About me

Hi, I'm Kirsty, I am a qualified Person centred therapist.

I understand that counselling may feel daunting at first but I will provide you with a non-judgemental, compassionate, calm and understanding environment, so you can talk through any issues you have, and together we can find solutions.

I believe finding the right counsellor that suits you is the most important first step in resolving your issue(s). Therefore, I do not charge a fee for the consultation. You can use this time to meet me and I can answer any questions you may have.

You may be struggling with a recent or past bereavement, work stress, general anxiety, sadness, loneliness, depression, domestic abuse, relationship issues, substance misuse, obsessive behaviours, suicidal thoughts, lack of self-esteem, lack of assertiveness or passive aggressive behaviours.

Whatever your issue, I will offer you a safe, supportive space to work through your issue(s) together. I have around 10 years experience helping people in with many different issues and I continue to develop my knowledge and understanding.

I will facilitate an environment that will help others to discover their true selves and move beyond their difficulties. This enables you to improve your relationship with self and others, increased self-knowledge, self-esteem and coping strategies, along with better communication and reconnecting with purpose, meaning and value in life after difficult times, whenever that has been.

I work online and in the Oakscross area of Stevenage, please get in touch.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
