Kaiqing Yang, MA (Counselling & Psychotherapy), MBACP
I know reaching out for counselling might be a daunting step to take, but it will be worth it. Together, let's make more of today, tomorrow!
I believe each of us has the strength and ability to go through changes and difficulties, but you don't have to do that alone. Counselling is a place for you to feel, express, explore and grow safely at your own pace. I can't teach you how to live your own life, but I aim to be there for you, support you through the tough journeys and help you see your inner power that you've probably never realized.
Being a psychotherapist give me the honour to know each of my client, form deep connections, and witness the powerful changes they make. I found my independence and power and have walked through my own difficulties, I'd love to help you do the same.
I have a Master’s degree in "Person-Centred Experiential Counselling & Psychotherapy", and am a registered member of the BACP. I'm a co-founder of a multicultural counselling partnership Abbott & Yang. Unlike most private counsellors who work as sole practitioners or traders, we work as a team. We pull our knowledge and experience together and support each other professionally and emotionally to conduct a better service.
I’ve counselled at a Derby’s women service, several Nottingham colleges, and a youth centre in China. I hope to connect with people from all different backgrounds and help you find your strength and make changes that are right for you.
Person-centred counselling is about empowering you through the therapeutic relationship between us. You are offered the safe space to recover and heal, explore and discover, change and improve.
I would love to get to know you as a person instead of your labels or diagnosis, I respect that each of us is unique and has very special experience that cannot be represented by a single term. And I hope to meet you in this relationship as my genuine self, accompany you throughout the process and be there with you when you need me most.
Counselling is not only about fixing a broken life, it is also about improving and flourishing. It is not about changing the environment we are in, but preparing us with the confidence and power we need to face and deal with the possible future situations.
Where I work
I counsel from professional therapy rooms close to both Nottingham and Loughborough city centres. I also offer online counselling and by arrangement at other venues convenient to you.

- Feeling sad

- Personality disorders
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Culture shock: This can effect international workers, students and indeed almost any of us when we might have to "fit in" to an unfamiliar setting, such as a new work environment or family unit.
I'm also keen to help you increase the positive things in your life, such as:
- Personal and professional growth.
- Building on your strengths and successes.
- Making more of your good relationships.
Counselling can help you get more of what is right in your life, as well as get less of what isn’t right.
