About me

Hello, I'm Kelly, I am an experienced counsellor. Whether you want a space to be heard, coping strategies, or practical solutions we can explore your situation and work towards your personal goals for therapy.

Style of therapy:

Research shows that the quality of the relationship between the client and the counsellor, is essential. I place this at the heart of my approach. I will always listen to what you want to achieve from therapy and base our sessions around this, and regularly check how you are finding the sessions and our progress.

Client feedback about therapy with me:

"The difference it's made to my life in such a short time is absolutely priceless."

"I love my therapy sessions. I look forward to them each week and leave feeling so much stronger."

"The way we talk always make me see things differently so I can understand how I can change the way I think and act."

"I feel heard, understood and accepted."

What to expect from Counselling:

Counselling can help you understand yourself better and the way you think, which will ultimately help you develop a clearer understanding of your problems. The more informed you are the easier it becomes to navigate your way through challenges.

My approach is based around helping you to get the most out of your therapy sessions - valuing and focusing on you to help you gain more self-understanding and acceptance, sort out confused feelings, or make different choices that will empower you in a positive way.

My experience and qualifications:

I am an experienced Counsellor accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I qualified as a counsellor in 2014 and have a range of experience working with, but not limited to, low mood, anxiety, panic attacks, stress, depression, bereavement and loss, assertiveness, sleep problems, self confidence, eating and body image issues. I am also a practitioner in Eating Disorders (see details below)

My main counselling qualifications are a degree in Psychology; Diploma in Therapeutic counselling; Diploma in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy).

I continually develop my practice by regularly attending training events and courses (detailed in next section).

Areas of specialist training

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 also completed specialist training in Sleeping Disorders and strategies for managing them. If you are experiencing sleep difficulties, we can work in a targeted way to explore and gain an understanding of your specific problems, identifying and implementing strategies to improve your sleep efficiency.

Where to start?:

You can contact me via email, call or text message. We will arrange an initial 20 minute telephone consultation which is free of charge, so we can discuss your situation and how we may work together before you commit to ongoing sessions.
