Kelly Thomas Fdsc, IDVA (caada accred), MBACP
I have extensive experience in working with individuals that are experiencing relationship difficulties such as struggling to come to terms with the end of a relationship, affairs and betrayals, separation and divorce, relationship recovery, fear of change, difficult family dynamics and domestic abuse in all forms including, emotional, physical and sexual. For over a decade I have worked with clients that have experienced a variety of difficulties for which they have sought support such as depression, anxiety and post traumatic stress disorder. I am the developer and facilitator of a course designed to assist with the discovery of personal identity and promotion of confidence to build the self belief required to make positive life choices.
How Counselling can help-
Whatever problems or issues that have led you here can be worked through. You may be feeling anxious, stressed, depressed or have no clue why you are feeling how you currently are. You may have reached a point of crisis in your life - discussing what is going on for you and focusing on ways to move forward will help. Sometimes this can involve acceptance of past events, recognising patterns of behavior and challenging yourself to make positive changes. We will work together to identify what is truly going on for you and find a way forward for you to be able to live the life that you deserve.
What to expect in your first session-
Our first session together will provide you with the opportunity to decide if you feel that I can help you. We can discuss what you hope to achieve from counselling and any concerns that you may have in a safe, non judgmental, comfortable space.
I am a fully qualified Counsellor/psychotherapist. As a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I adhere to their Ethical Framework for good practice and provide you with a safe, non judgmental space to explore and resolve what may have led you to seek therapy.
My approach to therapy is integrative, this means that I am able to respect your unique needs by drawing upon a range of psycho-therapeutic approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic, person centered and humanistic therapies. I offer short term, time limited and long term therapy dependent on your requirements. As I work in a relational way I do not offer skype or telephone service.
If you feel I may be able to help you, please feel free to contact me and arrange an initial appointment.
