out more about the therapy process and if its right for you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I also offer Equine Facilitated Learning - what that means is I facilitate interactions between clients and horses for the purposes of self development for the client.

EFL is wide in scope and doesn't always have to be therapy based in nature.

EFL fees are £60 for an hour to an hour and half session.

EFL is very effective as horses are primarily prey animals they have keenly attuned senses to their environment and anyone in it. They respond to the client in the moment which allows for exploration of the client's world and how they interact within it.

The learning in EFL is the client learning about themselves through interactions with horses. This learning leads to self development and can be profound in nature.
