Kirsten Toyne MBACP, Dip Integrative Counselling/Dip Hypnotherapy-Psychotherapy
If you are struggling in some way or feeling stuck then counselling is a great step towards moving through those feelings and discovering the life you want to lead.
Maybe you want to feel or behave differently? Maybe you have too much on your plate or you need support? Or maybe life has lost its pleasure or meaning? Whatever the reason, as an Integrative Counsellor I can help you work through the issues you want to resolve.
By working together I can support you in understanding what is happening for you at a deeper level so that you can move towards not only feeling better but also experiencing real change in your life.
Having studied very broadly in Integrative Counselling, Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy, I adapt my approach to suit your needs, treating you as the individual you are.
Over the years I have worked with many issues including:
- Postnatal mental health issues
- Emotional eating issues
- Obsessive Compulsive disorder
- Relationship problems
- Childhood trauma/abuse
- Lack of confidence
- General discontentment
- Low self-esteem
I am situated in a peaceful area on the edge of Colchester only a few miles from the A12. There is free parking.
How To Get Started
I know it can be tough to make the first step to seeing a therapist. If you are interested then please feel free to contact me, where I am more than happy to answer any questions. If I am with a client I will always get back to you.
After that, we can arrange a free phone consultation so that we can discuss what you would like to get from therapy. It also allows you to decide whether you feel my approach is right for 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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
