Hi, I'm Kayleigh. I'm a member of the BACP (00846297), offering one to one talking therapy in Bournemouth and Poole.
Sometimes life can get difficult, talking to someone in a safe space without fear of judgement can be helpful. At the heart of my practice is my belief that we all deserve to be who we are, without fear of judgement from those around us.
Through my counselling experience, I have been able to work with children and adults facing life's struggles, such as; depression, anxiety, low self- esteem, emotional and physical pain caused by traumatic events, bereavement, loss and the stresses of day to day life.
As a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, my role is to be alongside you, listening, understanding and encouraging you, in an environment in which you feel safe and respected.
Together we can find a way of working that suits your needs and allows you to be heard and understood. With a greater sense of well being and understanding you will feel empowered to make changes and move forward with your life, using tools to help you cope in those difficult times.
Training, qualifications & experience
My private practise KO-Counselling in Bournemouth, enables me to work with a range of clients in a very personalised way, drawing on 8 years experience of working with children, young people and their families, adults and individuals experiencing more complex mental health needs.
I have provided counselling for children and young adults in a local Dorset School and adults in various voluntary settings.
