Kelly Green - Counselling Psychotherapist BSc (Hons) Reg. MBACP
***AVAILABILITY FROM MARCH 2021***
I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist based in East London. I have a wide range of experience working with children, adolescence and adults, from diverse backgrounds with a range of difficulties.
My counselling and therapy sessions offer a non-judgemental space for you to identify what you would like to change. Whatever you are going through we can explore together to help you make sense of your experiences.
I use an integrative approach which means I am trained in a number of different models of therapy. This enables me to offer alternative methods of helping you and allows me to adapt my approach to suit your individual needs. By bringing together my theoretical and psychological understanding, I am able to guide those seeking help towards the direction of positive change. For me, therapy is not about telling you what to do, it is about nurturing personal growth to help you to find your own solutions.
The essence of my approach is empathic understanding and emotional connection with my clients to help build a successful therapeutic relationship. I view this as being beneficial in the client’s journey of emotional and psychological healing.
What happens in a therapy session?
Therapy involves having an opportunity to explore your world in a confidential setting. I see therapy as a collaborative partnership. Coming to therapy can offer you a comfortable space for you to unload the stresses of life in which you can experience being heard.
Being supported, valued and understood can lead to new ways of understanding yourself. Establishing and setting therapeutic goals can help you identify what you hope to achieve or accomplish. I aim to help you to understand what is causing and maintaining your difficulties as it is important for progress and recovery. I will be guided by you and together we can find new ways of dealing with the challenge you are facing.
Finding the right counsellor can feel overwhelming. You are welcome to contact me, as I provide an initial free 15-minute telephone consultation. This will give you the opportunity to establish whether you would like us to work together before you commit to therapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and hold BSc (Hons) Counselling degree. The foundation of my therapeutic approach is rooted in:

I am committed to my ongoing professional development and attend regular conferences, workshops and training, as well as carry out extensive research. My area of research includes the experiences of clinical supervisors, and supervisees emotional complexities when working with anorexia nervosa.
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.
