About me

Hi there, I am Kel; a qualified and experienced Integrative Counsellor working with adults and young people (14+) from a small private health clinic in Whitby, Ellesmere Port.

The clinic has free parking nearby, is approximately 1 mile from the train station and is close to bus links from Chester.

Being an Integrative Counsellor means I have trained in a variety of types of Counselling and I bring these together to offer you a service that best meets your needs.

Beyond this I have previously worked in Primary Care (NHS) offering general counselling, worked in conjunction with a local high school (12+) and with a number of EAP’s and organisations.

I am a qualified Counselling Supervision working with trainee and qualified Counsellors.

I strongly believe in the power of Counselling, and in your potential to improve whatever situation brought you to my profile today. For any more information visit my website or give me a call. We can arrange for a free initial telephone consultation so that you can ask any question you may have.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
