Kay Rivers Ba(Hons) MBACP
Humanistic Counsellor in the Witterings West Sussex. Practicing short and long term therapy for individuals and couples. Face-to-face and telephone counselling offered. Relationship, anxiety, depression, addiction, terminal illness and bereavement are some of the areas I work with.
I work from a Humanistic Holistic perspective. This way of working allows the exploration of the whole person, mind, body and spirit and the connectivity which exists between them. My belief is that we all have the resources needed to heal and make change in our emotional wellbeing, this may be achieved within the therapeutic relationship which counselling offers.
How to Get Started! I offer a free telephone session as an introduction. If we feel comfortable working together we will then book weekly sessions for the next six weeks, after which we assess further sessions if needed.
Feel free to call or email with any questions.

Kay really listened. I have found that I am dealing with problems better, and am coping more. Counselling was a great help. SM
Didn't know what to expect at first, but Kay put me at ease. I felt comfortable, and was allowed to say it as it is. I feel now that I understand myself and where I have been. This has been a very comfortable and positive experience. TL
Many areas were discussed. Kay has helped to strengthen my character and confidence, ultimately helping in my process of recovery. SH
