About me

I am a qualified Integrative therapist which means that I use different therapeutic models for each of my clients as I don’t think one model fits all. Our sessions are an opportunity for you to share your thoughts and feelings and to be really heard in a safe, non-judgemental environment.

Life can be difficult at times and we often face challenges or have pressures in our lives that can seem overwhelming and just become too much. This may be due to a particular current life situation or experience, and you may feel that you would benefit from support outside your family and friends. Or perhaps it could be an event or experience from your past that hasn’t been resolved or sometimes we just don’t know why we are feeling the way we do. Whatever you circumstances we can work together to explore the reasons why you are feeling this way and discuss ways to resolve unhelpful patterns and move forward with your life.

I offer a free 20 minute initial session where we can discuss the reasons why you would like therapy. This will be an opportunity to discuss in more detail your needs and goals and gives you the chance to ask any questions that you might have.

If you are interested and would like to know more about how we could work together please visit my website www.kayvickerscounselling.com

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.
