Kirsty Ginger- BACP member.
I am a qualified Person centred therapist and I work in the Oakscross area of Stevenage.
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 first session so you can meet me and I can explain what Counselling is all about.
You may be struggling with a recent or past bereavement, work stress, general anxiety, sadness, loneliness, depression, relationship issues, obsessive behaviours, suicidal thoughts, lack of self-esteem, lack of assertiveness, passive aggressive behaviours,whatever your issue may be, I will offer you a safe, supportive environment so we can work through your issue(s) together.
I am experienced in a vast amount of areas and have spent the past 3 years working within mental health services and addiction agency's. Working within these settings has given me experience working with individuals experiencing dual diagnosis. This has been with a diverse range of individuals experiencing different issues, from all walks of life.
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.
If you wish to know more please call me.

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.
