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, as-well as my private practise.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Following our initial telephone consultation, the next step is to attend an assessment session. This lasts up to 50 minutes and will enable us to explore your reasons for undertaking counselling, and determine how we might work together going forward.
Initial telephone or face to face consultation (30 mins) - Free
Assessment session, 50 mins - £35
Full session, 50 mins - £35
Discretionary rates are available for those on lower incomes and students completing their personal therapy. This can be discussed at the assessment session.

Due to the recent COVID-19 circumstances I am only able to provide remote sessions, to protect the safety of my clients and myself. This can either be by telephone, FaceTime, Zoom or Skype.
Thank you for your understanding.
