Kirstie Bratton MA, BSc, MBACP (Accred.)
I am a BACP Accredited counsellor and psychotherapist with a passion for helping people to explore their issues and express their feelings in a safe and confidential environment. In our sessions, we can think together about what is troubling you, and work through what is causing you pain or worry.
I have experience of counselling in NHS settings and also in charity organisations, working both with short term, time limited therapy, and also open ended counselling. My private counselling practice offers a comfortable space in which you are able to speak freely and without judgement. You can decide what the focus of our sessions will be, and how many sessions you would like.
Please contact me to arrange an initial session, during which we can discuss what has brought you to counselling, and how it may help you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Masters Degree in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Leicester, and a BSc (hons) Degree in Social Work from the University of Lincoln.
I am an Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and abide by their Ethical Framework for good practice.
I also have a valid and up to date DBS (formerly CRB).
