About me

Hi and welcome to my profile.

I specialising in working with those feeling generalised anxiety disorder, depression, experiencing a lack of confidence and low self esteem.

My usual focus is on helping people who feel overwhelmed by daily stresses and pressures to feel better and lead a more balanced productive life. Issues may include anxiety, problems with relationships, Generalised Anxiety Disorder and panic attacks.

Offering a warm and supportive approach, I provide a confidential and non-judgemental space in which to talk. With training and experience in the main evidence-based psychotherapies, I work in a flexible and collaborative way, tailoring your session to your specific needs, ensuring your voice is heard and respected.

I work with a wide range of issues ranging from relationship problems, anxiety, depression, unwanted thoughts or behaviours, or who simply feel ‘stuck’ in their circumstances. I am familiar with issues related to work stress and other professional challenges. My approach is to explore the root causes of issues in the context of a supportive relationship. I am committed to giving each person I see a thoughtful and professional experience of therapy within a non-judgemental confidential and trusting environment.

Being a member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I work within its ethical framework. More details can be found here: www.bacp.co.uk.

I am experienced at supporting University students at all stages of their studies and am trained to work online to offer a continuation of sessions during the holidays.

Sometimes the hardest thing about Counselling is making the initial decision to ask for help. I offer a free, no obligations initial session to all new enquiries to provide you with the opportunity to talk to me and ask any questions you may have.  This can be over the phone or online (FaceTime, WhatsApp or Zoom).

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