Kelly Burnett. MBACP
Prior to training as a therapist I worked within the NHS and education, however, I decided to pursue my dream and set about re-training as a counsellor. As part of my training I had my own counselling which allowed me to experience firsthand how transforming therapy really is; it allowed me to explore how issues from my past had come to affect my “here and now”. In therapy my counsellor gave me the space to explore my thoughts and feelings resulting in some positive changes that remain with me now. Additionally, this really gave me the opportunity to experience what counselling would feel like for my clients- simultaneously life changing whilst initially daunting!
So how will Counselling help?
Counselling is a process people seek when they want changes in their life. It can help us come to understand our emotions and behaviours as well as helping us unravel our thoughts, which gives us clarity.
How can I help you?
As a fully qualified integrative counsellor I will work with you to help you understand your experiences from your perspective and incorporate the appropriate therapeutic techniques as the sessions progress. As a client it is important that you know I won’t judge you which allows you the space to open up and begin to understand yourself.
I understand how when going through something difficult, having someone to walk through it with you can make all the difference. This is something I feel privileged to do.
If you are experiencing difficulties and feel ready to take that first step and talk to someone without fear of judgement, please get in touch and begin your journey to becoming a healthier, happier you.

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.
