Kay Baker MBACP
My name is Kay Baker (MBACP) I am a person centred counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
Person Centered Counselling is based on a fundamental belief in human kind, in the freedom and choice of lifestyle, meaning of life and the relevance of the individual’s experience. Clients can find their own solutions with the help of the therapists, rather than the therapist imposing their own views in the sessions.
As a person-centred counsellor I am of the view that clients have the internal resources to make the changes they want in their life. My goal is to provide the right therapeutic environment to allow those changes to take place.
I have also worked voluntarily, counselling adults at the Oak Tree Counselling Service, a service for the local community, providing counselling in the areas of grief, loss, trauma, abuse etc.
I offer one to one counselling to individuals. I do my best to create a friendly and empathic environment in order to support clients with the difficulties that they are going through.
My initial counselling session is to ascertain what the issue is and together we will decide how to proceed.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have years of experience working with people on a pastoral basis bringing to the sessions my own life skills.
I am a qualified mentor and teaching assistant and have been practicing for over 5 years in this field.
I have many years experience in education, administration, auditing, accounting and obtained banking qualifications in 1989 while studying in London. I have worked as a mentor/transition support worker with children from primary to secondary school age
From 2009 to 2010, while studying for my diploma, I worked as a counsellor in a doctors’ surgery providing brief counselling to patients/clients that were referred by the doctors.
