Therapy Station Ltd
Hello, I'm Kelly. Whether you want practical solutions, coping strategies, or a space to be heard and reflect, we can explore your situation and work towards your personal goals for therapy
I am experienced in working with a wide range of issues such as, anxiety, panic attacks, stress, low mood, depression, bereavement and loss, confidence, assertiveness, self esteem, abuse, trauma, self harm, eating issues and body image.
Think about these questions:
· How would your life be different if you felt better?
· What is the most important thing to you right now?
My approach is Person Centred and I utilise other therapies such Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused Therapy to help you sort out confused feelings, attempt a different approach, or just find a better way of living.
My aim is to offer a service based on what I feel is important to getting the most out of counselling - a trusting relationship, valuing you as an individual and strategies that are appropriate and workable for you and your life. The people I've worked with consistently feedback that I am genuine and professional.
You can text, email or call me, your initial 30 minute telephone consultation is free of charge, so we can discuss your situation and how we may work together before you commit to ongoing sessions.
I also have specialist training in the following areas:
I am a Practitioner in Eating Disorders through The National Centre for Eating Disorders to work with issues of eating distress. So if you are experiencing emotional or compulsive eating, chronic dieting or restrictive eating, binge eating or bulimia, we can work together to help you restore a healthy, enjoyable relationship with food and with yourself.
(I have completed specialist training Sleeping Disorders and strategies for managing them. If you are experiencing sleep disturbance we will can work in a targeted way to explore and gain an understanding of your specific problems to identify and implement strategies to improve your sleep efficiency.
