Kirstie Burgess UKATA TA Dipl. Couples counsellor. Uckfield Crowborough
Hello and welcome to my profile.
I appreciate that asking for help can seem daunting so I offer an initial FREE telephone conversation lasting up to 15 minutes.
Therapy is a collaborative partnership and I value the equal relationship we build together. I will actively listen to you and your needs providing emotional support for what is going on for you.
I provide a confidential, non-judgemental space in which you can explore yourself and your beliefs. By working together therapeutically you can discover ways of behaving that encourage unwanted familiar patterns. The good news is you can decide to do things differently and make changes that you want to.
I describe and picture therapy as the same as when light shines on the right spot of a multi-faceted diamond. We can change, turn to show our brilliance.
I know it sounds like a cliche but love and relationships are important to me and that is why I have completed additional training in working with couples.
Equally important to me is having our own secure foundation which we can build upon and grow. We're human after all and search out relationships.
