Kay Lees, MBACP, BA(Hons), Prof. Dip. Couns
Hello, my name is Kay and I am a professional counsellor/psychotherapist offering a warm, empathic and confidential therapy service in the village of Wombourne, near Wolverhampton.
My counselling approach is one which absolutely values, respects and appreciates that every person and their life experience is unique. No two individuals experience life and what it presents in the same way, which is a common misconception in the wider world. This may be why, when people seek help by sharing problems with family and friends they may not feel truly heard, which can leave a person feeling isolated, vulnerable and alone with their emotional pain, unsure of what to do next.
Numerous factors contribute towards who we are and how we are able to deal with the difficulties life may throw at us. It is important to realise that your problems, issues or concerns and the feelings and emotions attached to them are very much your own and so is your way of processing them. This is what you and I working together will aim to help you discover and work towards positive change.
Training, qualifications & experience
My professional status is that I am an MBACP, which means I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for Practice. My name can be found on the Professional Standards Authority accredited register.
My qualifications include a BA Honours Degree in Integrative Counselling and a Professional Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I also hold certificates for professionally working with people who have been affected by domestic violence and abuse and sexual violence and abuse and people who have been affected by the effects of crime including bereavement.
All of my professional counselling and psychotherapy work has been one to one with Primary and Secondary Care NHS patients. This includes on site clinic work and also community work, visiting Secondary Care patients in their own homes and liaising with their broader mental health teams to manage and support patients’ mental health difficulties.
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.
