About me

Hi, I'm Kirsty

KAM stands for; Kindness, Acceptance, Meaning the core values I hold both personally and professionally.  When working with me I will provide you with a safe and non-judgmental space where you can feel heard, and supported to deal with the issues and challenges that have brought you to seek support.

As an integrated psychotherapist / counsellor, I can work responsively to your needs,  using a range of interventions, and finding the best approach for you.

I offer a face-to-face service in a welcoming environment, adhering to COVID 19 guidelines. For those who may prefer not to travel, or are shielding, I work online and by telephone and have undertaken additional learning to ensure both are as comfortable an experience for you as the client.

Training, qualifications & experience

Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, with over 30 years working in Health & Social Care settings and relevant qualifications in that field.

I am also a Companion with Seasons for Growth - an educational support for grief and loss, and have experience of counselling those receiving palliative care and treatment in and out of hospice settings.

I have both professional and personal experience of the impact on individuals and families with a diagnosis of Dementia and Parkinson's Disease.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
